IDW '20


International Display Workshops

December, 9-11, 2020
Fukuoka, Japan

IDW consists of workshops technically categorized into specialized fields playing important roles in information display technologies. This year one workshop will be held as a topical session. 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. Some workshops also come together to form the common sessions called "Special Topics of Interest." The workshops should be of interest to not only researchers and engineers, but also to those who manage companies and institutions in the information display community. The proceedings of IDW '20 will be provided on-site. In addition, a few months after the conference, the proceedings will be provided as an online open-access archive and each paper will be given a unique DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

COVID-19 Update

(June 29)

IDW '20 committees are now preparing for the conference while carefully checking the influence of the COVID-19 infection.

As already announced in May, although we expect that the situation will have improved by December, if it is not possible to hold the physical meeting or if it is difficult for people to participate in person, we are also preparing for online participation. For example,

  • –  the opportunity of online presentations for the presenters,
  • –  online questions and answers for the participants,
  • –  published proceedings with unique DOI (Digital Object Identifier),
and so on.

In the event of online participation, the registration fees for IDW '20 will be discounted. Further information will be announced around the middle of July.

Conference Site

The city of Fukuoka is located in the northern part of Kyushu Island with a population of about 1.6 million, making it the 5th largest city in Japan. The city has been a gateway to Asia for economic and cultural exchanges with its Asian neighbors since ancient times.

Fukuoka Airport (FUK) is about an hour's flight from Kansai International Airport (KIX) and about 2 hours from both Tokyo International Airport (HND) and Narita International Airport (NRT) respectively. From Fukuoka Airport, the JR Hakata Station, the central station of Fukuoka, is only 5 minutes by subway and is within 10 to 20 minutes of major accommodation and convention facilities. This is very convenient for visitors.

In the largest entertainment quarter in Kyushu, Nakasu, you can enjoy the fresh seafood, the Tonkotsu Ramen, Mizutaki, etc., and the Hakata specialty "Yatai".

The Fukuoka International Congress Center is located only 1.5 km from the center of Fukuoka city, Tenjin, and only about 2.5 km from JR Hakata station. This is an excellent advantage for the itineraries of conference-goers.
