September conference addresses Next LED Generation

July 19, 2005
The latest in a successful LED conference series aims to take discussion of solid-state lighting to the next level.
Publishing company Emap, which produces Lighting Equipment News, has announced the 4th conference in its series on LEDs. The upcoming event entitled “The Next LED Generation”, will take place on 15th September 2005 in London.

Last year, Emap organized two conferences in London (see Lighting community outlines challenges for LED industry) and one in Brussels (see Brussels conference sprouts better understanding of LEDs).

The conference will explore the technology frontier of solid-state lighting and demonstrate the application of the latest LED technology in both the current and emerging luminaire markets.

Aimed at consultants, designers and manufacturers in the lighting industry, this event will focus on the opportunities presented by new technologies and the challenges of using them in LED lighting applications. Expert speakers from Cree Lighting, Philips, Lumidrives, Lamina Ceramics, Color Kinetics, LEDs Magazine and Super Vision will outline key solutions for working with LEDs and incorporating them in lighting design.

The conference will cover a wide range of issues including: technological advances in creating and sustaining high-power LEDs as well as best practice methods on how to work with LEDs from procurement, installation and management. In particular, the conference will look at the latest solutions for colour binning, thermal management, controls for dimming and colour sequencing and optical lenses to maximise and enhance the use of LEDs in new market applications.

To keep up to date with the development of standards and specifications, a group of experts will address current guidelines and proposed standards for optical measurements, LED packaging and safe handling. This conference will also address the impact of international patent law for the industry and lighting professionals.

Finally, experts at the conference will offer practical working knowledge of LEDs and hands-on demonstrations and case studies on how to successfully integrate LEDs in lighting projects.
