IEEE HKUST Student Branch

The IEEE HKUST Student Branch was founded in 1998. The objective of the Branch is to advance our members' standing and knowledge in the engineering profession. To achieve this goal, our Branch focuses on networking with the industry, scholars in other universities and with other local IEEE branches, and organizing meetings and conferences to keep our members abreast of the latest developments in engineering fields.

Society for Information Display

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!
