Welcome to CIE 2021

Light for Life - Living with Light

It is our pleasure to invite you to the CIE Midterm Meeting, which is hosted by the CIE National Committee of Malaysia (MyCIE) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The CIE Midterm Meeting includes the conference CIE 2021, which runs from  September 27 to 29, 2021. This three day conference brings together the CIE community and its stakeholders together to advance the science of light and lighting and the technical and organizational work of the CIE.

With strong technical and scientific foundations, the CIE is an independent, non-profit organization that serves its member countries and the global community. Originally formed in 1900 as the International Commission on Photometry (CIP), and restructured as the CIE in 1913, the Commission is globally accepted as representing the best authority on all aspects of light and lighting. The CIE is recognized by the International Commission for Weights and Measures (CIPM), the International Standardization Organization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as an international standardization body.

The broad theme of the CIE 2021 conference is “Light for Life – Living with Light”. We especially invite abstract submissions on the topics:

  • Light in Culture and Heritage;
  • Urban Lighting Light and Ecology;
  • Integrative Lighting;
  • Colour and Lighting in Virtual Reality; and
  • Horticultural Lighting.

Of course, we also invite submission on topics related to all of the CIE Divisions: Vision and Colour; Physical Measurement of Light and Radiation; Interior Environment and Lighting Design; Transportation and Exterior Applications; Photobiology and Photochemistry; and, Image Technology.

The conference presents the perfect opportunity for all interested in the arts and sciences of light and lighting, from science, engineering, design and industry, to come together to discuss their interests with like-minded professionals from the global lighting community.

In line with the current uncertainties associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this Midterm Meeting will be held completely online. For this online event MyCIE are partenring with a PCO to bring all participants the best online experience.
