|1:00pm - 2:00pm||ANSI/IES TM-33: A New Standard for Luminaire Optical Data For the past three decades, the lighting industry has relied on two photometric data exchange formats for characterizing luminaires: IES LM-63-02 in North America and the ad hoc EULUMDAT in Europe. Today, it is becoming increasingly difficult for luminaire manufacturers, lighting designers and specifiers, and lighting design software companies to deal with the complexities of modern luminaires. A short list of issues includes: spectral power distributions, color-changing luminaires, color rendering indices, scotopic-photopic ratios, melanopic lumens, radiant intensity distributions, ultraviolet and infrared radiation sources, photon flux density and application-distance radiometry for horticultural luminaires, and multi-channel theatrical lighting. More than photometric data, the lighting industry needs an international standard for luminaire optical data.
In response to these issues, an international effort over two years has resulted in the development of ANSI/IES TM-33, Standard Format for the Electronic Transfer of Luminaire Optical Data. This document, currently in the final stages of publication, has been adopted by the Italian national standards organization as UNI 1603054, and has been provisionally accepted by the Brazilian (ABNT) and Spanish (UNE) national standards organizations. Further, the CIE is currently considering establishing a technical committee to maintain the document as a joint CIE/ISO standard.
This workshop will review the features of TM-33 / 1603054, with attention given to applications such as circadian, horticultural, and theatrical lighting.

|Lighting for Health and Energy Savings For over a decade, the LRC has been a leader in researching how light can be used to promote health and wellbeing. Now, many of the techniques developed by the LRC and others are being implemented in practice. This workshop provides an overview of this work, and includes topics such as circadian rhythms, circadian entrainment, using light to provide circadian stimulus, applications (e.g. offices, schools, senior living facilities, etc.), and the resources available for implementing these strategies. Additionally, the LRC is currently conducting a research project on how to provide health benefits while minimizing energy use, and this workshop includes a discussion of strategies for achieving both health benefits and energy savings.

|Advanced Lighting Control Systems (ALCS) Training Course For the first time this year, the DLC is offering a condensed version of its highly-rated Advanced Lighting Control Systems (ALCS) Training Program during the Stakeholder Meeting pre-conference. The course will start with an overview of the different types of ALCS, from traditional to new and innovative. The instructor will then compare the complexity and wiring requirements of each type while providing new tools for selecting the right system for a given customer and application. Though this version of the course will not include the hands-on training portion, through this course, participants will be equipped to explain to their customers the features and benefits that ALCS offer and how to configure them to maximize the benefit for any given situation.
The course will be held on Monday, July 9 from 1:30pm - 4:30pm ET and online registration is available to all Stakeholder Meeting attendees for an additional $50 fee. Please register for the training course SEPARATELY from your regular conference registration using the form linked here. Due to space constraints at the meeting venue, the training will be capped at the first 100 course registrants.
