International Symposium on the Science and Technology of Light Sources

JULY 11-16, 2010



The International Symposium on the Science and Technology of Light Sources has been held regularly since 1973 and provides a unique opportunity for the worldwide community of engineers and scientists from the lighting industry, research organisations and academia to meet, present and discuss their work on light source research and development.

The International Conference on White LEDs and Solid State Lighting held its inaugural meeting in Tokyo in 2007 with the 2nd due to be held in Taiwan in December 2009. The conferences aim to provide a forum for scientists, engineers and designers to discuss all aspects of fundamental and applied research on white LEDs and SSL (Solid State Lighting) in a stimulating and informed atmosphere.

For the first time, in the period from Sunday, July 11th to Friday, July 16th, 2010 the two conferences will be held jointly in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, on the campus of the Eindhoven University of Technology. The aim is to bring these two communities, which to date have evolved separately, into contact with each other. The LS community’s interests have reflected contemporary light source technology during its over 30 years history and this has resulted naturally in a growing, now significant, representation of SSL technologies (LED and OLED) in its programmes. In contrast, the WhiteLED and SSL conference community’s interests have, by definition, focused wholly on the rapidly growing white LED and OLED based SSL technologies.
