Symposia on Automotive Lighting have a long tradition at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. Starting in 1995 the first symposium took place in the “Kekulé” lecture room at the TU Darmstadt. Since then, nearly two decades have elapsed and the location of the event has been changed to the immense and representative new congress centre “darmstadtium”. After the ISAL 2013 hosting more than 680 experts, it will be our greatest pleasure to welcome all relevant international stakeholders of auto-motive lighting industry again in 2015.

Overcoming many challenges in the past years, industry is facing new objectives today. Latest research and development focuses on full LED headlamps with adaptive lighting functions as well as on Laser headlamps to improve safety as-pects and driving comfort. As a major topic, LED low beam headlamps with an electrical power of about 13 W are intensively discussed.

ISAL 2015 will encourage the exchange between lighting engineers, road safety experts and regulatory bodies. The most recent results of research and develop-ment will be presented to continue the established traditions of this conference and to promote a bright future for automotive lighting.
