SID Vehicle Display 2017 Conference had record high attendees

October 3, 2017.  By Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D.

I just returned from the SID Vehicle Display and Interface 2017 conference in Detroit, Michigan. It was my honor to meet some of you in person.

This year’s conference had record high attendees—approximately 500 industry professionals. I recall when I spoke at this conference about 10 years ago regarding touch screen, there were approximately 100 attendees. This growth is another reflection of the automotive industry’s adoption of advanced technologies.

Dr. Thomas Seder, GM Technical Fellow & Chief Technologist-HMI at General Motors, gave a Keynote speech titled “Augmented Reality System Architecture, Supporting Technologies and HMI Requirements” on September 26th.

My presentation title was “How to survive and lead the Touch Panel and Touchless industry in 2015 and beyond”. Touch panel industry is quickly changing. Certain companies are profitable, certain companies are losing money. In this presentation, I discussed the opportunities for growth in the touch panel and touchless human-machine interaction industry.

During this trip, I also had a chance to visit Planar and discussed touch display topics with others. More reviews can be found in the Touch and Emerging Display monthly report, April issue.

A Commendation from SID

May 31, 2013

I’m back from SID 2013 Displayweek conference with an award, given to me by SID president Brian Berkeley for my volunteer work at the SID Bay Area’s first one-day conference in January—”Display and Touch Technologies of the Future.” I really appreciate it!

It was lots of work to put together a conference like that. Geoff Walker, the former Bay Area chapter chair, came to me and other volunteers last August, and asked us to organize the first one-day conference. After over four months of hard work, the conference was successfully held on January 16th, 2013. It was overwhelmingly successful with 160 attendees. We had to apologize to another twenty-five people on the waiting list, because the venue was not spacious enough for the extra crowd.

To all the volunteer team, this award is also for you:  Geoff, Rashmi, John, Joe, Steve, Cheng-wei, Catherine, Lauren. Thank you and cheers!
