About this Course
The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise.
Description: Have you ever thought of your phone or watch as a teammate? What about a lighting system? Or are you more apt to think of lighting controls as a foe? This presentation will explore how we can think about interaction between humans and lighting systems through the lens of human-machine teaming. Human-machine teaming research can serve as a useful guide for design and improved interaction with lighting systems. Join a human factors psychologist, lighting researcher, and lighting designer to consider how thinking of a lighting system as a teammate may change the way we design now and in the future.
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), is pleased to offer a special, five-part, free webinar series on “Big Questions” in the lighting industry today. Advanced lighting systems can provide improved occupant health and productivity, better control, increased use of data, all with more sustainable product design. At the same time, new capabilities raise a host of questions with significant energy and environmental implications. Lighting researchers tackle big questions, and this webinar series will share the latest perspectives from PNNL experts and partners in pursuit of the best answers.

Prof. Georges ZISSIS, PhD, SMIEE, Vice-Rector Toulouse 3 University (2020-23). Born in Athens in 1964, has graduated in 1986 from Physics department of University of Crete in general physics. He got his MSc and PhD in Plasma Science in 1987 and 1990 from Toulouse 3 University (France). He is today full Professor in Toulouse 3 University (France). His primary area of work is in the field of Light Systems Science and Technology. He is especially interested in the sustainable smart lighting systems; system and metrology issues for solid-state lighting systems; standardization and quality issues for light sources; impact of lighting to energy, environment, quality of life, health and security; illumination and lighting. He is director of “Light & Matter” research group of LAPLACE that enrols 20 researchers. He won in December 2006 the 1st Award of the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) Centenary Challenge for his work on mesopic vision standardization for urban lighting systems (in conjunction with IEEE, IET and the Observer). In 2009, he won the Energy Globe Award for France and he got the Fresnel Medal from the French Illuminating Engineering Society. He was President IEEE Industrial Application Society (2019-20), and President of the Power Electronics, Electronics, Optoelectronics and System section of the French National Council of Universities (2014-19). He initiated and he chairs the IEEE Smart Lighting Initiative under IEEE Future Directions umbrella.
