WORKSHOPS

WEDNESDAY 12 JUNE

12.00 – THINKING ABOUT UPGRADING YOUR MEMBERSHIP? - Chantal o'sullivan

Are you in the process of, or thinking of upgrading your membership? Do you have all the information you need to do so?

This workshop is aimed at assisting individuals to upgrade their ILP membership (AMILP, MILP) and follow the required process in order to obtain EngTech, IEng or Ceng registration through the Engineering Council.

The session will start with a presentation from Vice President Membership Development that will contain guidance on what you need to do, and where to find the information. There will then be an opportunity to ask questions and obtain one on one advice from those who have successfully upgraded and members of the ILP membership committee. Both Chantal O’Sullivan (ILP Membership Services Manager) and Graham Lucas (ILP Membership Committee) will also be on hand to field questions.


12.30 – Why write, how to do it well, and how by doing so you can change the conversation around lighting - NIC PATON

For anyone who is interested in writing for publication or just public notice – articles, research, blogs etc – and who may be interested in contributing to Lighting Journal in the future. The aim is to have an interactive discussion about the value of written communication, how to do it better, and how to get started. It’d be great if participants can bring along ideas that they feel might work within Lighting Journal


14.00 – INTERACTIVE LIGHTING SESSION - AN INTRODUCTION TO DMX CONTROL SYSTEMS - STEVEN EDWARDS, LDC DURHAM

Steve will cover the fundamentals of DMX control systems for architectural applications. Topics include network infrastructures and communication protocols, including a live demonstration. 


14.30 – Smart Cities (more than just a city): Unpicking the jargon and the options for Local Authorities and clients to create smart solutions not just cities - Alistair scott & kevin dugdale

This workshop will take a look at all the terminology often used to describe smart cities and what it all actually means, we will then take a look at what smart solutions might look like for some of the clients in the room and how to maximise  the opportunities smart solutions have to offer.

This is a must see workshop for anyone looking to get a better understanding of what smart cities really are, It will also go beyond the products and look at the architecture.

15.30
 – Harnessing the power of the cloud in street lighting luminaire selection - tony cook & kevin kelly

Luminaire selection for street & road lighting projects is becoming an increasingly difficult task, with manufacturers able to change lens distributions, number of LEDs, driver currents, added to variables such as column spacing, column height, offset and tilt angles. What is the optimal solution? Lighting Reality have solutions that can optimise on a single variable such as column spacing over a selection of luminaire photometric files, but if we add in different driver currents, column heights and LED configurations this becomes a slow and potentially labour-intensive process. Can Cloud Computing offer a solution? This workshop discusses how not only the power of Cloud computing, but also the availability of potential large cloud-based databases, could make the task of choosing the correct luminaire a much quicker and easier task.

Who should attend? Anyone who selects luminaires for outdoor lighting projects.

14.00 – Where now for local authority lighting departments? - NIC PATON & Liz Hudson

Come and join Lighting Journal editor Nic Paton and Carbon Reduction Technology’s Liz Hudson to reflect upon and discuss the findings of the ILP National Lighting Survey. Should we be worried about what it potentially says in regards to recruitment and retention of local authority lighting professionals? What, also, do ILP members think about its findings around dimming, part-night lighting and retrofitting and, indeed, the evolution of LED in our urban environment? This is intended to be an informal discussion – very little “talking at” – to discuss and reflect upon the key points of the ILP/Carbon Reduction Technology National Lighting Survey and what its potential ramifications are or might be for the industry.
