3rd International LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS 2013)
Europe´s Foremost LED Lighting Technology Event 24 – 26 September 2013 in Bregenz, Austria
LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS) – Experts Present Their Most Recent Results in the Areas of LED and OLED Technologies
System performance and reliability
"The reliability of the LED-system is the most important issue of the current LED-luminaire technology and has a substantial impact on the determination of the maintenance factor which has to be defined and determined by the luminaire manufacturers before the LED-luminare installation can start in real LED-lighting projects" emphasized Prof. Tran Quoc Khanh, Technical University in Darmstadt. For this reason, the symposium will feature a number of lectures and a workshop that focus on this subject. One of them is the talk by Matteo Meneghini from the University of Padua titled “Degradation Mechanisms and Methods for Lifetime Extrapolation of LEDs”. Another interesting lecture will be “Long-Term Electrical, Optical and Thermal Behavior of LED Light Bulbs” by Laurent Massol from LED Engineering Development. In addition to that there will be the “LED Luminaire Design” workshop, presented by Cree.
Smart Lighting and Digitalization:
In an interview with Siegfried Luger in May, 2013, Franco Musiari, technical director of the Assodel organization said that he thought the new main trend is going in the direction of “Differentiation through Smart Lighting”. Ed van den Kieboom, the Conference director at Smart Lighting in Frankfurt mentioned, that the introduction of Solid-State-Lighting in the lighting industry will end up being digital. He also said that, through this, light management would become more efficient but at the same time would have to be adapted more and more to the needs of the buyer and user. With the correct light, optimal work and living conditions can be created that, in the long run, can even influence our health. Digital approaches are also given a lot of attention at the symposium. One of the talks on this subject will be given by Stefan Zudrell-Koch from Dialog Semiconductors titled “Digital Signal Processing Techniques in Retrofit Lamp Driver ICs”.
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 Steering 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 to all that, there will be two interactive tech-panels where attendees can discuss topics of the future in the area of LEDs and OLEDs. More information about all the symposium activities can be found at: www.LpS2013.com/program.
In addition to the symposium program, visitors can get first-hand information from internationally renowned companies who will be showing their newest developments and products at the ground-breaking exhibition. The Light Art project and dinner on a cruise ship on Lake Constance make the evening events something that shouldn’t be missed. Guests will be able to make contacts, discuss ideas and wind down to the sound of live music in a relaxed atmosphere.
