Samsung Electronics will bring its 82-inch high-definition TFT-LCD TV display. It is the world's largest display, according to the company.

The Society of Information Display (SID; San Jose, CA) will hold SID 2005 on May 24-26 on two floors of Boston's Hynes Convention Center, and will encompass approximately 54,000 square feet of the latest electronic information display products and services. According to SID, the conference is shaping up to be the biggest and the best since the first one was launched 42 years ago.

More than 200 companies will be exhibiting at the 2005 SID Symposium. All sectors of the display industry will be represented, including: advancements in LCD, plasma and projection TVs; electronic paper and flexible displays; 3-D displays; OLEDs; touch screens; display drivers and controllers; microdisplays; display materials; display manufacturing equipment; display components; test and measurement equipment; display glass; optical coatings and films; backlights; and display subsystems.

SID has also launched the SID Business Enterprise as an integral part of its 2005 International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition. The SID Business Enterprise, which will take place May 23-25, will be composed of two elements: an expanded two-day Business Conference (May 23-24) and a brand-new Investors Conference (May 25).

Event organizers expanded the 2005 Business Conference after seeing attendance at the 2004 Business Conference nearly double from 2003, to 709 people. Attendees also expressed a desire for more time to interact with presenters and time has been built into the expanded 2005 Business Conference.

The opening address will be delivered by H. B. Chen, president and COO of AU Optronics Corp. (Hsinchu, Taiwan). He will discuss the future of LCDs, with an emphasis on Taiwan's role.
