Japan to host White LEDs and Solid State Lighting conference

Jan. 31, 2007
White LEDs-07, an international conference on white LEDs and solid-state lighting, is to be held in Tokyo, Japan in November 2007.
A conference on White Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Solid State Lighting (SSL) will take place in Japan in November.

Sponsored by the Illuminating Engineering Institute of Japan, the White LEDs-07 event will be held on November 26-30, 2007 at Le Meridien Pacific Tokyo (Hotel Pacific Tokyo), Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

The organizers say this is the first international conference to be held in Japan on white LED lighting technologies. Japan is active both commercially and academically in the development of white LEDs for lighting and illumination. However, SSL lacks the important scientific background of lighting source technologies because white LEDs have been created by semiconductor devices and luminescent materials.

This conference will give not only some exchange ideas and views on technical problems and advices in white LED lighting system and design, but also intimate academic exchange among conference participants.

The conference (White LEDs-07) will cover all aspects of fundamental and applied research on white LEDs and SSL. The aims of the conference is to provide a forum to discuss in a stimulating and informed atmosphere those subjects which are of common interest for scientists, engineers and designers working on white LEDs and SSL, and related areas. The conference will include both oral and poster sessions.

The conference language is English, and the deadline for submission of abstracts of contributed papers is due 27th June, 2007.

Anyone interested in exhibiting at or sponsoring the conference, or wishing to be included obn the mailing list, should e-mail the conference office at: [email protected].
