9th International Symposium on Display Holography (ISDH 2012)
25-29 June 2012
MIT Media Lab, Cambridge Massachusetts USA
[Note that ISDH meets every three years; the next ISDH will be in summer 2015. Dates and location will be announced here]
The first International Symposium on Display Holography (ISDH) was originated by Professor Tung H. Jeong in 1982 at Lake Forest College in Illinois, USA.
ISDH is a unique event. It is not like any other scientific conference. Rather, it is one that synthesizes history, education, art, science, and economic developments that involve holography. A unique purpose of ISDH, beside the obvious exchange of information on display holography, is to engender a sense of community among participants. After the initial attendance of an ISDH, one looks forward to all the future "family reunions." Traditionally ISDH has met outside major cities in order to maximize interactions and minimize external distractions, but for 2012 ISDH will be taking over the top floor of the new extension of the MIT Media Lab, adjacent to the Charles River and overlooking Boston. We hope you will be able to join us.
Conference Co-Chairs: Michael Bove and Seth Riskin (USA)
Honorary Conference Chairs: Tung H. Jeong (USA), Joseph W. Goodman (USA)
Technical Program Committee: Hans I. Bjelkhagen (UK), Frank Fan (China), Nasser Peyghambarian (USA), Hiroshi Yoshikawa (Japan)

Authors: please log in to the manuscript submission site and submit your manuscripts. Templates and formatting information are at the "Submit PDF" link.
Call for Exhibition
There will be two opportunities for ISDH participants to exhibit their work.
The MIT Museum is planning to feature works of the ISDH community in an exhibition in its permanent holography gallery, to open at the time of the ISDH Symposium. The call for MIT Museum exhibition proposals is now closed. For more detailed information please click here.
Additionally, impromptu exhibition space will be provided at the MIT Media Lab during ISDH so that attendees may share their work in a more informal, uncurated setting.
If you are interested in our informal on-site exhibition area to show your holograms at ISDH, please be aware that the setup will be a wire-grid wall with hooks and spotlights, similar to what used to be provided at SPIE Photonics West. Holograms need to be framed for hanging, and although we'll be taking reasonable precautions we'd suggest that you not plan on showing anything extremely valuable or fragile. We can also provide tabletop space if anyone needs that. If you require something special, like monochromatic illumination, you'll have to bring it.
So we can get a sense of how many people will be taking advantage of the arrangements, please send us a note at email@example.com if you're planning on showing something.
Arts and Exhibition Committee: Betsy Connors-Chen (USA), Melissa Crenshaw (Canada), John Durant (USA), Dieter Jung (Germany), Linda Law (USA), Martin Richardson (UK), Jonathan Ross (UK), Sally Weber (USA)
