2015 Program 

Special Topics

In applications ranging from smartphones to large televisions
the recent advances in display technologies include
immersive visual experiences offered by the emerging
curved surfaces and an inexorable march towards higher
pixel densities. The first wave of consumer products in both
small and large form factors are starting to appear in the
market from a number of companies. This special topic will
cover the technologies and applications of curved and high resolution
displays, including, but not limited to, the following areas:
• Curved TVs and Large Displays
• Curved Smartphones and Other Emerging Mobile
Form Factors
• Benefits and Disadvantages of Curved Display
• Display Technologies for Curved Devices (LCDs, OLEDs, and Other Emerging Displays)
• Backplane Technologies, Pixel Structures, and Driving Techniques
• Manufacturing Processes, Materials, System Integration, Reliability, and Cost-Reduction Efforts
• Content Generation, Image Quality, and Processing for Curved and High-Pixel-Density Displays
• Human Factors and Visual Experiences for Curved and High-Resolution Displays
Submissions must consist of two separate parts. The first part should consist of a single page containing a 35–50 word abstract. The second part should contain a 4-page technical summary that follows the outline below. Please follow the following instructions for the preparation of the Abstract and Technical Summary.

35-50 Word Abstract: Your submitted 35-50 word abstract, highlighting the key details of your paper, will be published in the Advance Program if your paper is accepted. The abstracts are usually edited to accommodate the program format.

Technical Summary: Include the first author's name and the title of the paper on each page. Please include the information listed below in the Technical Summary.
  • Objective and Background: Briefly describe the goals and intent of your project. and give background factors that led to the new results.
  • Results: Describe the specific results that will be presented at the SID 2015 Symposium. Please provide a technical description of how the results were achieved. Sufficient detail (quantitative and/or graphical data) should be included so the Program Committee can properly evaluate your submission.
  • Impact: Discuss the significance of your work and compare your findings with previously published work.
  • References: List a few main references covering projects in related areas.
  • Prior Publications: Generally, Symposium papers must be original contributions. If your organization has published or presented material on similar work in English, please explain how the present material differs. The only exception to this rule is that papers submitted to the Applications Subcommittee need not be original.
The Technical summary must be no longer than four pages. Material beyond four pages will not be considered in evaluating the paper.

All authors are required to upload their Abstract and Technical Summary to http://www.sheridanprinting.com/pcm/sid.


Additional information must be provided in the online submission form. Authors must:
  1. Indicate if you wish to have your paper considered for oral or poster presentation, if you have a preference.
  2. Indicate the closest matching Symposium Topic from the list provided
  3. Include the 35-50 word abstract
  4. Include a minimum of three keywords for the submission;
  5. Indicate whether the presenter of the paper is currently a student; and
  6. Include the names of all authors with their affiliations, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses. Please underline the name of the presenter when there are two or more authors.


Product Engineering/Applications

Please follow the instructions on the technical summary/ abstract submission site, http://www.sheridanprinting.com/pcm/sid. If you need further assistance, please contact Bill Klein at wklein@pcm411.com.

Attention Manufacturers and Suppliers: These sessions contain information on the practical aspects of display technology such as design, manufacturing, and testing of displays and display-related products. Papers are generally product or process oriented and deal with how something was engineered, how it works, what to use, how to use it, and what to avoid. Emphasis should be technical, not marketing. Abstract, paper submission, and presentation requirements are the same as for the Symposium papers, although the content does not have to be original. Applications Sessions will be conducted in parallel with the Symposium sessions. Applications papers are welcome in all areas of display technology previously listed under the applications symposium topics.


The deadline for receipt of technical summaries/abstracts is December 1, 2014 (January 26, 2015 for Late-News Papers). Notification of acceptance will be e-mailed by February 9, 2015 (February 27 for Late-News papers). Authors of accepted papers will be directed to an on-line “Authors Kit” with instructions for the preparation of the paper to be published in the Symposium Digest. The paper shall consist of four pages, including all illustrations and is due March 9, 2015 (March 30 for Late-News papers).
