CIE Publications - Premium Source for Knowledge on Light and Lighting

One key activity of the CIE is the publication of technical and scientific work in the form of Technical Reports (TRs), International Standards (ISs) or Technical Notes (TNs). CIE TRs and ISs are the result of the work of CIE Technical Committees (TCs), in the case of ISs these are often further developed as dual logo standards with the ISO or IEC. CIE TRs and ISs are available for purchase via the CIE Webshop.

CIE Technical Notes are also developed by CIE TCs but can also be the result of the work of a CIE Reportership. These TNs are concise technical papers summarizing information of fundamental importance to CIE members and stakeholders. The CIE TNs are open source and are made freely available for download from the CIE website.

In addition to the publication of work from CIE TCs and Reporterships the CIE Board of Administration (BA) will from time to time issue CIE Position Statements (PSs) in response to significant questions or comments from external parties on matters of strong interest to the CIE. PSs, like TNs, are also freely available from the CIE website.

CIE also publishes proceedings from its conferences and symposia, the abstract booklets associated with these proceedings are downloadable for free from the CIE website. The proceedings themeselves are available for purchase from the CIE Webshop both as complete proceedings and in some cases individual papers are availalbe.
