    James Poore is the founder and creative director of JPLD and has been working in the events and production industry since 1997, and in the architectural field, specialising in lighting design, since 2000. Over the years he has enjoyed working on an eclectic range of lighting schemes and projects across the world. He is a member of the SLL, CIBSE and the ILP where he sits on the education committee. He is also a fellow of the RSA.

    Arup has conducted a pilot study at its London office into the behavioural effects of dynamic spectrally tunable lighting. This presentation will look at the experiment designed to test whether dynamic sculpting of the light spectra in indoor environments, either to mimic natural daylight changes or achieve particular levels of non-visual vs visual stimulation, may elicit different biological and behavioural effects.

  3. Workplace and Wellbeing

    To be successful, a lighting installation has to satisfy the people who use it. To do this lighting that makes people’s tasks visually easy, without causing discomfort, is required. Today lighting also has to contribute to a healthy and attractive environment. Peter Boyce will identify lighting conditions that achieve these aims.

    Getting the daylighting right in workplaces has never been more important. We know that daylight is an essential component of health and wellbeing. But it’s not as simple as more daylight is better, because direct sunlight can also have negative consequences, such as glare and overheating. Careful daylighting and shading design are crucial.

  6. Workplace and Wellbeing

    The new Deloitte HQ in London redefined the workplace for the firm’s people and clients. The aim was to reflect on people’s needs and working patterns, offering up to 40 different working environments within the building, both promoting interactivity and allowing privacy. Use of light was a crucial element in delivering this ambitious goal.

    Lighting for health and wellbeing, beyond "vision", is an emerging field of science and technology where full spectrum light sources can play a major role. There is an urgent need to develop metrics beyond traditional photometry and colorimetry (that are derived from 1924 and 1931 standards). Photometry and colorimetry are solely focused on the visual aspects of lighting, not considering the non-visual stimulus and potential effects for health and wellbeing. Energy evaluation is particularly critical in this field. The lumen is not appropriate for this purpose, and therefore the lumen/watt is not be a valid unit anymore. New metric proposals will be discussed.
  10. Workplace and Wellbeing

    DaeWha Kang and Dr Marcella Ucci will talk about their work at the Mitie headquarters, where they created an immersive space based on people’s innate need for connection with nature. Using natural materials together with circadian and natural light, a special working environment was created, and a  research study monitored and measured its impacts
    on worker wellbeing.

  11. Workplace and Wellbeing

    What are the real benefits of so-called human-centric lighting? We look at its acceptance and implementation, and current views.

  12. Workplace and Wellbeing

    ‘We believe we’re ready to go’ with implementing human-centric lighting in the workplace, says leading scientist Mark Rea of the Lighting Research Center in New York. But many experts and organisations, including the Society of Light and Lighting, urge caution and believe that more studies are needed before we can start deploying the technology. So
    who’s right? Our panel of experts debate the issues.

    Advances in intelligent wireless lighting control and connected lighting platforms are changing the lighting game. Lighting control is no longer stand-alone but a key enabler of whole building intelligence. In this session, you'll hear the specifiers can design these next-generation solutions. You'll also get a behind-the-scenes look at the design decisions in a real-world Bluetooth mesh implementation

    BS 5266 recognises that an emergency lighting system should be designed to work for you and your business needs. At a very early stage, a consultation should be arranged between all interested parties' to make that happen. As 'responsible person', find out who those interested parties are, your role in it and what you need to keep doing to keep your emergency lighting system compliant.
  11. Emergency Lighting
    Re-frame emergency lighting as part of a bigger picture by understanding how people respond in fire emergencies, why they do what they do and what external factors ' including visual cues ' affect their response.

  8. The Illuminated City
    In recent years, lighting professionals creating schemes for the urban environment have moved from a ‘city beautification’ approach to one based on putting people first. But do we really know what ‘lighting for people’ really means? And why isn’t the research applied in practice? Our panel looks at the issues.

    The life of our cities after dark is one element of the urbanism challenge, but one that needs addressing in a wider social, economic and environmental context.
  10. The Illuminated City
    Our ancestors stopped hunting mammoths, shared berries and deloused each other when it got dark. But time has moved on, our life styles have changed (for most of us) and the urban landscape is rapidly developing resulting in a ‘human’ desire for night time activity. As a consequence, we are turning night into day through the introduction of artificial lighting. Lighting is so easy to do and so easy to get wrong. Especially in terms of over lighting and obtrusive light to the environment and the natural habitat. Lee discusses light pollution, law, criteria, mitigation, assessment and sliding elephants…

    Lighting has the potential to be the powered communication backbone for the smart city and with the right sensors, opens up opportunities for a host of data-based services. However, the widespread deployment of the technologies present a variety of challenges.
  2. Smart Spaces
    The installation of connected lighting in the home needs to be simple. End-user customers need to understand not only how it works, but also, how (and why) it communicates with “the cloud”, the advantages of cloud controlled lighting, a word about the limitations (smart does not mean almighty) and most importantly, some guidance on how to (smartly) use new capabilities like CCT and RGB(W) tuning.

    With data now recognised as the new oil, businesses are continually seeking new ways to embrace data-providing technology. It helps them to gain better insights and so deliver actionable intelligence on how to manage buildings, assets and resources more effectively and efficiently.

    A smart space will be constructed from any number of IoT building blocks but it needs to be built on a scaleable, secure and resilient communication backbone. Smart lighting delivers this foundation, providing the infrastructure and data backhaul for the many IoT sensors and actuators that are deployed in an adaptive smart building ecosystem.

    Leveraging the scaleability of the ecosystem will provide masses of data, enabling data fusion, data science and artificial intelligence that realise significant value, reducing costs, improving availability and uptime, ensuring compliance and enhancing stakeholder experiences.

    So lighting is just the beginning and a cornerstone for the future.... Smart lighting enabling smart spaces of tomorrow.

    Good things happen when the ubiquity of lighting meets the ubiquity of Bluetooth. The potential of achieving interoperability means that lighting networks can encompass multiple vendors, control devices, even connectivity protocols. This provides tremendous flexibility to customers in creating a “future-proof” control infrastructure that can also extend beyond lighting, to serve as a natural platform for a range of valuable Bluetooth enabled services, including asset tracking, wayfinding, and point-of-interest information solutions. Learn how Bluetooth is helping achieve this level of interoperability in an actual demonstration at McWong in Sacramento, California, and discover why lighting as a platform is emerging as a model for deploying additional services and facilitating ‘beyond lighting’ capabilities that increase the value of your commercial lighting infrastructure.
