LpS 2016: what to expect

(Austria) – Taking place 20-22 September, sixth instalment of LED professional Symposium to focus on “Smart Technologies for Lighting Innovations” with over 100 exhibitors expected to attend.

The sixth international LED professional Symposium +Expo in Bregenz will take place from 20-22 September. Looking to reinforce creativity, innovations and new lighting solutions, the conference program will focus on “Smart Technologies for Lighting Innovations.”

The lighting sector is facing enormous challenges. The LEDification process is ongoing while Intelligent Lighting and Human Centric Lighting strongly affect future lighting developments. New stakeholders, market players and organisations play important roles in future businesses and technology opportunities. State-of-the art knowledge, trend views and collaborations are vital for success in the highly dynamic market. In this environment the annual three-day LpS event builds a platform to follow the latest trends, predict next generation lighting solutions, enforce collaborations and trigger lighting innovations.

2016’s conference program will concentrate on Future Trends, Intelligent Light, Internet of Things, Light Quality, Light Sources, Intelligent Lighting, Optics, Thermal Management, Reliability, Testing, and Applications, in four parallel tracks. More than 70 international speakers from key organisations such as IBM, Johnson Controls, Bartenbach, Lumileds, Tridonic, Philips, Holst Center, Infineon, NXP, and several renowned universities, will present their findings in the opera house and James Bond film location, the Festspielhaus Bregenz, on beautiful Lake Constance, Austria.

LpS 2016 will be opened by Nobel Prize Laureate Professor Shuji Nakamura from the University of California Santa Barbara (the inventor of the blue and white LEDs), who will present the latest developments in LED and Laser-Diode technologies. The opening will also give insights into the strategic goals of the European Commission and LightingEurope, the voice of the European lighting industry. Secretary General, Diederik de Stoppelaar will highlight their strategic lighting roadmap 2025 in the field of intelligent lighting.

A “Design meets Technology Forum” is planned where the needs and requirements of lighting designers will be discussed and interaction with lighting engineers and system designers will be sought. The creative lighting community will also be given the chance to present their solutions from the component up to the lighting systems in the new “Start-Up Innovators” area. Besides the technical innovations, a Light-Art Design area opens the door to lighting designers and lighting artists, presenting their objects in the foyer of the opera house. In addition, intelligent light engines will be presented in a workshop covering spectrally and tunable LED and OLED lighting. The European project HI-LED will be covering “Intelligent Solutions” for museum, horticulture and street lighting. Finally, on day three, EPIC, the European Photonics Industry Consortia, will offer a workshop on Horticulture Lighting and present their latest findings in plant growth system lights.

The organisers are expecting more than 1,500 visitors from over 50 countries. More than 100 exhibitors will present new products, latest innovations and the current status of LED and OLED lighting technologies in a 3,000sqm exhibition area. Over 20 media partners, about fifteen supporting organisations and several scientific partners are supporting the LpS 2016 event.
