Philips’ upcoming webinars
This series aims to discuss how intelligent lighting design and specification can enhance our experience of the contemporary city and create the urban identify needed to deliver thriving ‘liveable’ places.
The series includes:
1) Supporting health and wellbeing - the circle of light (pre-recorded)
Presenter: Luc Schlangen, principal scientist (light, health & wellbeing), Philips Research
Date: On 14 October a link to the video will be sent via email to those who have registered.
As well as vision, light elicits many other non-visual responses in physiology and behaviour. Sleep, concentration, mood, depression, anxiety and delirium are all influenced by light. This video will explain how lighting strategies can support health and wellbeing. Click here to register.
2) Adaptive lighting for exterior applications: a laboratory to marketplace
Presenter: Dr Michael Siminovitch, director, Rosenfeld chair in energy efficiency, University of California, Davis
Date: 23 October 4pm to 5pm CET
Networked adaptive lighting control systems present advantages for academic and corporate campuses and municipal entities. These advanced exterior lighting systems save energy, streamline maintenance, compile occupancy data and expedite reporting on energy usage and savings. This presentation will focus on best practices for exterior lighting applications. Click here to register.
3) Luminous Talks 3: The Changing room - AVAILABLE AS WEBINAR AND LIVE SHOW
Presenters: Jeffrey Schnapp, faculty teaching professor, Harvard School of Design, and faculty director of metaLab; AdamYarinsky, principal, Architecture Research Office; David Lewis, associate director, Parsons, and principal, LTL Architects
Date: 12 November, 4.30pm to 7.30pm EDT, Parsons, New York City
This year’s Luminous Talks, titled The Changing Room, is a collaboration between Parsons the New School for Design. It will bring together architects, designers and scholars to explore the dynamic potential of environments in which both natural and artificial forms of light activate interior space.

4) Challenging the light meter for outdoor lighting systems
Presenter: Mark Rea director and professor of cognitive science, Lighting Research Center
Date: 8 December 4pm to 5pm CET
People feel safe and secure at night when outdoor facilities are brightly illuminated. Increasing light level requires more energy and increases sky glow. We usually measure that with a conventional light meter calibrated in photopic lumens per square meter (lux). This webinar will challenge the light meter’s correlation towards our perception of brightness, and its impact on feelings of safety and security. Click here to register.
