The event will take place Nov. 8–10 at the Kennedy Space Center’s Astronaut Memorial Foundation Center for Space Education in Titusville, Fla. Attendees will be able tour the main Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center as well as the space shuttle Atlantis exhibit.

The BTS technical program has sessions on Tuesday Nov. 8 that focus on Next-Gen TV topics.

Thursday Nov. 10 concludes the event with morning sessions about advances in broadcast transmission and tower technology that apply to both radio and TV. Speakers in that block include Tom Silliman, Gary Cavell and Paul Peyla.

Full conference registration is $580 for IEEE members, $700 for others. There are one-day passes as well as discounts for students, life members and certain others. Info is on the reg page.
