First Announcement and Call for Contributions
CIE Tutorial and Expert Symposium on Measurement Uncertainties in 
Photometry and Radiometry for Industry
September 11 – 12, 2014, Vienna, Austria

New international measurement standards are being developed by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE). In these standards special emphasis is given to the evaluation of measurement uncertainties. 
CIE offers a one-day tutorial on measurement uncertainty concepts in photometry and radiometry. Invited experts will present lectures from basic concepts to advanced techniques in photometric and colorimetric measurements, aimed at engineers, testing-laboratory staff and researchers in LED and solid state lighting measurement and other fields. Special emphasis is given to applied concepts.
On the following day, a scientific symposium will feature contributed papers. 
The event is organized by CIE Division 2. It will be held in conjunction with meetings of several Technical Committees of CIE Division 2.

Who should attend
This meeting is open to everyone with an interest in any aspect of the measurement of visible radiation and colour: photometry, radiometry and colorimetry. Early registration is recommended to ensure adequate space and support, and to allow time for distribution and review of relevant documents.

The event will be held in the centre of the city of Vienna.  Further information on the venue, transportation and accommodation will be available soon.

Preliminary Timetable
September 9 - 10      CIE Division 2 Technical Committee Meetings
September 11 - 12    Tutorial and Expert Symposium

Call for Papers
The one-day scientific symposium will feature contributed papers. Ample time will be available for round-table discussions. A poster session may also be held depending on the number of papers received.
Authors are invited to submit two-page extended abstracts of their proposed contributions, in English, no later than June 16, 2014, by e-mail to: The abstract template available from the conference webpage should be used. The extended abstracts should be suitable for publishing in an electronic format (if accepted). 

Papers should deal with one of the following subjects:
  • Uncertainty of spectrally, spatially and angularly-resolved quantities;
  • Advances in methods for photometry, radiometry and colorimetry including spectral and spatial correction methods (band-pass, stray-light, spatial and angular resolution);
  • Photometry of OLEDs, (high-power) LEDs, and SSL products (including energy saving aspects);
  • Imaging luminance measurement devices and near field goniophotometry;
  • Other developments and new techniques in photometry and radiometry.
Authors will be notified of acceptance of their abstract by June 26, 2014. Accepted authors will also be requested to submit a full paper for the proceedings. Instructions for preparing camera-ready papers will be distributed to the authors after acceptance of abstracts. Final camera-ready papers are due at the Symposium. The proceedings of the symposium will be made available after the event.

The International Commission on Illumination - also known as the CIE from its French title, the Commission Internationale de l´Eclairage - is devoted to worldwide cooperation, standarization and the exchange of information on all matters relating to the science and art of light and lighting, colour and vision, photobiology and image technology. With strong technical, scientific and cultural foundations, the CIE is an independent, non-profit organisation that serves member countries on a voluntary basis. Since its inception in 1913, the CIE has become a professional organisation and has been accepted as representing the best authority on the subject and as such is recognised by ISO as an international standardisation body. 

CIE Division 2 deals with the measurement of light and radiation. It studies standard procedures for the evaluation of ultraviolet, visible and infrared radiation, and optical properties of materials and luminaires and for the characterization of the associated measurement instrumentation.
