Society for Information Display (SID) HKUST Student Branch Aspires to Connect Students and Professionals
Society for Information Display (SID) HKUST Student Branch has been established in February 2021 with a mission to provide greater exposure to our students. The HKUST student branch aims to encourage and contribute to educational advancement and provides forums for the exchange and dissemination of ideas in the field of information display. The SID HKUST student branch aspires to establish a link between students and professionals. The SID HKUST student branch aims to organize a variety of programs, including professional talks, workshops, and seminars to the students and members.
The SID 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.
Annual Display Week of the SID 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.
The 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 is no place like SID!
