Dear Colleagues,

At the upcoming PLEA conference in Los Angeles, we will be offering 
training sessions using our DIVA daylighting and Archsim energy analysis 
tools as well as High Dynamic Range photography and glare analysis. 
Please find details and registration links below if you are interested 
in learning about these topics. We are looking forward to meeting many 
of you in LA.

*Introduction to Daylight Simulation in DIVA**
**Instructors*: Alstan Jakubiec (Solemma, Singapore U. of Technology and 
Date*: 11am to 5pm, Sunday, July 10th before the PLEA conference welcome 
Cost*: $200 professional / $50 student*
Location*: Biltmore Los Angeles, Cordoban Room*
Length*: 4 hours + 2 hour open session
*Knowledge required*: Basic familiarity with the Rhinoceros 3D software

This course is specifically geared towards helping designers, 
sustainability consultants and students to learn the basic theory 
underlying daylight simulations and how to integrate such simulations 
within their work. This is a hands-on class in which participants will 
learn how to conduct a series of simulation exercises on their Windows 
laptops using the DIVA-for-Rhino plug-in interface to Radiance and 
Daysim. The exercises and concepts explored include,

  *      Point in time visualizations and glare analysis in Radiance
  *      Daylight Factor and point-in-time illuminance distributions for
    LEED 2009 compliance
  *      Irradiation mapping and analysis
  *      Climate-based annual daylight calculations with dynamic shading
    and electric lighting controls
  *      Spatial Daylight Autonomy (sDA) and Annual Solar Exposure (ASE)
    calculations for LEED v4 compliance

*Register*: Professional ($200) 
/ Student ($50) 

Advanced Parametric Simulations in DIVA**
**Instructors*: Jon Sargent (Solemma) and Timur Dogan (Solemma, Cornell)*
Date*: 11am to 5pm, Sunday, July 10th before the PLEA conference welcome 
*Cost*: $200 professional / $50 student*
Location*: Biltmore Los Angeles, Corinthian Room*
Length*: 5 hours + 1 hour open session
*Knowledge required*: Basic daylight and energy simulation skills; basic 
Grasshopper knowledge

This course covers advanced concepts in parametric daylighting and 
energy analysis using the Grasshopper visual scripting language. The new 
DIVA 4.0 daylighting components and Archsim in Grasshopper will be used 
in order to:

  *      Construct and manipulate multi-zone energy models
  *      Control shading and lighting schedules using Radiance-based methods
  *      Parametrize model geometry, materials, and building controls
  *      Couple performance analysis using Radiance-based lighting
    controls and multi-zone energy models
  *      Launch parametric analyses and harvest simulation results

The class involves demos and live exercises on participants' laptops, so 
come equipped with an installation of Rhinoceros 3D and Grasshopper, and 
be ready to (visually) script!

*Register*: Professional ($200) 
/ Student ($50) 

*Introduction to High Dynamic Range Photography**
**Instructors*: Mehlika Inanici (U. of Washington), Alstan Jakubiec 
(Solemma, Singapore U. of Technology and Design)*
Date*: 2pm to 6pm, Wednesday, July 13th after the PLEA conference
*Cost*: $150 professional / $35 student*
Location*: Biltmore Los Angeles, Corinthian Room*
Length*: 4 hours

In this course, participants will calibrate their own cameras to capture 
high dynamic range (HDR) photographs, a contemporary method of measuring 
luminance levels with standard photographic equipment. The resulting HDR 
images are useful for recording lighting qualities and levels in real 
spaces and performing visual comfort analysis. The course will cover 
methods of capturing HDR images, validation and accuracy, visualization, 
and glare analysis through hands-on examples. After an introductory 
lesson, participants will have the opportunity to record lighting values 
around the course venue in Los Angeles.

Note: Participants need to bring their own camera with a manual function 
for this workshop. A tripod is recommended, although the instructors 
will provide a number of tripods for the course. A Windows-based 
installation and permanent license of the Photosphere HDR software is 
included in the course fee.

*Register*: Professional ($150) 
/ Student ($35)
