Welcome to CIE 2018


Dear Colleagues,

CIE is pleased to invite you to the first conference of the new CIE Topical Conference series, “CIE 2018 Smart Lighting” and associated tutorials on “Colour Vision and Healthful Lighting”, which will be held from April 24-28, 2018 in Taipei and hosted by the CIE Associate National Committee of Chinese Taipei.

The CIE Topical Conference series is the successor to the CIE Lighting Quality and Energy Efficiency conference series, which ran from 2010 to 2016. The CIE Topical Conference provides forum for discussions on new research and educational opportunities in focused topics in general lighting or other topics related to CIE Divisions. The focus topics  of these conferences should reflect a strong interest and need in the region as well as general international needs for education,research and discussion. The conference acts as a gathering of experts and learners from all over the world as well as from the region, in order that existing synergies can be developed further and new connections begun.

This first conference will focus on Smart Lighting, an area that is expected to bring significant energy savings and many other benefits. This topic needs scientific and technical inputs in order to progress development of technologies with confidence in regards to lighting quality, comfort, and safety. We hope to hear many ideas and developments and discover what CIE can do to aid future progress on this topic.

Associated with the conference there will be tutorial workshops on “Colour Vision”, “Road Lighting” and “Healthful Lighting”, these will introduce fundamentals and facilitate discussions on future research needs in these important areas.

Well-known local manufacturers maintain the second largest share of global LED chips production, and the entire local supply chain remains a world leader in the LED industry. Taipei is an easy living city with metro system, Chinese Cuisine, and famous sightseeing places like Taipei 101, National Palace Museum, Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall, etc.
