The Building Technologies Department of the Environmental Energy Technologies Division (EETD) at Berkeley Lab is developing a Web-based tool that allows lighting and daylighting designers to quickly and easily assess the effects of key parameters on qualitative and quantitative aspects of daylighting and lighting performance. This provides an option for assessing lighting designs without running detailed simulations. Architecture Week features scientist Konstantinos Papamichael's story of this innovation.

Lab Team Sought
for Cancer Society Relay

Marsha Williamson is looking for people for the local area to form a Berkeley Lab team to participate in Relay For Life, an overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of the local American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times. Contact Williamson at X5651 or 234-7104 to get more information.
