Scientific Information


Following the Covid19 situation, our objective is have a face-to-face conference on the announced dates. If the situation deteriorates significantly or the conditions no longer allow us to keep the face-to-face meeting, we will inform the participants in June 2021 about our decision.


eeadl_logoThe previous ten International Conference on Energy Efficiency in Domestic Appliances and Lighting (EEDAL) conferences have been very successful in attracting an international audience. EEDAL has established itself as an influential and recognized international event to discuss the progress achieved and latest developments in technologies, behavioral aspects and policies. EEDAL is the venue to establish new collaborations and synergies and build international partnerships among stakeholders dealing with residential energy consumption equipment, metering and lighting (manufacturers, consumers, governments, utilities, international organizations, academia and research).



The International Symposium on Science and Technology of Lighting (LS-series) has been held regularly since 1975 and provides a unique forum for the worldwide community of engineers and scientists from the lighting industry, research organizations and academia to share and exchange the latest progress on Science and Technology of Lighting. LS has a more than 40-year history since the 1st LS (LS:1) in 1975 in Loughborough, United Kingdom, and 2021 will be the 17th time that this event will recombine.

In 2021, November 8th to 10th, for the first time, the two conferences will be held jointly in Toulouse, France, on the campus of Toulouse 3 University. The aim is to bring the two communities in contact: the LS community, which has been active in lighting systems, expanding to smart and human-centric lighting, and the EEDAL community, which has been focusing on among others in energy efficiency for domestic appliances including lighting. This joint event will provide a unique forum to discuss and debate the latest developments in energy and environmental impact of residential appliances and lighting, heating and cooling equipment, electronics, smart appliances, smart meters, consumer behavior, the policies and programs both adopted and planned. This interaction will give birth, for sure, to new successful collaborations.

For LS conference, all accepted papers will be listed by IEEE Xplore® which enables papers to be referenced with an individual DOI number visible by SCOPUS, ISI, ORCHID…. Extended papers will be eligible for submission, after the conference, to IEEE Transactions of Industry Applications or to a MDPI special issue.
