Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lighting technologies have been highly developed over the last decade, rapidly resulting in substantial improvement of energy efficiency of lighting solutions. The new technologies that have emerged (LED sources, dedicated optical and control systems) are now commonly used in interior and exterior lighting and in other applications. Research on new devices and solutions in terms of the effectiveness of their use for lighting prevails in contemporary illumination engineering nowadays. This is the focus of the series of conferences on lighting technology and the associated forum, dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and networking. The XXIXth conference (KKO2021) will be held in Warsaw, Poland, on 17-18 June 2021. Topics of interest include the following:

  • New solutions of LED sources, luminaires, and control systems
  • New solutions for interior, road, exterior lighting, and floodlighting
  • Laboratory and field measurements in lighting
  • Visual and non-visual impact of lighting
  • Energy efficiency and economics of lighting solutions
  • Lighting in smart cities and light pollution
  • Integrating lighting in the IoT and multimedia

Following the event, in collaboration with Energies (MDPI), up to 30 high-quality papers from the conference will be invited to submit follow-up articles extending the presented research in a dedicated Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
