  I sincerely invite you to the 31st International Workshop on Active-Matrix Flatpanel Displays-TFT Technologies and FPD Materials- (AM-FPD'24). Sponsored by International Society of Functional Thin Film Materials & Devices (FTFMD), co-sponsored the Japan Society of Applied Physics, and technical co-sponsored by IEEE Electron Devices Society, and by ECS Electronics and Photonics Division and Japan Section, AM-FPD'24 marks the 31st event in the workshop series, and is positioned as the workshop that is held under sponsor of general incorporated association FTFMD, which was established by our committees in 2015. Since its inception in 1994, the workshop has been providing important opportunities for people engaged in the research and development of systems, devices & processes, materials for FPDs (Flat Panel Displays), thin-film devices, and photovoltaics. The active-matrix displays, active devices, and photovoltaics based on thin-film technologies are one of the key devices for facilitating the IT、IoT and sustainable society. There is no doubt that importance of the devices will emphasize well into the future.

  I believe that AM-FPD'24 will give all attendees much solutions for achieving both sustainable and smart information society. I heartily welcome all of you and am looking forward to seeing you at Kyoto on July 2 - 5 in 2024.
