"EuroDisplay-2019" conference has been for many years an important event for the display community. The strength of this meeting is to gather a selection of important topics into a single Conference on a short period of time, maximizing the chances of fruitful interaction between scientists, technologists and engineers.
The large array of invited and keynote speakers highlights the broad field of interest covered by this conference, ranging from synthesis and characterization of modern display materials and physical phenomena to advanced displays, production technologies and equipment.
Finally, in addition of the high quality scientific communications, coming to Minsk might also be the good occasion to discover our city.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Minsk in September, 2019.

Best regards,

The ED-2019 Organizing Committee
