The keynote speeches by Dietmar Zembrot, President of Lighting Europe, Menno Treffers of the Zhaga Consortium and Alfred Felder from Tridonic will be followed by two parallel lecture tracks with a total of 45 expert talks on the subjects of LEDs, OLEDs, LED Future, LED Systems, Drivers and Control Elements, Optics, Thermal Management and Implementation. Concurrent to the lectures, there will be two workshop tracks with a total of five distinctive workshops. These workshops will offer symposium attendees detailed information about UL standardizations and certifications, 3-D module designs, printed optic technologies, LED system design tools and LED test procedures. In addition, there will be two interactive tech-panels where attendees can discuss topics of the future in the area of LEDs and OLEDs. Focus topics include LED and OLED technologies, System performance and reliability, and notably Smart Lighting and digitalization.
Highlights of the presentation include, among others, the track about LED future developments. Within this track, Annetta Kelso from Philips Lighting will discuss the complex technological and business challenges for LED lighting and how to find a balanced lighting roadmap. Sajol Ghosal from AMS-TAOS will explain the way from today’s relatively dumb lighting systems to smart sensor-driven lighting and how lighting paradigms will be broken by what Ghoshal calls cognitive lighting. A status report and an outlook for OLED lighting will be provided by Pars Mukish from market research company Yole Développement, and Christian May from Fraunhofer COMEDD will illuminate the technology for the next OLED generation.
OLED lighting will also take center stage in the presentation of Jörg Amelung from luminaire manufacturer Tridonic: He will share his insights into the technology of OLED modules for preofessional lighting applications. Further into the future of technology looks Johannes Edlinger from the University of Applied Science Vorarlberg with his presentation on Quantum Dots and their way from the lab to industrial production.
As usual, several presentations will deal with materials used in LEDs, in particular phosphors, as well as with architectures and technologies on the semiconductor level. Presentations on failure analysis, module technology, LED optics, packaging and a broad range of application aspects will round off the agenda. In the track "Driver and Controls, the discussion will focus on energy efficiency, longevity, driver aspects and smart lighting including signalling aspects.
