SMPTE has opened the call for technical paper proposals for its annual conference. Rebranded as the SMPTE Media Technology Summit 2022, it is being held October 24-27, at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. SMPTE will also accept proposals for participation in the conference’s popular 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 world’s premier forum for the exploration of current and future media technology, content creation, image and sound, and the allied arts and sciences. 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. General topic areas include:
Digital cinema and advancements
Streaming, artificial intelligence in content creation, media in the cloud, image related computing, media supply chain, research, and academic work
Technical leadership and industry change
Future of media
Esports and gaming
SMPTE Storytellers are short personal stories that highlight the more human side of the SMPTE community. Ideally, these stories are motivational, inspiring, compelling, personal, visionary, or some combination of these.
