Who We Are
Society for Information Display is comprised of the top scientists, engineers, corporate researchers, and business people of the display industry, valued at over US$100B annually. SID was formed in 1962 to promulgate display technology, and that work continues today, publishing a monthly Journal of SID, Information Display magazine, and our annual Digest of Technical Papers, which is presented at our annual spring Display Week Symposium and Exhibition. These publications are available online without additional charge for members.
SID’s annual Display Week is the world’s largest technical symposium and exhibition for emerging technologies in the high-growth global electronic display industry, expected to reach $169.2 billion by 2022. Display Week attracts more than 200 industry-leading value-add exhibitors, and more than 7,000 electronic display design, development, and engineering attendees from across the electronic information display value chain. Attendees gather from more than 50 countries to learn, source and network. They represent nearly every major industry sector, including but not limited to aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, commercial, education, entertainment, financial, government, industrial, marine, medical, military, retail and transportation.
SID has chapters located throughout the world; members are free to choose which chapter they wish to belong to, and many chapters webcast their technical meetings, some of which are available to members as recordings free of charge.
SID also promotes the SID-Wiley book series on display technology, and other conferences including LatinDisplay in Brazil, EuroDisplay in Europe, International Display Workshops in Japan, and Asia Display. Students are supported with deeply discounted memberships, and travel grants for some with the best papers. To train engineers, obtain fresh market perspectives for businesspeople, and for cutting-edge information on tomorrows displays, there's no place like SID!
SID Vision Statement
SID is the world’s most prestigious forum that attracts the brightest minds and innovations in visual information technology.
SID Mission Statement
SID will propagate electronic display and other visual information technologies from concept to market, to sustain a thriving industry.

Introducing High-Performance Quantum Dot Light-Emitting Devices
In a pre-proof study from Organic Electronics, researchers have used the photolithographic method to design high-resolution, highly efficient quantum dot light-emitting diodes (QLEDs) patterned by ultraviolet-induced ligand exchange. This paves the way for the development of next-generation high-resolution displays.
