​Within the next 25 years, solid-state lighting will become the cornerstone of a revolution in lighting.

Incandescent and gas discharge lamps will be replaced by highly efficient organic and inorganic semiconductor devices. This progress relies on advances in material science, device physics, manufacturing, device packaging, and light management. This symposium therefore covers all aspects of solid state lighting, from new materials development and device physics to the design of efficient lighting optics.
