SMPTE Renames Annual Conference, Opens Call for Papers
SMPTE has rebranded its annual conference as the SMPTE Media Technology Summit; in addition, it has opened its call for technical paper proposals for its conference and proposals for participation in the conference’s SMPTE Storytellers series.
“As we return to face-to-face conferences, the SMPTE Media Technology Summit 2022 will no doubt be prominent on the calendars of professionals, technologists, and engineers,” said Polly Hickling, education director at SMPTE and course leader, media technology at Solent University. “There have been great advancements in technology during a time where we have had limited opportunity to discuss what we’ve been doing, so this opportunity to discuss cutting-edge research, insight, and technology will be welcomed by many. The SMPTE Summit is an exciting chance to connect with everything they love about the technology and the people shaping our industry.”
Authors of proposals selected by the SMPTE Summit 2022 program committee will have the opportunity to present at the 2022 event. Proposed papers must be informational and must address technical theory, research, innovation, application, or practice specific to any of the evolving technologies associated with the media and entertainment industry. Paper proposals are due April 30 and can be submitted here.
SMPTE Storytellers are short personal stories that highlight the more human side of the SMPTE community. These stories should be motivational, inspiring, compelling, personal, visionary, or some combination of these. Anyone interested in becoming a SMPTE Storyteller at the SMPTE Summit 2022 should send their name, job title, and 1,000 words or fewer about the main points of their story to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15.
The SMPTE Media Technology Summit 2022 will take place Oct. 24-27, at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles.
