EXPERIENCING LIGHT 2012

EXPERIENCING LIGHT 2012 is an international two-day scientific conference for people interested in the effects of light and light design on human wellbeing. It approaches wellbeing in its broadest sense, including mood, emotions, subjective and objective health, comfort, atmosphere perception, productivity, and performance. It follows the successful Experiencing Light conference in 2009, and focusses on the psychological processes related to the perception of and exposure to both natural and artificial lighting. The goal is to bring together a multidisciplinary group of researchers and designers working in this domain so they can meet, share experiences, present research, and exchange ideas. EXPERIENCING LIGHT 2012 is organized by the HTI group.

The environments we live and work in are becoming increasingly technological. What is environmental psychology's status with regard to technological innovations? Are environmental psychologists sufficiently aware of and involved in developments such as, ambient intelligence, virtual reality, persuasive technology, and location aware services on mobile phones and the Internet?
