This session will examine what role lighting design can play in influencing human behavior in the
nighttime outdoor environment. The presenters will illustrate design practice techniques used to
exploit light's ability to reinforce, enhance, modify and manipulate behavioral response.  They will offer up case study precedent work as well as established lighting design methodologies for such approaches. The goal will be to provide the designer's perspective on how these frequently applied methods can result in the apparent strengthening of desired behaviors. 

Previous and ongoing research precedents will be cited to help explain why the design approaches
employed in the real life application examples are, by many measures, successful.  In certain cases, there may not be science to support such conjecture - or even some research that contradicts the practice - but why it might or might not still be an effective design methodology will be examined.

Both designers and researchers will offer a position on where future research can be focused that
would be supportive of lighting practioners in the application area discussed.
