Call for Papers

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to the Third National Conference on Lighting for Young Scientist with international participation (Lighting 2018), which will be held from September 20 to 22, 2018 in Varna, Bulgaria. Lighting 2018 is organized under the auspices of the National Committee of Illumination in Bulgaria (NKO). The NKO is an independent non-profit association, which has over 50 years of history. It follows the CIE policy on the science of light and lighting, color and vision, photobiology and other relevant areas.
The conference provides an ideal place for young researchers to present the latest research activities and describe recent and emerging developments and directions in the field of lighting and lighting technologies. It aims at getting together young researchers to exchange and share their experience and research results within (but not limited) to the following topics:

[1] Energy efficient lighting with the use of renewable energy sources
[2] LED Lighting
[3] Ergonomics and physiology of vision
[4] Photo biological risk from artificial lighting
[5] Interior Lighting. Quality of lighting
[6] Exterior and road lighting
[7] Telemanagement of indoor and outdoor lighting
[8] Photometry and calorimetry
[9] Daylighting
[10] Common lighting aspects. Terminology. Standardization

Lighting 2018 mainly focuses on providing a scientific forum for all young researchers around the world and to enable state of the art knowledge exchange among them as well as leading lighting experts.
