The 15th International Workshop on Active-Matrix Flatpanel Displays and Devices (AM-FPD-08, former AM-LCD) will be held from July 2 to 4 2008 at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan), Tokyo, Japan.
AM-FPD has extended the goals of former AM-LCD workshop in order to address, apart from AM-LCD technology, AM-OLED displays and other AM-FPD technologies. The topics of AM-FPD also include TFT devices, circuits and systems, LC technologies, related materials and crystallization.
Besides, a symposium "Emerging Technologies for Future Displays" is scheduled. This symposium will consist of four sessions: "Basic properties for fututre TFTs", "Advanced TFT technologies for future applications", "Technologies for LCD" and "Future technologies for Organic Devices".
The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in the Japanese Journal of Applied Physics, in a special issue called "Active-Matrix Flatpanel Displays and Devices-TFT Technologies and FPD Materials".
AM-FPD is one of the top conferences in the field of TFTs. Papers are very interesting, and include several invited presentations.
A number of papers address TFT compact modeling. H. Ikeda (Sony, Japan) presents one paper entitled "Surface Potential-BAsed Polycrystalline- Silicon TFT Model for Circuit Simulation". M. Kimura (Ryukoku University, Japan) presents "Physical Model of Current-Voltage Characteristic for TFT".
Other papers address issues such as LCD & FPDs, TFT crystallization technologies, TFT process technologies, characterization and reliability of TFTs, OLEDs, Oxide Semiconductor TFTs, and new applications of TFTs
