As the year is meant to raise awareness and spread knowledge, there will also be a small presentation in English on IYL
2015 and one on 100 years since Albert Einstein came up with the general theory of relativity, by Astrophysicist Alexander Prokofiev, from the Lomonosov Moscow State University.
The LED professional Scientific Award will be presented for the first time at the LED professional Symposium +Expo in Bregenz in acknowledgement of the IYL
Committee members of the ESA were particularly pleased to reach a wider audience than usual for their annual open day, which was a major part of the IYL event.
However, it is hard to judge how successfully the IYL Day met another need identified at forum meetings--to promote more interest in languages in the general community
Organised by the ACT Bilingual Education Group, which has also been involved in forum planning, the stall publicised the IYL, the benefits of bilingualism, and also provided information about language programs in the ACT At the 2009 Festival, the stall is being sponsored by the ESA, and will try to incorporate more details of programs, especially for preschoolers and adults, which were a major focus of enquiries in 2008.
This was incorporated into the program of the IYL celebration as an hour-long panel discussion.
Encouraged by the success of the international book exhibit and the fledgling IYL
, Lepman and others founded the International Board on Books for Young People, or IBBY, in 1953.
2015 programs encourage improving public and political understanding of the central role of light in the modern world by bringing together stakeholders such as scientific societies, educational institutions, technology platforms, non-profit organizations and private sector partners.

The IES is an official sponsor of IYL
(as is the IALD).
With a few exceptions--the IALD is linking its 2015 events to IYL
themes--I've seen little in the way of announcements or "countdowns" to IYL
, and a Google News search yields virtually nothing.
