SMPTE Extends Deadline to Submit Papers for Presentation at 2013 Conference

Deadline now set at July 19

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers has extended the deadline to July 19 to submit papers for consideration for presentation at its 2013 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, which is Oct. 22-24 in Hollywood, Calif.
The presentation of technical papers at SMPTE’s annual conference provides industry members with an opportunity to present new theories, research, innovation, applications and practices, the society said. The submission of student papers is encouraged, the organization adds.
Some of the many technical topics of interest include “over-the-top” technologies, content creation using Internet or other nontraditional technologies and Web-based and broadcast services, according to the society. Other areas include environmental sustainability, mobile technologies and services, 4K, object-oriented audio, next-generation media formats, display-technology trends, the migration of facilities to IT and advances in advertising technologies, the organization said.
Papers that are commercial or promotional in nature will not be considered, nor will those that already have been published, the society said. In addition, student papers are strongly encouraged.
A complete list of possible topics, as well as instructions on submitting a topic heading, paper title and one-page abstract, are available at SMPTE’s website.
In addition, SMPTE has scheduled its pre-conference symposium for Oct. 21 with the topic “Next-Gen Image Formats: More, Better or Faster Pixels?”.
