Impressions from Senior Technical Editor, Alan Thompson About Intertech/PIRA’s LED Conference

in San Diego, California October 16-18th. Rather than giving a run down of all
the speakers and their presentations, I thought I would highlight a few topics

A very interesting workshop was presented prior to the main conference by the
International Finance Corporation (IFC), a division of the World Bank that is
tasked with enabling commercial opportunities to improve people
