8th International Radiance Workshop

8th International Radiance Workshop

The 8th International Radiance Workshop was held at Harvard University, Graduate School of Design, from October 21 to 23 2009. The event was hosted by Christoph Reinhart and Kera Lagios. The International Radiance Workshops are annual gatherings of advanced users and developers of the Radiance (day)light simulation program. The 2009 workshop was preceded by a full day training session on High Dynamic Range Photography and Glare Analysis that was offered by Mehlika Inanici, Jan Wienold and Greg Ward. The workshop and training session were attended by about eighty participants including twenty-eight GSD students.
