Stereoscopic Displays and Applications

Stereoscopic Displays and Applications (SD&A) is an academic technical conference, founded in 1990, in the field of IS&T and SPIE.


SD&A is an academic technical conference dedicated to stereoscopic imaging topics. Its backbone is the technical presentations, which are all accompanied by a technical paper published in the conference proceedings by SPIE Press (in cooperation with IS&T). Alongside the technical sessions, the conference has its own keynote, a popular demonstration session (where 20-30 stereoscopic displays can be seen in one place at one time), the 3D theater (where the latest stereoscopic content is shown), and a discussion forum.


The technical proceedings are published jointly by SPIE and IS&T. Over 1100 technical papers have been published over the history of the SD&A conference. The full list of conference proceedings, including a compilation DVD-ROM (1990-2009), is listed at the SD&A website.

The DVD-ROM compilation "Stereoscopic Displays and Applications 1990-2009: A Complete 20-Year Retrospective - and The Engineering Reality of Virtual Reality 1994-2009 (CDP51)" released in 2010 represents a technical knowledge base containing the complete technical record of the Stereoscopic Displays and Applications conference (1990-2009), The Engineering Reality of Virtual Reality conference (1994-2009), and papers from a selection of ten other 3D related SPIE conferences (1977-1989) predating SD&A. The disc contains 1260 individual technical papers – 816 from the Stereoscopic Displays and Applications conference, 223 from The Engineering Reality of Virtual Reality conference, and 221 papers from the SPIE 3D conferences prior to SD&A.


SD&A was founded in 1990 by John O. Merritt and Scott Fisher, and has been held annually since. Holography pioneer Stephen Benton was also an SD&A conference chair from 2000 until his death in 2003.

From 1990 to 1993, papers from the SD&A conference were published in its own proceedings volume. From 1994, the papers from the SD&A conference were co-published with papers from The Engineering Reality of Virtual Reality conference (which was co-located with SD&A) in a volume series titled Stereoscopic Displays and Virtual Reality Systems. From 2008, SD&A went back to the publication of papers in its own proceedings volume.
