SID International Symposium

The Society for Information Display's virtual Display Week will run from May 17-21, offering a wide selection of display technology presentations from global experts that simply cannot be found anywhere else.

Short Courses

The Society for Information Display presents short courses from speakers who are leaders in their respective fields and bring an international perspective to information display. These five tutorials offer an in-depth introduction to topic fundamentals for students, scientists, and engineers looking to expand their technical breadth into a new area.


Our 14 seminars present lectures on diverse topics related to electronic information displays and applications. These seminars are tutorial in nature, and an attempt is made to provide information at three levels. First the technical foundations of the topic are discussed, followed by recent technical advances, and then projection of future trends.
