July 21, 2011 — Strategies in Light 2012 will take place February 7-9 in Santa Clara, CA. The Strategies in Light Advisory Board seeks abstracts for the conference, which is themed "The Booming LED Market."
The 2012 Strategies in Light Advisory Board will choose papers that appeal to the conference audience, offer strong technical content without an overt commercial sell, and have an immediate LED industry relevance.
Strategies in Light Conference attendees include LED buyers, lighting designers, corporate R&D, light system designers, product engineers, technical management, sales, marketing and financial analysts.
The call for papers is open through Monday, August 1. Abstracts should be 100-300 words, and the work should not be appearing at other LED-related conferences. Abstracts should be submitted (English language only please) via the online abstract submittal form: http://forms.events.pennnet.com/fl/forms/sil/online_abstract_main.cfm
Please note: In submitting an abstract you are indicating your availability and willingness to attend and present a paper at Strategies in Light 2012, if selected, and to comply with all deadlines. Please ensure that the speaker and author details you are providing when submitting your abstract are correct as these will be used for pre-event marketing purposes.
