News & Events

The Council for Optical Radiation Measurements (CORM) and the US National Committee of CIE (USNC) solicits abstracts for oral presentations at their joint annual meeting and conference, to be held virtually

Monday, November 14, 2022 through Wednesday, November 16, 2022.

Due Date for Abstracts September 16, 2022

This is a call for abstracts in the areas of light, vision, optical properties of materials and metrology, including, but not limited to the following topics:

Current Research at the NMIs
Luke Sandilands, NRC Canada, chair

Research at National Metrology Institutes, international intercomparisons, new programs, emerging challenges, and improvements to services used by the optical radiation community.

• UV & IR Radiation - Measurements, Concerns & Applications
Rob Vest, NIST, chair

Metrology of UV and IR sources (e.g. lamps) and detectors, challenges in UV-C and UV germicidal source evaluation, and UV and IR measurements for specialized applications.

Advances and Applications in Spectrophotometry
Thomas Germer, NIST, chair

Measurement and applications of optical properties of materials, including hyperspectral and multispectral imaging, remote sensing, materials characterization, and optical metrology.

• LED Applications and Metrology
Jeff Hulett, Vektrex, chair

Spectral and electrical LED measurement and test methods, new LED sources especially in the UV and IR spectral regions, and specialized industrial applications.

• Light and Health: Measuring the Stimulus and Response
Andrea Wilkerson, PNNL, chair

Tools and methods for measuring light stimulus and response, including temporal light artifact, glare and ipRGC-mediated responses (circadian, neuroendocrine, and neurobehavioural).

• Vision & Color
Yoshi Ohno, NIST, chair

Color perception, color metrics, and advances in vision research.

Presentations will be 15-20 minutes. Abstracts should be 250 words or less.
Abstracts should be submitted to
