GENERAL SYMPOSIUM TOPICS:
The Society for Information Display (SID) encourages the submission of original papers on all aspects of the research
engineering, application, evaluation, and utilization of displays. Display Week 2015 will feature topical sessions that focus
specifically on selected issues or key developments.
Displays papers are often related to more than one category below. While the special topics sessions listed on the right will be arranged in a unified
program for the benefit of attendees, authors should indicate the appropriate topical track for their abstract in addition to
special topic designation (if any).
Papers are solicited in all aspects of displays as well as motion-image technology,
including device technology (LCD, OLED, PDP, projector, etc.) and related system technology. Papers are also solicited in
the area of technology development that enables lower-power-consumption and higher-performance display devices for
battery-powered applications (mobile phones, tablets, e-books, etc.).
Active-Matrix Devices: Advances in the innovative
development and implementation of active-matrix electronics
into displays and other devices. Active-Matrix
Devices focus on TFTs themselves and their circuit
design and application, including TFTs electrical/
optical characteristics, reliability, new structures, and
Applications: Papers are sought to discuss unique and
innovative applications of all varieties of display technologies
for the consumer, industrial, commercial, and
Applied Vision / Human Factors: All aspects of vision,
perception, and human factors as they apply to the design,
image quality, and usability of all types of visual display
Display Electronics: Circuits (integrated or otherwise)
for displays, image- and video-processing algorithms,
and electronic components for displays.
Display Manufacturing: Materials, process, and equipment
developments for the manufacture and assembly
of display panels and module assemblies.
Display Measurement: Characterization and measurements
of displays and display components.
Display Systems: Novel integration of displays into
specialized devices, as well as system-level aspects of
Emissive Displays: All aspects of emissive displays,
including PDPs, field-emission displays, light-emitting
diodes, quantum-dot displays, inorganic EL displays, and
field-emission lamps. Advances in materials and processing
of such devices including phosphors, quantum-dot
materials, and field emitters are also sought.
e-Paper and Flexible Displays: All aspects of
e-paper and flexible-display technologies, including
organic electronics and printed electronics. e-paper
displays, flexible Ch-LCDs, and other novel reflective
displays. The scope is to capture display and display
components related to paper-like display technologies
on novel materials. Advances directed at the development
of substrates, fabrication, transistors, printing, and
novel deposition techniques, drive techniques, electrooptical
effects, devices, manufacturing, and applications
for flexible-display technology, electronic paper, and
emerging display technologies are sought. Work focusing
on materials is also welcome. This interdisciplinary
topic will highlight emerging technologies outside the
paradigm of established LCD technologies.
Liquid-Crystal and Other Non-Emissive Displays:
Advances in the development of liquid-crystal and other
passive-matrix displays, including electro-optical effects,
materials, and devices.
Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs): Papers are
sought on display design and performance of small–
to–large-area panels, including OLED displays utilizing
poly-Si, a-Si, microcrystalline silicon, CMOS crystalline
silicon, and emerging areas of organic TFTs and mixed
oxide transistors, including ZnO-based materials.
Papers that discuss the progress and challenges for
OLED display performance and manufacturing issues
as compared to LCDs and plasma displays are of
particular interest. Furthermore, papers on OLED
signage and OLED lighting solutions are welcome.
Projection Displays: Applications for projection displays
continue to grow as they continue to dominate the largescreen
market and become more common even for
small images. Authors are invited to submit papers on all
aspects of projection displays, including components,
finished projectors, complete projection systems, and
projection applications. Projectors of all types will be
covered, including pico/micro/nano projectors, mainstream
projectors, large-venue projectors, rear-projectionbased
cubes, short-throw projectors, consumer rear
projection, and other designs for specific applications.
Components of interest include microdisplays (SLMs),
light sources, optical components, projection screens,
Touch and Interactive Displays: Advances in touchscreen
technologies, applications, driving electronics,
system integration, and human interactions. The
advanced materials and process technologies associated
with touch design and applications will be also covered.
