CNC-CIE information

Jennifer Veitch, Vice President of the Canadian Vice-President, Canadian National Committee for the Commission International de l'Eclairage (CNC-CIE) has sent a message regarding the Biannual Joint Meeting of the CNC/CIE (see below). For those of you interested in colour and light, interface with the national/international lighting community holds potential for finding intersecting areas/topics of interest. More discourse and research on the interplay of colour and light is of potential value across many fields, and as the arts and sciences build bridges through interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research models, we already are, and hope to grow in our active fostering of such exchange. The AIC, our 'parent' organization, is certainly a place where this interface occurs. I encourage you to learn more about the opportunities these organizations hold for diverse exploration and contribution.

The CRSC hopes to engage with the CNC-CIE as we go forward, and welcomes any opportunity to do so. If you have ideas about this, please contact me at or

CRSC/SCRC President

Here is Jennifer's notice:

Dear colleagues,
There is lots of news for you about administrative matters in the CNC/CIE, but I will start with the most important. We had some communications difficulties this summer, so please accept our apologies if information passed you by.
1. You are invited to the 9th Biannual Joint Meeting of the CIE/USA and CNC/CIE at the California Lighting Technologies Center in Davis, California, Nov. 7-8, 2013.  There is a welcome reception on the evening of Nov. 6, technical day on Nov. 7, and business meetings on Nov. 8.  The web site for the event is here: Registration and hotel information will be online shortly.
The November 8 meeting is the Annual General Meeting of the CNC/CIE. If you want to take part in that meeting but can't travel to Davis, we will make arrangements for teleconferencing. Please contact me at if you want to take part remotely.
2. We have a new URL for the CNC/CIE:   Among other recent updates, you can see the preliminary program for the joint meeting here:
3.  We have an interim Secretary, Mr. Bill Neil.  Bill will stand in for the Secretary, Réjean Baribeau, while he is on leave. Bill is a Technical Officer in the Thermometry, Radiometry, and Photometry Group at NRC Measurement Science and Standards.
4. We have a new and stable e-mail address for CNC/CIE correspondence: Please use this e-mail to send messages to the Secretary, or to ask him to forward mail to any member of the CNC/CIE.  We have set this up such that other NRC staff who are active in the CNC/CIE may also monitor the mailbox in case the Secretary is away or unavailable.
