Artificial Light at Night Conference
Artificial light at night (ALAN) is a term that describes the effects of artificial light at night on ecology.
In 2013, the first ALAN conference took place in Berlin/Germany. Following this, annual conference locations were in Leicester, UK; Sherbrooke, Canada; Cluj-Napoca, Romania; and Salt Lake City, USA. The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in two online conferences.
The ALAN conference series examines all aspects of artificial light at night. The broad scope of the conference includes how light is produced (e.g. technologies, industry, and lighting design), where it is present (e.g. remote sensing); what effects it has on humans and the environment (e.g. ecology); how it is perceived by the public (e.g. perceptions of safety and security), and how the benefits and detriments of lighting may be better balanced, controlled and managed by regulations.
The 8th International Artificial Light at Night (ALAN) Conference will be on Aug. 10 – 13, 2023, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.GET DETAILS
