Welcome to ALC 2019,the 12th Asia Lighting Conference.

Over 10 years, we have contributed to the development of lighting science and its industries by leading this conference. The 12th ALC will be held at Hotel Inter-Burgo, Daegu, Korea during Aug. 22nd to 23rd, 2019 (supported by Yeungnam University). Daegu is an attractive and traditional city, and 3rd largest city in Korea located in the east-southern area of Korea. We will have experience, excitement and excursions in Daegu and Kyungjoo where is a historic area that has inherited the culture of old Silla and Gaya.

ALC was formerly known as the Lighting Conference of China, Japan, and Korea (CJK). In 2017, we have changed and expanded our name to “ALC (Asia Lighting Conference)”. The 12th ALC will become the third conference after the title of the conference was changed. I wish our conference will become more widely and broadly in Asia. In this year, we will lead the conference theme of Connected Society through Advanced Lighting. We hope to keep abreast of advanced technology of connected lighting in the society where we live. Thus, in ALC 2019, we expect to have improvement of both quantity and quality of papers, presentations, and posters not only in academics and industries, but also in lighting design fields. Therefore, we expect that the lighting science and design will be more developed and having further discussion and study all fields of lighting at the conference. In this conference, we invite Dr. Mariana Figueiro, Director of Lighting Research Center at RPI (Unite States) as a key-note speaker. We will enjoy her speech regarding the most updated connected society through advanced lighting.

As we have changed the conference name from CJK lighting conference to Asian Lighting conference, we encourage to attend from various territories in Asia. We always wish to share and discuss the lighting studies and industries with people from diverse countries.

We always open to listen to any opinions about our conference. Feel free to contact us and give your opinions and experience about our conference.
Thank you very much.
