The Lighting Council of Australia presents the LED Lighting Seminar Series as presented by Professor Georges Zissis, Head of Light and Matter Research Group at LaPlaCE (Laboratoire Plasma et Conversion d’Énergie) University of Toulouse
Solid state lighting is transforming the world’s lighting industry and will affect nearly all lighting applications. The Lighting Council Australia—the peak body for Australia’s lighting industry—has convened the LED Seminar Series in major capital cities at a particularly important time for lighting. Many cities in the world are moving—or contemplating the move—to LED street lighting. We are extremely fortunate to secure Professor Georges Zissis to lead the seminars. Professor Zissis is a renowned expert on solid state lighting systems, with particular expertise in their applications for road lighting. The seminars will be useful for lighting industry specialists, utilities, municipalities, town planners, facility managers, architects, engineers and other professionals with an interest in lighting.
Upcoming sessions include:
- Brisbane 17 February 2014
- Sydney 19 February 2014
