Light Pollution: Theory, Modelling, and Measurements

megantic

The first International conference on Light Pollution Theory,modelling and measurements (LPTMM) will take place at Smolenice, Slovak Republic in April 15-18, 2013.

This conference is more specifically oriented toward scientific and astronomical issues.

It will address themes concerning,

  • Theoretical concepts of modelling light pollution
  • Numerical tools and simulation experiments
  • Effects of atmospheric aerosols and obstacles on light pollution Impact of spectral characteristics of light sources and reflecting surfaces
  • Observational techniques, data, and products
  • Design and evaluation of dark sky friendly lighting technologies

The LPTMM-2013 conference is jointly organized by the Astronomical Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and the Cégep de Sherbrooke, Canada.

The study of light pollution is undergoing a renaissance due to development of high performance computers that can significantly reduce the time needed for more accurate numerical simulations.

Theoretical solutions, numerical modeling, and field campaigns represent diverse approaches to the analysis, prediction, and characterization of light pollution levels and behaviour. The meeting aim is to bring together experts in that field to discuss the current state of the art and to formulate new research directions.

The conference aim to facilitate a more intensive development in this field of research.

More informations about that meeting can be found on http://lptmm.org
