ISAL

International Symposium on Automotive Lighting

The International Symposium on Automotive Lighting – or ISAL for short – encourages the exchange between lighting engineers, road safety experts and regulative bodies.

ISAL offers the opportunity to present the most recent results of research and development to continue the established traditions of this conference to be able to promote a bright future for automotive lighting.

Held every two years since 1995, ISAL is organized and hosted by the Laboratory of Lighting Technology of the Technical University Darmstadt in the impressive and representative congress center darmstadtium.

Important Update!

Due to COVID-19 concerns, ISAL 2021 is being postponed and will now be held from April 4 to 6, 2022

At the direction of the Technical University of Darmstadt, the City of Darmstadt, and local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of ISAL 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns.

ISAL 2021 will now take place on April 4, 5, and 6, 2022.

All paper submissions and exhibition space bookings will be honored for the rescheduled date.

While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, the decision to reschedule our event was not taken lightly, and the current concerns around the virus might, in hindsight, appear overdone, the health and safety of our guests, staff, and community is our highest priority.

The clear instruction from the relevant authorities makes postponing the event the only prudent course of action.

Rescheduling the event will enable us to provide the experience that our 1000 attendees, partners, and staff expect and deserve and ensure we deliver a large-scale, high-quality, world-class event.

We know this is a very challenging time for everyone, and we appreciate your understanding and support.

Moving forward, we will focus all our efforts on making ISAL 2021 in April even better.

We remain excited to host you in 2022. Until then, stay safe, stay healthy and take care.

The first symposium took place in 1995 in the “Kekulé” lecture room at the TU Darmstadt. Since then, more than two decades have elapsed, and the event's location has been changed to the immense and representative congress darmstadtium.

Thank you for understanding.

ISAL hosts one of the largest and most dynamic international exhibitions focused on automotive lighting bringing together scientists, technologists, and key players. Leading companies in automotive lighting showcase their latest products, hardware and software solutions to a broad audience of more than 1000 visitors.

Because of the great demand for exhibition spaces, we decided to expand the foyer level even further in order to create new exhibition areas. The following floor plan gives you an overview of the currently available exhibition spaces.
