*UV LED Summit: Roadmapping Session - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM*
Organized by Bob Karlicek, Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center, RPI

The evolution of UV LED curing systems will be strongly influenced by three key factors: The availability of efficient LED die, the development of efficient optical delivery systems, and new system integration platforms that can reduce overall UV curing system cost. This session will discuss the current state-of-the-art in UV LED curing technology and work to define goals and estimate development timelines for the design of advanced, efficient and cost effective UV LED curing systems.

*NIST Dinner + UV LED Discussion - October 2, 2013 / 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM*

Representatives from NIST will be attending and discussions will be held on standardizing UV LED Radiometry. We would like to have as many representatives from the UV LED industry in attendance as possible. Please plan to attend and make sure your voice is heard!

Short-Course: The Chemistry of UV/EB - 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Instructor: Susan Bailey, Adjunct Professor, SUNY-ESF Outreach

Description; This is an introductory course to the basic chemistry of UV/EB curable formulations. Topics covered will include radiation sources, classes of photo-initiators, reactive and non-reactive formulation components, and typical challenges to successful curing systems. Methods for analysis of the cured film and monitoring of the curing progression will be presented. The course is suitable for those with prior undergraduate chemistry course work or similar knowledge from experience.
