Cel Fosc, Asociación contra la Contaminación Lumínica is honored to invite you to participate in the 13th European Symposium for the Protection of the Night Sky to be held in the Planetarium of Pamplona, Spain, from 12th to 14th September, 2013.

For three days, experts from different fields and countries met to address various aspects of light pollution, both in relation to it characterization, and in its impact on the environment, health, the economy, public security or culture.

It will be presented the latest research and proposals provided from the field of science and engineering and will discuss legislation and proposals for a more efficient and respectful of public lighting installations. The new lighting devices based on solid-state lighting (LED) are favoring the emergence of new practices that produce very significant savings in consumption but that have to be regulated with caution and common sense.

This year the Symposium will pay special attention to the effects of light pollution on health and the environment and will present the latest developments regarding measurement and control of the evolution of the phenomenon. The participation of lighting engineering professionals enable us to see the market trends and the best practices of the outdoor lighting.

The 13th European Symposium for the protection of the night sky appears as a multidisciplinary forum to discuss the protection of the night from a holistic point of view, with the aim of advancing the consolidation of a new culture of light.
