Seek Submissions for Third Lighting Poster Session

Now is the time to submit ideas for the Lighting Commission's third Poster Session for the 2015 Annual Conference & Stage Expo. The deadline to submit abstracts is November 15.

Poster Sessions let lighting designers, technicians, educators, and students share information that is not well known or perhaps of their own invention. This may include a new solution to an old problem, a new problem and its solution, a classroom or management technique, or the results of research. In 2014, participation in the session was bursting at the seams and introduced refreshing ideas such as creating light plots with Origami, ways of visualizing using a combination of model lighting with computer rendering, and a new photographic essay on light.

Poster presentations are widely accepted as meeting the requirements for scholarly publication since all submissions are blind juried by the Lighting Commission Poster Selection Committee. Ideas must be presented in the form of an abstract, no more than 200 words typed. The poster image and handout will be due February 9. Instructions for submitting a proposal are here.
