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 an 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, besides 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.”
The ISDH 2018 will be held in the University of Aveiro, at Aveiro City, Portugal.
Leonardo's Executive Editor Roger Malina will be presenting on the Leonardo Day at the Symposium.
University of Aveiro through Fábrica Ciência Viva Science Centre joins to Leonardo/ISAST to celebrate its 50th Anniversary. The programme includes:
- Visit to the exhibition “Art in Holography - light, space & time”
- Discussion Panel: “Leonardo 50th Anniversary Celebrations” with Roger Malina, Jonathan Ross, Isabel Azevedo and Pearl John as invited speakers
- Visit to the educational holography exhibition “Light Windows”
Visit to Fábrica Ciência Viva Science Centre
- Music with DJ
- Typical Portuguese food
- Leonardo Anniversary Cake with champagne
Come celebrate with us!

50 Years of Celebrating the Community
Almost half a century ago, kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina set out to solve the needs of a community of artists and scientists working across disciplines by using the “new media” of the time: offset print publishing. As a groundbreaking, innovative venture, Leonardo represented a unique vision: to serve as an international channel of communication among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. The result was Leonardo, an academic journal for artists with the peer-review rigor of a scientific journal. For 50 years, Leonardo has been the definitive publication for artist-academics, and the field has gained momentum in recent years.
Leonardo's anniversary celebrations are made possible by our international partners and led by the 50th Anniversary Committee Chair Nina Czegledy.
