IDW '17
IDW on Facebook

IDW consists of workshops technically categorized into specialized fields playing important roles in information display activities. This year two workshops are set up as topical sessions. Each workshop organizes its own sessions which consist of oral presentations by invited/contributing speakers and poster presentations where detailed and fruitful discussions on each specialized R&D update are provided. The workshops also come together to form the sessions in the common application named “Special Topics of Interest”. The workshops should be of interest not only to researchers and engineers, but also to those who manage companies and institutions in the display community.

workshop site The city of Sendai is located in the northern part of Honshu Island, and is the largest city in the Tohoku region, with a population of more than one million. At the beginning of the 17th Century, the feudal lord Date Masamune built Sendai Castle and reigned over this district. There are many trees in the city, which is why it is called the “City of Trees”. Sendai City is also famous for delicious food such as sushi, grilled beef tongue, and Sendai Dagashi (traditional sweets in Sendai). JR Sendai Station is about 1 hour and 30 minutes from Tokyo Station by the Tohoku Shinkansen, and Sendai Airport is 55-75 minutes from Narita International Airport, or 80-100 minutes from Kansai Interna- tional Airport. From the Airport, JR Sendai Station is 18-25 minutes by the Sendai Airport Access Line. Sendai International Center is located about 2 km from JR Sendai station and only 200m (1 minute on foot) from the International Center Station (5 minutes by subway from JR Sendai Station).
