The present photometric system was adopted 75 years ago by the CIE at its Session in Geneva.

The CIE Symposium will commemorate this anniversary in Budapest, Hungary, between 30 September – 2 October, 1999.

Invited papers are intended to review the system of photometry, put it in proper perspective from the point of view of modern vision knowledge and legal metrology, discuss its merits and short comings as seen by lamp manufacturers and the indoor and outdoor lighting practitioners.

Main emphasis will be laid not on the past 75 years but on what we can learn from this period, and what should be done to develop photometry into a system that can serve lighting engineering well for the next 75 years.

Post-deadline posters can be submitted till 15 July, 1999


Registration fee: US$ 200,-.

Separate Registration Form will be sent to those who return this Registration Form.

Deadline for registration is 15 July 1999.
