The Illuminating Engineering Society has announced its Annual Conference. This year, the conference will focus on how the lighting industry is being transformed by energy standards and whether these priorities can be met while providing good lighting quality.

The day prior to the conference sessions (Sunday) begins with a welcome by IES President, John Selander, and the presentation of the IES Illumination Design Awards for 2010.

A two day conference is planned for Monday and Tuesday, November 8-9. Day one begins with the opening session: The Great Debate: The Banning of the Incandescent Bulb, a debate between Howard Brandston, a world-renowned lighting designer, and Kaj den Daas, former Executive Vice-President of Philips Lighting, B.V., one of the largest lighting manufacturers in the world. The debate will be moderated by Dr. Ian Lewin, a well-respected lighting researcher and designer. The Quality Lighting in a Greener World conference theme continues with three seminars: Why Fluorescent Lighting is Not Dead, Quality Lighting vs Energy Codes, and A Real World Energy Story: Whole Foods; four paper sessions: Daylighting I, Performance Measures/Testing, Daylighting II, and Office Lighting; and a General Session: Green Building Climate Change. The last two events of the day include the IES Progress Report—notable new products, services, trends and publications during the previous year, and a Product Showcase and Reception, featuring new products and services from exhibitors.

Day two: Two General Sessions: Broad changes to the IES Lighting Handbook, 10th Edition and Modeling a Sustainable World (model lighting ordinance); Toronto Off-Site Lighting Tours (The Schad Gallery at the Royal Ontario Museum, Telus Corporate Headquarters, and the Robarts Library at the University of Toronto); Workshop for Lighting Designers; CEO Roundtable: The Transformation of the Lighting Industry; Paper Sessions: Technology, Human Factors, LEDs; Poster Session; and two Seminars: Why Go Organic? Envisioning OLED Lighting and IES Public Policy Interests. The evening is concluded with the IES Gala Dinner and awards program.
