Interdisciplinary Summer School: Measuring Natural Illumination
20-24 July 2020
Chexbres (CH)

This is your opportunity to apply for the Interdisciplinary Summer School “Measuring Natural Illumination” organised by the Daylight Academy (20-24 July 2020). Using Horace Bénédict de Saussure’s cyanometer (1789) for measuring the colour of the sky as a starting point, you will develop an interdisciplinary understanding of measurement and characterisation of light in the natural environment.

Topics will include
- Measurement of natural illumination
- Perception of light and colour
- Effects of light on human physiology
- Understanding colour, light, illumination

This residential summer school combines lectures, practical workshops, an excursion and a student-led research project. The summer school is open to students at all levels, researchers and practitioners from all disciplines interested in measuring natural illumination.

To apply, please complete the application form detailing educational background, motivation and a sketch of a short research project to be completed during the summer school by the application deadline (28 February 2020).

Places are limited. There are no course and tuition fees. Accommodation and meals will be provided. Successful applicants will need to pay for their own travel.

Please note: The summer school starts the morning of Monday, 20 July, so participants would need to plan to arrive the evening of Sunday, 19 July.

For further questions and queries, please email Manuel Spitschan.
