        In this talk I will describe a short history of flexible electronic displays, some of the technical approaches towards achieving flexibility using both silicon-based and organic-based materials, with particular focus on manufacturing issues associated with flexible electronic displays.
        Despite the fact that plastic-based electronic displays were demonstrated around 30 years ago, there are still few commercial examples of flexible electronic displays. Therefore, I will also discuss some of the issues that have slowed adoption of flexible displays in the marketplace, and some technical and market challenges to enable these technologies to flourish.
