A mini-conference is to be held in Berlin at which the 18 winners from Round II each present a 20-minute paper on their topic. The programme will also include professional papers given by the coaches and F2F talks as well as social and networking activities.
Day Two will include a specific number of 15-minute slots for early career researchers (pre-docs). This is not part of the speaker competition, but one step towards bridging the gap between the research community and the lighting design community.
The conference will be organised by VIA Events. The conference event is a warm-up gathering for PLDC 2019.
Round III will be held from 31. January to 1. February, 2019 at AEDES Architekturforum, Berlin/DE. Registration for the mini-conference will open shortly.
