The Laser Display and Lighting Conference (LDC) is an international conference on laser displays, laser lighting, and related technologies. The 1st, 2nd, and 4th LDC were held in Yokohama, Japan in 2012, 2013, 2015 respectively, and the 3rd in Taichung, Taiwan in 2014, the 5th in Jena, Germany in 2016. The 6th Laser Display and Lighting Conference (LDC 2017) will be held on April, 19th - 21th, 2017 in Yokohama, Japan, at Pacifico Yokohama.

The LDC 2017 is intended to provide a central forum for the update and review of scientific and technical information on laser display and lighting covering a wide range of fields from fundamental research to systems and applications. The conference will be sponsored by the Optical Society of Japan in cooperation with several academic societies and associations.
