Call for Papers 2018 closed

Call for Papers closed

The seventh Professional Lighting Design Convention will be held in Singapore/SG from 25. to 27. October, 2018. The Convention comprises a two-day conference with Keynote Speakers, presented papers, self-running poster presentations, a manufacturers’ exhibition, social and cultural evening events, organised moderated discussions, Experience Rooms, excursions, and a Gala Dinner. Pre-convention meetings prior to the conference will be dedicated to the further pursuit of the recognition of the profession and include sessions for educators and researchers, as well as discussion and debate on professional issues.

The conference format has been adjusted for the Singapore edition. There will be two tracks running per day with four topics in total: Professional Practice Issues, Hospitality Lighting, IoDT – Internet of Design Things and Experiental Environments.

As an addition to the conference papers, the organisers will again offer Experience Rooms / Spaces. These rooms will invite and encourage attendees to actively experience light (and darkness) through different topics of interest to gain first-hand information, benefit educationally, and add to their personal and professional values and preferences when it comes to light and space. Proposed Experience Rooms will also need to go through the Call for Papers and be evaluated by the independent paper reviewing committee.

All submissions will be blind-reviewed by three independent lighting experts and professionals from the lighting design community.

The Call for Papers for PLDC 2018 is now closed. The Call for Papers for PLDC 2019 will open in late summer 2018.
The final list of speakers and topics will be published early in 2018.
