For its 10th anniversary, the tenth Strategies in Light conference features a separate lighting track aimed at lighting designers, specifiers and architects. The focus of this special track will be to address the many issues associated with the use of LEDs in lighting that are of concern to the lighting community.

In conjunction with the lighting track, the conference will offer two new tutorials on LEDs:
    - LED Fundamentals for Lighting Designers and Architects
    - Specifying LED Lighting Fixtures: What Lighting Designers and Specifiers Need to Know

These tutorials will be in addition to pre-conference workshops on standards for solid-state lighting, intellectual property, LED test and measurement, and selecting drivers for LEDs. Featured speakers for the lighting track include James Benya, Principal, Benya Lighting Design and Michael Siminovitch, Director, California Lighting Technology Center.

Besides, Strategies in Light 2009 will provide insight into the rapidly developing markets for LED lighting, backlights for LED displays, and automotive headlamps, as well as other major trends in applications, industry structure, government policies, markets, products, and technologies that will affect the industry’s future.
