Manens-Tifs, in collaboration with EURAC Research, is pleased to host the 15th Annual International Radiance Workshop from Monday, August 29th to Wednesday, August 31th  2016 at Manens-Tifs headquarters, located in Padua (Italy).

With a long tradition of gathering academics, consultants and anyone interested in lighting related subjects using Radiance software, this event is a great opportunity to learn and exchanging ideas.

Attendees are invited to share examples of work they have performed using Radiance, or that is in progress, in a prepared 30-minutes presentation. Come to share your knowledge and/or learn about the latest Radiance features, developments, and opportunities to apply Radiance in your professional practice. Connect with enthusiasts from around the world who apply Radiance in research,  lighting design, daylighting, animation, simulation, and rendering activities.

If you are interested in presenting your work, which is highly encouraged, please propose a short abstract (300 words or less). Separate proposals from a single presenter on more than one topic or project are acceptable. Presentations will be made available after the workshop on the web.

Registration is open from May 1st to July 31st, 2016. Presenters will receive a €50 discount on their registration fee, students are entitled to a 50% discount.
