LpS returns for its seventh year this September

The seventh international LED professional Symposium + Expo (LpS 2017) will take place from 26th to 28th September in Bregenz, Austria.

More than 100 specialist lectures, workshops, forums, and in the exhibition, over 1,600 visitors will be discussing the topics surrounding ‘Smart Technologies for Lighting Innovations’.

The conference programme encompasses strategies and markets, engineering and design, testing and applications, and covers the central building blocks of lighting systems, from the component or materials right the way through to the application. The design questions concern topics such as reliability, costs and issues around the production of modern lighting systems.

The LpS 2017 is primarily aimed at technology experts from industry and research, as well as those who are curious about the latest developments in lighting technology.

Awards for the Best Scientific Paper (LED professional Scientific Award), the best technology product (LpS Award) and the best application system (TiL Award) are a focal point of both the industry and the academia.

“This conference is very important to us, because we can improve our knowledge about new technologies, LEDs and different kind of applications and to bring these new acknowledgement to our projects and to our design methodologies,” said Giulia Gobino, LDT Lighting Design Team, Italy.

The integration of light within the world of information technologies is a leading trend in the lighting sector after the introduction of LED/OLED technology. Experts will share their thoughts on the interfaces we engage with every day, the form of the data transmissions, and about the important topic of the connection to the Internet cloud and the related safety issues.

Global giants Philips and Huawei will give Keynotes that tackle the topic of Connected Lighting from the point of view of industry and urban planning.

Elsewhere, as the lighting industry continues to develop, these developments require new strategies in order to face the ever-changing market conditions. Lectures by Philips, Zumtobel Group, Trilux, Feilo Sylvania, Osram and other industry leaders will address this complex theme.

At the conference, the most contemporary products, investment goods and services will be presented. From the component to the module, from the measuring instrument to the production machine and from research facilities to the test laboratories, the exhibition offers an insight into the progress of the lighting industry.

“LpS 2017 covers the complete value chain in lighting from an industry and research point of view. Together with the co-located Trends in Lighting Forum & Show, dedicated to Smart Lighting, the events offer a holistic view into the lighting sector,” said Event Director, Siegfried Luger.
