CIE is celebrating its one hundredth anniversary! A century during which our knowledge of lighting fundamentals has taken enormous leaps forward, bringing new applications of light supported by both technological advances and economic success. A century that began with the revolution of the electric light and efforts to bring both the electric light bulb and the power it required into common use ends with the need to reduce energy distribution and use, and brings a technology that promises to achieve this for lighting.
Between April 12 and 19, 2013 the CIE statutory bodies will meet, Divisions and Technical Committees will gather to find ways to light up the future, and an international conference with panel discussions, presented papers, a poster exhibition and participants from all continents will take place in Paris to exchange knowledge, enlarge networks and celebrate together.
A PhD Workshop as well as a CIE Symposium on Colour Vision to honour Yves Le Grand will complete CIE’s birthday celebrations.
Looking forward to a fantastic springtime in Paris!
