Would-be presenters are asked to formulate an extended abstract of 500–1,000 words on their proposed subject and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All broadcast technology aspects are open, though the IEEE is particularly interested in the following short list: digital radio and television systems: terrestrial, cable, satellite, Internet, wireless; mobile DTV systems (all aspects, both transmission and reception); technical issues associated with the termination of analog television broadcasting; transmission, propagation, reception, redistribution of broadcast signals; AM, FM and TV transmitter and antenna systems; tests and measurements; cable and satellite interconnection with terrestrial broadcasters; transport stream issues – ancillary services; unlicensed device operation in TV white spaces; advanced technologies and systems for emerging broadcasting applications; digital TV and digital radio reception issues and new technologies; ATSC and other broadcast standards developments and broadcast spectrum issues — repacking and sharing.
In addition, according to a release, the IEEE is soliciting proposals for half-day tutorials and panels.
Panel topics could include “technology, application, business, and policy-related issues and opportunities for the broadcasting industry.” Those too require a 500–1,000-word proposal submitted to email@example.com. Author contact information must be included with all proposals — full name, affiliation, mailing address and telephone number.
