Important notice!

Dear colleague,

You may have noticed that we have been quite silent about our Experiencing Light 2020 conference. We were startled by the COVID-19 outbreak at first, but, to be honest, we only gradually came to realize the gravity and longevity of this pandemic. Our hearts and minds are with those who have lost loved ones, or are otherwise gravely pained because of it. And yet, even though many countries show promising results in flattening the curve and lowering transmission rates, some institutes project a long tail or even revival in autumn.

As a result, we have decided to postpone our conference to 2021. Much as we regret this, we simply would not want to risk the health of our participants by organizing a large international event. Also, we would feel burdened by requesting so many scholars’ efforts in writing and reviewing submissions, without being convinced that, in return, we would be offering a rich and inspiring live event.

Our research methods symposium for PhD students in lighting, LumeNet2020, which is a much smaller scale event, will continue as planned and if necessary, will be held online.

We thank you for your stimulating enthusiasm, and for helping us spread the news. We do hope you will be with us again, when we revive our ambitions. Expect to hear from us by the end of the year. Until then, be well, remain lighthearted,

Yvonne de Kort, on behalf of the full organizing committee of Experiencing Light 2020

LumeNet 2020

While Experiencing Light 2020 is postponed to 2021, LumeNet 2020 will continue. Lumenet is a research methods workshop targeted at PhD students who study the effects of light on humans. LumeNet 2020 will take place on November 10 and 11, 2020. The aim of LumeNet, established by Prof. Steve Fotios and Dr. Jens Christoffersen, is to provide an opportunity for doctoral students to critically discuss the objectives and methods of their research projects with distinguished researchers and with their peers in the field of lighting. You can find out more about LumeNet here.
