The submitted papers for PLDC 2017 offered a challenge to the Steering Committee.

More than 260 paper proposals were submitted for the 72 slots originally designated for the conference part of PLDC 2017 in Paris. According to the Paper Reviewing Committee 90% of the papers submitted were eligible for selection for the convention. It goes without saying that not all can be selected.

After careful study of the international Paper Reviewing Committee’s accumulated reviews, the PLDC Steering Committee made a decision in the interest of the lighting design community: PLDC 2017 will again comprise four tracks. A number of the highly rated paper submissions have been allocated to a track entitled Philosophy + Debate.
This track is not new in the sense that it has been introduced subsequent to the Call for Papers and has thus reduced potential speakers’ chances of being selected, but is to be seen as a response to the overwhelming number of high-quality (evaluated) paper submissions.

So altogether more than 80 papers will be presented, including a series of 20-minute research papers.

The response to the R&D track originally planned for PLDC 2017 did not meet the organiser’s expectations, neither in numbers nor in depth. The idea was to inspire companies to share the expertise gained through Research & Development with the overall lighting design community. The organisers explicitly did not wish to encourage the presentation of sales pitches. Of the over the 260 paper submissions received, only a handful were submitted for the planned R&D track. The organisers will not necessarily simply give up on this idea, but obviously more time is needed to define the intended outcome – and for that to be understood by those to whom the invitation is targeted.

One new part of the conference programme will be the final Round of The Challenge, a young desingers’ speaker competition.
