Holst Memorial Lecture 2016

The Holst Memorial Lecture and Symposium are organized by Philips Lighting Research and the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e). This year’s Holst Lecture, the 40th since 1977, was given by Andrew B. Watson PhD. In his Holst Lecture he reflected on his work as a Senior Scientist for Vision Research at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field. Dr. Watson  received the Holst Memorial Lecture Award 2016 for his important contributions to vision research.

Symposium Quality of Light

While the Memorial Lecture by Andrew B. Watson will focus on achievements in vision research, the preceding Symposium will cover four topics, each for 30 minutes including Q&A. Four eminent speakers, all leading academic and industrial professionals from different disciplines, will each address a specific aspect of light, ranging from consumer and entertainment lighting, horticulture, semantic lighting to virtual city planning and light rendering. In this way, the Symposium will address some of the many values light can offer.

ILIAD 16 - Outreach Event Intelligent Lighting Institute

Preceding the Holst Symposium, the TU/e Intelligent Lighting Institute (ILI) organizes its annual public outreach event ILIAD. Researchers connected to ILI will present current and upcoming research and innovation projects in Intelligent Lighting and its applications in Health and Well-being, focusing on the strategic partnership between TU/e and Philips Lighting.
