An international two-day scientific conference organized by the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) that brings together recent insights into the influence of light and lighting design on humans and will take place in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, on November 12 and 13, 2020. Following the previous conferences in 2009, 2012, and 2014, Experiencing Light 2020 will provide a state of the art overview of how daylight and electric light influence human experience, behavior, and physiology via visual and non-visual effects.

The conference provides an excellent opportunity for academics and practitioners with an interest in research, theory, technologies, design, and applications related to the effects of lighting on people to meet and hear about recent findings. Contributions will be submitted and peer-reviewed in an extended abstract format, and accepted submissions will be presented as talks or posters and published in the conference proceedings. More information about the submission dates and conference program will be available at the Experiencing Light website.
