Invitation of the 8th Lighting Conference of China, Japan and Korea

Chair, Domestic Committee of the Lighting Conference of China, Japan and Korea,
Yoshitaka Kenmotsu

We really appreciate your contributions to the Lighting Conference of China, Japan and Korea. The domestic lighting societies of three eastern Asian countries made agreements to establish and hold the annual international conference on lighting science and engineering in 2007. The 1st conference was held in Beijing, China in 2008, and then the subsequent conferences have also been held in Japan and Korea. The conferences have provided the delegates the places to exchange the valuable information, as well as the chances to nourish the students and the young engineers by the earnest and fruitful discussions with veteran researchers and engineers.

In 2015, we will have the 8th conference on the campus of Kyoto Womenís University, Kyoto, Japan. Last year, we changed one-day conference to one-and-half-days conference to address the increasing number of presentations. Since the 3rd conference in Seoul, Korea, we have awarded the delegates who reported the distinguished advancements in the filed of lighting science and engineering, as well as encouraged the students who gave their presentations.

The present conference is titled, “Creating Comfortable Lighting Environment”, where all the delegates actively will talk about the future lighting environments which will be realized with the technological advancements of solid state lighting(SSL). We hope many delegates to join the conference and submit the papers to each domestic committee office.

12) Information on Kyoto

Kyoto is an old capital of Japan. The Emperor had lived in Kyoto until the 19th century. Then he moved to Tokyo. Kyoto has many traditional cultures. There are two reasons for this. Kyoto became the capital in the 8th century, since then has been the center of Japanese culture for a long time. And Kyoto could outlive during several wars. So we can still enjoy the many old buildings(shrines, temples, machiya, etc.), gardens and artworks. There are seventeen World Heritage sites in Kyoto. Kyoto has been a big city and has new aspect such as many modern buildings etc.
If you spend some time there, you will see many beautiful historic sites.
There are Sanjyu-sanngenndou, Tijyakuin, Myouhouin, Kiyomizudera, Kyoto National Museum, etc. located within walking distance of Kyoto Womenís University.
