The IALD has issued the call for presentations for its 2012 Enlighten Americas conference to be held Oct. 11-13, 2012, in Vancouver. The deadline for submissions is Jan. 9, 2012. The conference theme, Speaking of Light, “reflects a need for the architectural lighting design community to refocus on those important discussions on the evolving nature of the art and science of architectural lighting design.” Although the conference will follow the same three-track system that has been employed at past Enlighten gatherings, the tracks have been renamed under the headings: Art, Science, and Professional Tools.
