History of ALC
The ALC is formerly known as the lighting conference of CJK, which was an international academic conference jointly organized by the CIES, IEIJ, and KIIEE. The conference began in 2008, once a year, hosted by China, Japan and South Korea in rotation, so far (2016) it has been successfully held nine times.
With the continuous development and growth of China-Japan-Korea lighting conference, in order to better strengthen academic exchanges in the field of lighting in Asia, the organization committees of China, Japan, and Korea thoroughly discussed the proposal of ALC, and unanimously approved in 2016 to officially change the conference’s name to "Asian Lighting Conference". The 2017 Shanghai conference is officially designated as the "10th Asian Lighting Conference". And the 11th ALC will be held in Kobe in 2018.
