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 five special topics and two topical sessions, which are extremely timely, as well as 16 general topics. The special topics are these recent hot topics: Artificial Intelligence and Smart Society, AR/VR and Hyper Reality, Automotive Displays, Quantum Dot Technologies, and Micro/Mini LEDs. The topical sessions are organized for new technology topics: "DX Sensing and Radiation Imaging" and "Metaverse System".
The IDW Scope includes a variety of topics of display materials and components, display devices, electronic systems, quality evaluation, interactive technologies, 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 encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.
Artificial Intelligence and Smart Society
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become pervasive in our daily lives. AI will be a fundamental technology to realize smart society, such as Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0, where the cloud and edge are excellently connected. In this scope, the relationship between information displays, AI, and smart society will be discussed. All topics related to AI and smart society, including fundamental research and technical developments, are going to be discussed. The following areas are not restrictive but suggestive:
