LumeNet 2024


LumeNet is a PhD research methods workshop for Ph.D. students with a thesis about lighting and related topics. It provides Ph.D. students an opportunity to present their work to an invited panel of leading scientific experts, discuss it, and receive insights for further development of their project. The aim is to raise discussion of research objectives and methodologies for Ph.D. students.

The next LumeNet workshop is on September 5-6, 2024,  hosted at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The main subjects of the LumeNet Workshop 2024 are:
