Authors of manuscript proposals selected by the SMPTE 2019 program committee will have the opportunity to present at the event and network with the industry’s most esteemed technology thought leaders and engineering executives during the world’s premier forum for the exploration of media and entertainment technology. Program sessions will address advancements in current technology, plus future-looking developments in media technology, content creation, image and sound, and the allied arts and sciences.
Following, SMPTE will publish accepted manuscripts to the SMPTE Digital Library hosted on the IEEE Xplore platform, and video of each paper presentation will be posted to the Society's YouTube channel. Submitted manuscripts will also go through peer review for possible publication in the award-winning SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal.
Proposed papers must be informational, high-quality, and address technical theory, research, innovation, application, or practice specific to any of the evolving technologies associated with the media and entertainment industry. Preference will be given to forward-thinking proposals and particularly to research-based proposals addressing cutting-edge technology. The program committee is also interested in the perspective of the next generation of storytellers and industry leaders, and student papers are strongly encouraged. Papers that are of a commercial or promotional nature will not be considered.
A listing of potential topics, along with instructions on how to submit an abstract, is available online.
Final proposal selection and notification to authors will occur no later than June 15. Selected presenters must be able to commit to providing an electronic version of the final technical manuscript to the Society no later than Sept. 20, to ensure SMPTE has time to process papers for the conference.
The annual technical conference is a forum for exploring the evolution of media and entertainment technology. SMPTE 2019 will feature a high-tech exhibit hall, three days of technical sessions, and enhanced networking events, all of which bring attendees unparalleled opportunities for professional development, relationship building, and “mind sharing.” Exhibitors and sponsors of SMPTE 2019 are provided with unique opportunities to showcase their latest products and technologies while increasing brand visibility.
