This year’s Holst Lecture, the 40th since 1977, will be given by Andrew B. Watson PhD. In his Holst Lecture he will reflect on his work as a Senior Scientist for Vision Research at NASA Ames Research Center. Dr. Watson will receive the prestigious Holst Memorial Lecture Award 2016 for his important contributions to vision research.
The Windows of visibility
In his Lecture ‘The Windows of Visibility’ dr. Watson will refer to the fact that we do not see the world as it is, but only the view that is admitted by the window of our visual sense. In his talk he will explore the many narrow windows of visibility through which we experience the visual world.
Through these limitations, the eye reduces the infinitely complex physics of reality to a finite limited sample of information that our brain can manage. Remarkably, understanding these limitations is also key to designing better visual display technology. Dr. Watson will illustrate this idea with examples from quality optimization of display and lighting systems.
The Holst Memorial Lecture and Symposium are organized by Philips Lighting Research and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
Symposium Quality of Light
While the Memorial Lecture by Andrew B. Watson will focus on achievements in vision research, the preceding Symposium will cover four topics, each for 30 minutes including Q&A.
Four eminent speakers, all leading academic and industrial professionals from different disciplines, will each address a specific aspect of light, ranging from consumer and entertainment lighting, horticulture, semantic lighting to virtual city planning and light rendering. In this way, the Symposium will address some of the many values light can offer.
Preceding the Holst Symposium, the TU/e’s Intelligent Lighting Institute (ILI) organizes its annual public outreach event ILIAD. Researchers connected to ILI will present current and upcoming research and innovation projects in Intelligent Lighting and its applications in Health and Well-being, focusing on the strategic partnership between TU/e and Philips Lighting. Poster presentations will be part of ILIAD 2016.

De Strategic Area Energy van de Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, Tilburg University en Eneco nodigen u op 14 november a.s. van harte uit voor een symposium met Craig Morris naar aanleiding van zijn spraakmakende boek Energy Democracy.
De Energiewende zette het energielandschap in Duitsland op zijn kop. In zijn boek Energy Democracy beschrijft journalist Craig Morris hoe deze omwenteling mogelijk werd door lokale en regionale energie-initiatieven. Lang vóór het besluit van de Duitse bondskanselier Angela Merkel om de kerncentrales te sluiten. Morris laat zien hoe de energietransitie een unieke kans biedt om de energiesector te democratiseren en gemeenschappen te versterken – in Duitsland, maar ook in andere landen en regio’s zoals Brabant.
Graig Morris (@PPchef) is geboren in de Verenigde Staten en woont sinds 1992 in Duitsland. Hij is de auteur van o.a. The Energy Switch (2006) en schrijft over de energietransitie op de bekende Energiewende Blog.

Already in its 3th year the Datacenter Forum is back in Stockholm at the Clarion Hotel Sign on the 9th November 2016!
The event will be attended by 300 of your colleagues from the Swedish datacenter sector
On the occasion of Professor Dan Ariely who will receive an honorary doctorate from Erasmus University Rotterdam on the university’s birthday (Dies Natalis), we are inviting you to a unique business seminar on the evening of Monday 7 November organised by Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University.
Dan Ariely will engage in an interactive discussion about how the principles of behavioural economics can help us gain insights in some of our irrational tendencies, specifically the mechanisms at work behind dishonest behaviour. This event offers you the exceptional opportunity to understand the issues companies face when it comes to morality and honesty, e.g. in client and supplier relationships. The implications of his research are far reaching and will help you to better understand financial crises, regulations, and day-to-day misbehaviours.
About Dan Ariely
Dan Ariely is the James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and is the founder of The Center for Advanced Hindsight and also the co-founder of BEworks. He is a most engaging expert in applying behavioural economics to business and policy. His experiments involve a wide range of topics associated with behavioural economics, such as dishonesty, money management, and decision-making in various industries. Ariely is the author of Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty, all bestsellers in The New York Times. He has a bi-weekly advice column in The Wall Street Journal called “Ask Ariely” and his TED talks have been watched more than seven million times. In 2013, Bloomberg recognised Dan as one of Top 50 most influential thinkers.

Imagine you live in 2030 and you want to travel a few hundred kilometers with your new iron-fueled car that does not emit any CO2. You insert a new cartridge with a few liters of porous micron-sized iron powder.
You drive the car and when driving, the iron powder is dispersed in air and the powder is burned in a hot turbulent flame transferring the iron powder into micron-sized rust-powder. Inside the iron-car the hot burnt gases are used fire a Stirling engine to drive the car. The burnt rust particles are stored in a separate compartment of the original cartridge and when returning home you bring the (heavier) cartridge back to the store, from where it is shipped to a central place where the rust is transferred back to micro-sized iron particles again using solar energy. Whether this vision of the future is real, will become clear in the upcoming EnergyDays event where we will explore the possibilities of Metal Fuels as a novel type of energy carrier.
For the third year the visitor of the ‘Het Klokgebouw’ can experience which ingenious designs arise when engineers (to be) of various disciplines use their knowledge and understanding for the sake of design. Technology knowledge and understanding of what the user would help, challenge and enrich.
