International Display Workshops (IDW) includes a variety of topics and aspects of display technologies, systems, processes and applications. In particular, this year's IDW will feature the following four special topics and one topical session, which are extremely timely, as well as 16 general topics. The special topics are these recent hot topics: AR/VR and Hyper Reality, Automotive Displays, Quantum Dot Technologies, and Micro/Mini LEDs. The topical session is organized for new technology topics: Artificial Intelligence and Smart Society.
The IDW Scope includes a variety of topics of display materials and components, display devices, electronic systems, quality evaluation, interactive technolo- gies, manufacturing processes and equipment, and applications listed below. We welcome the submission of original papers on all aspects of research, technical development, measurement systems, driving methods, data management and applications of information displays, and related technologies. We particularly en- courage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.
AR/VR and Hyper Reality
This topic will cover all aspects of technologies related to display applications closest to the end-user such as virtual reality, augmented reality (mixture of VR and the real world), and hyper reality (hyper-realistic systems). Regarding recent development of VR devices, authors of all accepted papers are highly encouraged to present their demo in the I-DEMO session.
The significance of visual interface has been increasing in automobiles. This topic will cover all aspects of display technologies used in or outside of automobiles, including the following scopes.
Micro/Mini LEDs have recently attracted keen attentions in their applications to information displays. This topic will cover all aspects and issues of technologies for flat-panel displays with Micro/Mini LEDs implemented densely.
Quantum Dot Technologies
This topic will cover all aspects of science and technologies of Quantum Dot (QD) and Quantum Rod (QR), ranging from materials research, device structure and properties, to device applications, manufacturing and high color gamut displays using QD/QR.
Artificial Intelligence and Smart Societys
Recently, artificial intelligence becomes a common technology, and it will be a key concept of smart society in the future, which is called Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0, where the cloud and edge are excellently connected. In this scope, the relationship between information displays, artificial intelligence, and smart society will be discussed. Some respective researchers will be invited as invited speakers, and some contributions from researchers being interested in these topics are welcomed.
