About the Annual International Radiance Workshop

The Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory (ESBL) of the University of Oregon is pleased to host this year’s 16th Annual International Radiance Workshop in Portland, Oregon. This event is a great opportunity for academics, consultants and anyone interested in lighting related subjects using Radiance software to gather, learn, and exchange ideas. Previously held at various locations across Europe and the United States, ESBL is excited to welcome the Radiance community to the Pacific Northwest to enjoy a front row seat of the total solar eclipse before immersing in a three day Radiance workshop followed by an optional day of Radiance training. Come connect with Radiance users from around the world involved in research,  lighting design, daylighting, animation, simulation, and rendering activities.

About the Organizers

ESBL has helped the University of Oregon Department of Architecture in the School of Architecture and Allied Arts become a leading architecture program for sustainable design principles in the USA.

Rendering With Radiance

We would like to thank our colleague Charles Ehrlich for supporting the workshop! Charles has been providing reprints of the “Rendering With Radiance” textbook, an indispensable resource for Radiance users of all levels! These reprints are available through Amazon. (https://goo.gl/Wdxi2u)
