2020 Program

The Society for Information Display's annual Display Week runs from August 2nd - August 7th, offering a wide selection of display technology presentations by global experts that simply cannot be found anywhere else. 

SID International Symposium
The four-day Symposium features hundreds of leading display industry papers from around the world in multiple technical sessions. It includes a plenary keynote session, presentations in parallel sessions, a poster session organized around selected topics, and author interview sessions with demo models each afternoon. This year's program consists of six technical tracks of over 70 technical sessions consisting of nearly 400 oral and poster presentations. 

Sunday Short Courses The Society for Information Display presents morning and afternoon tracks of five short courses on Sunday, August 2nd. Tutorial notes will be distributed to all participants and are included in the fee. Ample time will be provided for questions from the audience. The speakers are leaders in their respective fields and bring an international perspective to information display.  The tutorials cover the fundamentals of the topic in greater depth than the Monday Seminars, which tend to be focused more on the state of the art due to the shorter time slot allowed for the seminars.  

Monday Seminars The Monday Seminars present lectures on diverse topics related to electronic information displays and applications. These seminars are tutorial in nature, and an attempt is made to provide information at three levels. First the technical foundations of the topic are discussed, followed by recent technical advances, and ending with projection of future trends. 
These seminars can benefit both newcomers and experienced professionals. Engineers new to assignments in information display find them especially helpful in getting up to speed quickly. Experienced professionals attend to keep up with recent developments in fields closely related to their specialties. Managers attending the seminars obtain a broad perspective of the display field and a sense of its recent dynamics. Attendees will receive notes, consisting of the instructor’s presentation slides, replete with references and illustrations. The speakers are leaders in their fields who bring an international perspective to information display.

Exhibition
The SID exhibition of display components and systems is your opportunity to see the latest innovative products from the leading companies in the information display industry. The exhibition opens on Tuesday at 10:30 am and concludes at 3:00 pm on Thursday. Many of the leaders and innovators in the display industry will be represented.

Exhibitors Forum
Here, exhibitors give 15 minute presentations describing their technologies and products in a symposium-like setting, offering attendees a more complete picture of what is being exhibited. The presentations are organized by subject and will be presented on a predetermined schedule.

SID Business Conference
The SID Business Conference is the display industry’s largest conference devoted to the display market. Organized in conjunction with Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) for the fourth consecutive year, this event takes a supply chain approach to addressing the display market outlook with executives from panel suppliers, brands, equipment suppliers, materials manufacturers, industry analysts and financial analysts. The Business Conference will consist of two full-day conferences held from August 3rd – 4th , featuring presentations from prominent executives of leading companies throughout the display ecosystem. Each session will address current and emerging issues facing the display industry through presentations and panel sessions with participation from industry leaders and market analysts, providing the insights and strategies necessary to navigate the changing global display marketplace.

Awards Banquet
The Awards Banquet will take place at 7:30 PM on Monday, August 3, 2020. This dinner features distinguished speakers, and honors the SID special recognition award winners and new Fellows.

Display Industry Awards Lunch
The Luncheon will take place at 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 honoring the best products, components, and applications of the preceding year.

I-Zone
The Innovation Zone is a three-day exhibit of pre-commecialization prototypes by graduate students, startups, and large companies.  Following SID's mantra of "showing you tomorrow's technology, today," the I-Zone has been a smash hit since its debut in 2012, while 2020 similarly promises to have the exciting prototypes on display.

CEO Forum - Success Leaves Clues
CEO Forum is free event on Wednesday, August 5th, 2:30 PM where a panel of guest speakers will share tips, tools and insights about how to succeed in the rapidly changing marketplace of display technology.
