Technical University Eindhoven, 10-11 November 2020
Organised in conjunction with Experiencing Light

LumeNet 2020



May 2020 update.
Due to current restrictions on travel and close contact Experiencing Light has been postponed for 12 months. LumeNet2020 will still take place over the same dates: if we are not able to meet in person, we will hold an online meeting.


Conferences usually want to hear about your important findings: LumeNet is a forum for discussing how you arrive at those conclusions, such as the experimental procedure you intend to use, how this might be improved, and to identify important issues worthy of study. You will therefore be invited to present your research in order to gain critical feedback – the schedule will allow time for each student’s work to be discussed in depth by other students and by an invited panel of senior researchers. For 2020, the reviewers will include Yvonne de Kort, Karin Smolders, Steve Fotios, Marilyne Andersen,... and others to be announced. These reviewers have expertise in different domains of lighting research as well as extensive experience of experimental work. Their feedback will help to improve your research and publication of that research. In this edition of LumeNet, review sessions with students will be preceded by lectures from the LumeNet reviewers on lighting, photometry, lighting design, as well as visual and non-visual effects of lighting on humans.

LumeNet is free to attend.

You will be asked to submit an abstract for the abstracts booklet, to give 3-minute project overview to the whole group, and in small groups to give a 10 minute presentation of your project: the reasons why the work is needed, the objectives, and the proposed methods.


Please send an email to the conference account Lumenet2020@tue.nl with the subject “Registration [your name]”.

In the email please give:

  • Your name
  • Your topic
  • Your status (1st year, 2nd year ……)
  • Your university and department
  • Your supervisor(s)

To ensure that each student has sufficient time for discussion of their work, attendance will be limited. Nearer the event we will ask you to send in a two-page abstract which will be printed and shared at the meeting, and will send information about accommodation and travel. We would encourage you to attend also the Experiencing Light 2020 conference (November 12th and 13th, Eindhoven), but please register for that event separately.
