A research methods workshop for PhD students of lighting, colour, daylight and related subjects
LumeNet is a research methods workshop for PhD research students studying lighting and related issues. It was established by Steve Fotios along with Jens Christoffersen of VELUX. There are annual events, focussing on daylight (the Academic Forum) and general lighting (LumeNet) in alternate years.
The aim is to raise discussion of research objectives and methodologies. To do this, students present their proposals to senior researchers in the field of lighting for critical review.
It’s coming home, it’s coming home, it’s coming…. Not football, but LumeNet is coming home as it returns to Sheffield in 2022. The very first LumeNet took place in Sheffield back in 2012, and we’re excited to host this vibrant and interesting PhD conference once again in the Steel City.
LumeNet will take place on the 6th and 7th September 2022. It will be followed on the 8th September by a CIE-UK research symposium that all LumeNet attendees are welcome to attend, with some also invited to present their research.
A number of leading lighting experts have already confirmed they will be reviewers at the LumeNet conference, including Professor Kevin Houser, Jens Christoffersen, John O’Hagan and Professor Steve Fotios.
If you’re a PhD student doing research related to lighting, put the LumeNet 2022 dates in your diary as you do not want to miss this valuable, free-to-attend conference. We expect this to be an in-person conference. However, if travel and other Covid-related restrictions are in place at the time of the conference it will become a fully online event.
