May 24, 2018, by Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D.

I just returned from SID DisplayWeek 2018 in the beautiful Log Angeles, California. It was my honor to meet some of you in person.

When I asked the president of SID– Dr. Helge Seetzen at Tandemlaunch—on Tuesday, he indicated this year’s conference had broken the record with over 6400 people registered, and there may be more in the next couple of days.

According to the SID Seminar chair—Dr. Ray Ma at Nanosys–, the attendees of the Monday seminar is also a record high, with over 800 people registered for Monday seminars. Good job, applause to the SID DisplayWeek committees.

I was excited and honored to be invited and taught a seminar at SID DisplayWeek again. The 90-minutes seminar is about Display and Emerging Technologies Market Forecast –LCD, OLED, e-paper, touch screen, smart windows and voice recognition.
