Session Agenda and Invited Speakers
June 4, 2015
  There has always been a great deal of overlap in the technology behind lighting and displays.  In honor of The Year of Light and in recognition of the newly signed Friendship Agreement between SID and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA), the SID/IES Lighting Track mini-symposium aims to deliver in-depth coverage in a diverse range of topics of common interest to both lighting and display professionals.  Abstracts for these speakers are shown here.
Advanced Light Sources, Components and Systems I
•Edge-lit and other flat-panel LED light sources
•Advances in high-brightness white LEDs

(Invited) “Current status of OLED lighting panels”
Dr. Seongsoo Jang, LG Chem

(Invited) “LED Edge-lit flat panel light sources”
Brett Shriver, Global Lighting Technologies
Display Technologies for LED Lighting Part I: Optical Components
William Edmonds, 3M
Display Technologies for LED Lighting Part II: Scalable Optical Architectures Enabled by Modular Film-Based Components
William Edmonds, 3M
The Effect of Lighting and Lighting Application on Health and Perception
•Impact on Circadian Rhythm and Other Health Effects
•Visual neuroscience behind lighting or display design 
•Perception of glare from light sources
•Visualizing lighting on displays

 * There will be additional OLED sessions outside of this 1-day session for more in-depth discussions in OLED device physics and materials.  Access to this 1-day session is included for those attending the Display Week Symposium. It is also available as a stand-alone event to our guests from IESNA, for a third of the cost of overall Symposium attendance.  (SID membership will be required, as it is for all tech events.)  Registration for Display Week 2015 will open early this winter.
