Welcome to the Emerging Display Technologies 2007 (EDT2007) website!

EDT 2007 is going to be co-located with Siggraph 2007 in San Diego, California, on Saturday August 4th, 2007.

EDT 2007 is the third in a successful series of EDT workshops dedicated to new and innovative display technologies. The recent flurry of display technology development has produced families of technologies that make fixed and projected pixels cheaper, faster, more flexible, of higher quality, and touchable. These advances enable ‘smart pixels’ and enable a number of burgeoning applications ranging from displays being used for better and more flexible images, to innovative user interaction, scene sensing, and environment enhancement. This one-day workshop should provide an opportunity to expand attendee thinking about ways to use contemporary display devices in virtual reality systems and applications.

The 2005 workshop (affiliated with IEEE VR 2005) and 2006 workshop (affiliated with IEEE VR 2006) were big successes, with over 100 attendees enjoying a full day of technical presentations and spirited panel discussion.  Check the 2006 proceedings as a sample of the exciting topics covered in the workshops.

The submission deadline is over and the program has been arranged. Please see the Advance Program for a list of the presentations. It covers a wide array of different topics related to Emerging Display Technologies and we're sure there will be something interesting for everybody, from laptops with direct interaction to very (very) large screens and displays.

We hope to see many of you there
