GRADUATE STUDENTS: Connect with top researchers and industry thought leaders February 1–4 to show your work!
Since 2003, the DOE Lighting R&D Workshop has drawn the best and brightest in the industry to share the latest on lighting technology advances. And each year, the popular poster session offers one-on-one interaction between presenters and attendees to network, exchange ideas, and help accelerate lighting innovations.
The 2021 Lighting R&D Workshop will be a free virtual event, and the poster session will remain a cornerstone for robust discussion among researchers.
Students are invited to submit abstracts to be considered for the poster competition. Abstracts should highlight work to shape the future of lighting, which may also include unique luminaire or design concepts that address a problem with today’s lighting solutions.
Two Grand Prize Winners will be selected to give a presentation of their work during the workshop and to participate in the virtual poster session on Tuesday, February 2. Honorable Mentions will be selected to participate in the virtual poster session.
Check out the full competition details for participation criteria, submission instructions, and other important information. Submissions due Friday, December 4.

“Talking about [my] work helped solidify future directions and also helped me establish contacts with people in industry, a few of which pioneered the work I was presenting.” -- Clayton Cozzan, 2017 winner
"I enjoyed the opportunity to talk with a variety of people about my research. Posters are a great way to meet people at a conference, and I think it was a great way to help us students meet people from industry, including people I probably wouldn't have approached otherwise.” -- Stacy Kowsz, 2016 winner
