The Society of Light and Lighting's Trotter Paterson Lecture was inaugurated in 1951. We are delighted to announce that the keynote speaker for the 2017 lecture will be Peter Boyce, Professor Emeritus at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Whilst at Rensselaer, Peter was Head of Human Factors and his research in to light and its effects on human beings is known throughout the industry. Peter is also the Technical Editor for the world renowned Lighting Research & Technology journal.
For many years, most interior lighting practice has been founded on two sets of metrics, photometry and colorimetry; one simple calculation method, the lumen method; and two objectives, ensuring good visual performance without visual discomfort. Today, these foundations are increasingly being questioned. Some of these questions arise from a greater understanding of the physiology of the eye and brain, others arise from problems and opportunities presented by solid state lighting and yet others arise from ambitions to expand the role light plays in people's lives.
This lecture will explore the nature of these questions, the reasoning behind them and suggest what the answers to these questions should be.
