January 28–30, 2014
Hilton Tampa Downtown
Tampa, FL

In the same way that today's cell phone is more than just a phone, tomorrow's solid-state lighting will deliver much more than just light. As SSL products move to the mainstream, scientists and thought leaders are digging deeper and thinking more broadly about new form factors and innovative ways to utilize lighting more effectively. The end result will be increased market adoption—and greater energy savings.

Join DOE at the 11th annual SSL R&D workshop. This gathering of SSL R&D professionals is where industry, government, and academia meet to learn, share, and shape the future of lighting.

A not-to-be-missed event, where you can:

  • Connect with top researchers and thought leaders
  • Dissect the most complex challenges facing SSL today
  • Explore new ideas and approaches to drive significant technology leaps forward
  • Participate in shaping research agendas
