2011 International Radiance Workshop

Announcing the 2011 International Radiance Workshop

We are still working on the details, and to get a website up for registration. In the meantime, I want to share what details we have so everyone can start to arrange travel. I will send another notification when the registration website is ready to accept registration & payment.

Dates
Wednesday, August 24 - Seminar day
Thursday, August 25 - Workshop Day 1
Friday, August 26 - Workshop Day 2

We're still planning the seminar day, though I can fill you in on some specifics. John Mardaljevic will present a crash course on the Radiance ambient calculation. We will also have a few presentations covering measurement and simulation of complex fenestration from Greg Ward, Jacob Jonsson and Peter Apian-Bennewitz. Someone from LBNL will present a preview of the complex glazing database (database for optical properties of non-specular fenestration). There will also be a presentation covering a new Radiance material primitive!

Call for Presenters
As always, we rely on attendees to present their own work during the two-day workshop. We are now officially opening the call for presenters. Please email presentation abstracts to Andy McNeil ([email protected]) by Wednesday August 3.

Registration Fee
We are working to get prices for everything. In the meantime, I can tell you that the fee will be less than $300 for all three days. Presenters will receive a small discount. We'll announce the official cost probably when the registration website is launched.

Housing
We've reserved a small block of rooms at the Berkeley Lab Guest House (http://www.berkeleylabguesthouse.berkeley.edu/). The guest house is located on the lab property and is conveniently located for the workshop. However it is a bit removed from restaurants and nightlife of Berkeley. The lab provides a shuttle bus to downtown Berkeley during normal lab hours. A taxi service is available after lab hours.

We also recommend the following two hotels:
- Hotel Shattuck Plaza - 1 block from the BART and 3 blocks away from the shuttle up to the lab, a short walk to the restaurants of gourmet ghetto. http://www.hotelshattuckplaza.com/index.cfm
- Hotel Durant - a 20 minute a walk from BART. A 12 minute walk across UC campus to the LBL shuttle bus. http://www.jdvhotels.com/hotels/sanfranciscoeastbay/durant

We look forward to hosting everyone here in Berkeley!

Is there any chance that there will be beginner level classes/workshops available?

Hi Sandy,

I'll start by saying that we are very welcoming of beginners at the workshop. We haven't planned a beginners tutorial during the seminars but beginners will probably find John's seminar presentation on the ambient calculation parameters (-ab -ad -ar -aa etc) to be helpful.

The presentations during the workshop are given by attendees. At this point there is no way to know what they will be. Presentations at past workshops have cover a range of topics.

When I was a beginner I found the workshop to be inspiring. While much of the detail was beyond my capability, conceptually it was all very interesting. I also found the time between presentations, (coffee breaks, lunch and workshop dinner) when I had the opportunity to talk with more experienced users to be particularly valuable for beg. The workshops provided the motivation I needed persevere.

If you are a complete beginner I'd suggest working through tutorials before the workshop. But if your using Radiance now, you're probably know enough to find value in the workshop.

Best,
Andy

PS - Here's a great presentation from Rob at his second workshop (after attending the workshop a year before as self-described newbie). http://www.radiance-online.org/radiance-workshop2/cd/Guglielmetti/abstract.html Hopefully well have some presentations from relatively new users this year too.
