LRC To Host International Symposium on the Science and
Technology of Lighting
The 13th International Symposium on the Science and Technology of Lighting (LS13)—an elite forum of scientists and engineers sharing the most recent research and development in the science and technology of light sources, lighting systems, and their key application fields—will take place June 24-29 at Rensselaer. The event is hosted by the Rensselaer Lighting Research Center (LRC), the world’s leading university-based research and education organization devoted to lighting.

The International Symposium on the Science and Technology of Lighting (LS) has been held regularly since 1973 and provides a unique opportunity for the worldwide community of technology leaders from the lighting industry, research organizations, and academia to meet, present, and discuss their recent work in lighting.
LS community interests have reflected contemporary lighting technology during its nearly 40-year history. This has resulted naturally in a growing and significant representation of solid-state lighting (SSL) technologies in its program.
“The conference will provide a stimulating and informed environment for scientists and engineers to discuss all aspects of fundamental and applied research on thermal, discharge, and plasma technologies, as well as SSL, specifically white light emitting diodes (LEDs) and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs),” said LRC Professor and Director Mark Rea.
LS13 is taking place at a time of rapid change in the science and technology of lighting. “The LRC and the conference organizers both have well-established, close connections with the light source manufacturing industry, and together we are working to ensure that attendees will gain a comprehensive overview of the current status of the lighting field, its challenges, and its opportunities,” said Rea.
The LS organization takes a comprehensive planning approach to ensure the meeting faithfully reflects current activity in the field of lighting science and technology. This has resulted in increasing representation of lighting systems applications in the conference program. In an effort to better reflect the scope of the content, the LS organization has slightly modified the symposium name from years past, when it was called International Symposium on the Science and Technology of Light Sources.
