and Technology, etc. The 15 keynote speakers delivered speeches on hot topics such as LCD, OLED, AR & VR & AI, Micro - LED and E - Paper.


The meeting was a shocking feast, and the round table was attended by more than 30 representatives from mainland China,the United States, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

In the ICDT technical seminar, it revolved around 17 areas of display technology, including 53 technologies.Art conference, about 260 oral reports ( including 156 invited reports, accounting for 30 % of overseas reports ) and 120 poster reports, the speakers were from 87 different enterprises, 84 different universities and scientific research institutions, such as Tsinghua, Peking University, Fudan University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Southeast University, Sun Yat - sen University, Zhejiang University, Xiamen University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Taiwan University, Oxford University, Florida University, Korea Gyeongxi University, Cambridge University, Columbia University, Kyushu University, Edinburgh University, etc. Industry enterprises such as Shenzhen Huaxing Optoelectronics Co., Ltd., Visionox , NeuDrive Limited、Pixelligent、Plansee、Dow Chemical、LGD、TCL 、BOE、Tianma、Hisense、JOLED、 Kateeva, Inc.、DowDuPont、Merck、Jasper Display Corp. (JDC)、AU Optronics Corp.、Universal Display Corporation、CYNORA、Eink Corporation、 SUMITOMO CHEMICAL、FlexEnable、PlayNitrideetc ,and other major scientific research institutions, such as Suzhou Institute of Nanotechnology and Nanobionics of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Physical and Chemical Technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Microelectronics of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Guangdong Semiconductor Lighting Research Institute, China Standardization Research Institute, and Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences, etc. . They published technical reports on 17 technical fields including active matrixdisplay technology, active light-emitting display, application vision,electronic paper and flexible display technology, virtual reality and augmented reality technology, liquid crystal technology, display application technology,lighting technology, display electronics technology, organic light-emitting diode display technology, display measurement technology, printing display technology, display manufacturing technology, projection display technology,display system, touch and interactive display technology and vehicle display technology.


In addition, the exhibition of this conference attracted 25 enterprises to participate in the exhibition, including Journey Technology.Radiant Vision Systems, Konica Minolta Holdings, Inc., New Vision, Teicon China, Bose Technology, Raymond & Co., OE - A, CoA Tema Coating Machinery GmbH, ShenzhenNED Optics Co.,Ltd., HangZhou Everfine Photo-e-info Co.,Ltd, Silvaco, Light-all Technology, SINEVA,Mikrouna, Forster, Vigor, InnoChem Technology, Sensing Optronics Coporation,Winifred, West Boro Photonics, Pushon Electric, BEQ, Jol. Inc, Notion Systems GmbH. Not only has an exhibition area been set up, but I - zone ( innovation area ) has also been specially set up to show the prototype and prototype of new technologies brought by universities and enterprises, involving 3 - d naked-eye display, transparent display, micro led,electronic paper, VR display and new applications of tft sensing.


The above is only the tip of the iceberg of ICDT 2018, and this is only the second international conference on display technology. SID China, which has not been here, will stick to the ICDT conference brand and will do better as possible to become a bright landscape in the industry and attract more experts at home and abroad.
