The Laser Display and Lighting Conference (LDC) is an international conference on laser displays, laser lighting, and related technologies. The 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th, 7th LDC were held in Yokohama, Japan in 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017 2018 respectively, and the 3rd in Taichung, Taiwan in 2014, the 5th in Jena, Germany in 2016. The 8th Laser Display and Lighting Conference (LDC2019) will be held on April, 23th - 26th, 2019 in Yokohama, Japan, at Pacifico Yokohama.

The LDC2019 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 is sponsored by the Optical Society of Japan in cooperation with several academic societies and associations.
