The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers’ (IEEE) Broadcast Technology Society (BTS) has issued a call for research papers to be presented at the organization’s fall symposium scheduled for Oct. 17-19, 2012 in Alexandria, Va.
Broadcasters, technology developers, researchers, service providers and equipment suppliers are invited to submit abstracts by May 15, 2012.
Suggested topics for consideration include “mobile DTV systems;” “broadcast spectrum issues (television repacking and sharing, unlicensed device white space operation);” “Advanced Television Systems Committee and other broadcast standards development;” “transmitter and antenna systems;” “cable and satellite transmission and interconnection with broadcasters, testing and measurement;” “transmission and propagation;” and “digital television and radio reception issues.”
The BTS is also seeking proposals for half-day broadcast technology tutorial sessions that are scheduled to be part of the organization’s symposium. Potential presenters are asked to submit 500 to 1,000 word abstracts via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
