NAB Show Calls for Papers and Proposals
Is it that time already?
The National Association of Broadcasters is sending out the
call for technical papers or sessions proposals for next year’s big show,
April 6–11, 2013, in Las Vegas.
A release helpfully lays
out: “Submissions must be relevant to the creation and distribution of all
media and filmed entertainment content, or address emerging trends and their
impact on the media business.”
Planned conferences for
the 2013 show are Broadcast Engineering, Broadcast Management, Cloud Computing,
Creative Master Series, Disruptive Media, Military and Government Summit along
with General and Super Session Series. A release adds, “Event organizers will
consider proposals on new media for multiple platforms, new business models,
and the impact of new technologies and marketplace realities on existing
businesses and creative processes.”
All sorts of
instructions, suggestions and explanations can be found here. The
deadline is Oct. 19.
The NAB also says that it is
looking for nominations for its Program Advisory Group, a group of “industry
leaders and subject matter experts who provide feedback on overall conference
design and suggest new areas of programming to address the evolving media and
entertainment landscape.” Nominations may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
