IntertechPira is pleased to announce the dates for the 1st installment of Ecosystems for Solid State Lighting. The launch of this visionary event will take place November 30-December 2, 2011 at the Washington Marriott in Washington, DC . Chaired by Kathryn Conway from LED Consulting and Dr. Makarand Chipalkatti from OSRAM Sylvania, Ecosystems for Solid State Lighting 2011 will provide an intersection for big-picture “system thinkers” in the information and lighting industries to brainstorm and learn how really maximize the opportunities that solid state lighting (SSL) technology offers.
“Lighting touches so many different parts of design. We’re just beginning to integrate new and existing technologies with all of the other components of a lighting ecosystem,” said Dr. Chipalkatti.
“We envision Ecosystems for Solid State Lighting 2011 as a launch point for companies, government, clean energy advocates and others to collaborate. Together we can plan how to link SSL to smart electrical grids, advanced transport systems, social networking, surveillance and security, industrial efficiency, and other forward-thinking initiatives,” added Kathryn M.Conway. "For this conference, we agree that it's time to get past simply replacing old light bulbs!"
Through approximately 18 expert presentations assessing market trends, technical development and application related advances, Ecosystems for Solid State Lighting 2011 will provide a new understanding of the diverse systems, their components and developing framework to achieve interoperability of devices and systems for SSL. The target audience includes advanced materials and systems manufacturers; computer systems, utilities, and information providers & facilitators; investors; architects and lighting designers, as well as policy-makers and government agencies and academics.
The conference will include one day of pre-conference seminars and workshops to allow for more in-depth coverage of issues and additional networking opportunities. Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are available.
Speaker recruitment for 2011 is now underway. To submit a topic for consideration, or to request more details, please contact Olga Adamovich at +1 207 781 9628.
