LumeNet is a research methods workshop for PhD students of lighting, colour, daylight and related subjects.

Conferences usually want to hear about your important findings: LumeNet is a forum for discussing how you arrive at those conclusions, such as the experimental procedure you intend to use, how this might be improved, and to identify important issues worthy of study. You will therefore be invited to present your research in order to gain critical feedback – the schedule will allow time for each students’ work to be discussed in depth by other students and by an invited panel of senior researchers.

For 2018, the reviewers will include Jennifer Veitch, Werner Osterhaus, Kevin Houser and John Mardaljevic, and others to be announced. These reviewers have extensive experience of experimental work and are editors of some of the key journals for lighting research. Their feedback will help to improve your research and publication of that research.

LumeNet is free to attend

You will be asked to submit an abstract for the abstracts booklet, to give 3-minute project overview to the whole group, and in small groups to give a 10 minute presentation of your project: the reasons why the work is needed, the objectives, and the proposed methods.


Please send an email to the conference account ( with the subject “Registration [your name]”. In the email please give:

  • Your name
  • Your topic
  • Your status (1st year, 2nd year ……)
  • Your university and department
  • Your supervisor(s)

To ensure that each student has sufficient time for discussion of their work, attendance will be limited to approximately 40. Nearer the event we will ask you to send in a two-page abstract which will be printed and shared at the meeting, and will send information about accommodation and travel.

We would encourage you to attend also the CIE Research Methods Tutorial (13/14 August 2017, Copenhagen) but please register for that event separately.

Aalborg University, Copenhagen
