Lighting Day (November 7th)

10:00 Welcome
Are Røysamb
University of South-Eastern Norway, National Centre for Optics, Vision and Eye Care, Department of Optometry, Radiography and Lighting Design, Kongsberg, Norway.

10:05 What elderly people don’t see while driving on a road with (what lighting professionals consider as) good lighting
Wout van Bommel
Independent Lighting Consultant, Netherlands

10:50 Optimizing lighting of rural roads and protected areas: a complex dilemma.
Antonio Peña García
University of Granada, Spain

11:45: Lunch in Café Haspa
Visit Exhibits on the 2nd floor.

12:30 Personalized light design
Myriam Aries
Jönköping University, Sweden

13:15 The science and practice behind design for darkness strategies: collaborations between scientists, lighting designers, municipalities and industry.

14:30–16:00 Workshop: Lights on campus Kongsberg
Sylvia Pont
π-lab (Perceptual Intelligence lab), Delft University of Technology, Netherlands.

In teams we will develop lighting concepts for several locations around the campus. When it is dark, we will demonstrate the concepts using "rapid prototyping” techniques, one concept at a time, so that everyone can experience all concepts “live” to see the light.

20:00 Outdoor demonstration: Lights on campus Kongsberg
Open to the public. Meet outside Krona on the 3rd floor for a guided tour.

Glasses in classes — a scheme for schools to have extra pairs of spectacles to improve vision and academic achievement — will soon roll out at a national level in the UK. There is every reason to argue that Norway should adopt a similar scheme.
