Welcome message

We are honored to announce LatinDisplay 2012 to be held at Mackenzie Presbyterian University, in São Paulo, SP, Brazil, in November from 26th to 30th, 2012. It is also our great pleasure to announce that International Display Research Conference (IDRC 2012) of the Society for Information Display (SID) will join LatinDisplay 2012 this year, bringing scientists from all over the world to present the latest advances in displays, to stimulate new research and business relationships and to encourage those new to the field.

LatinDisplay 2012/IDRC 2012 will provide the participants with great opportunities to experience and discuss state-of-the-art displays and related technologies, as well as exciting new applications. Other technologies that will be discussed, due to their direct relationship to displays, are touch screens and advanced interfaces  (gestural, multimodal, adaptive, etc.), image processing, lighting (fluorescent lamps, LEDs, OLEDs), organic electronics, batteries, solar cells, nanotechnology, etc.

The conference will provide, also, an update on the status of Brazil in developing displays and related technologies and on the opportunities for their production in the country.

LatinDisplay 2012/IDRC 2012 is organized by the Society for Information Display (SID), Associação Brasileira de Informática (ABINFO), Centro de Tecnologia da Informação Renato Archer (CTI) and Mackenzie Presbyterian University and it is sponsored by Brazilian funding agencies and Government.
