The officials overseeing the 61st Annual IEEE Broadcast Symposium scheduled for October 2011 have extended the deadline to May 15 for filing abstracts “for timely and relevant technical papers relating to all aspects of broadcast technology.”

The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society sponsors the symposium, which is scheduled to be held Oct. 19-21 in Alexandria, Va., and symposium organizers “invite participation from broadcasters, researchers, developers, service providers, and suppliers of technology, equipment, systems, and consumer devices, as well as content originators and distributors.”

Abstracts should clearly explain the subject, originality and relevance, and all papers that are selected must be presented at the symposium by the authors or their designated presenters. Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be notified by July 1, and full papers will be due Oct. 3. In addition, authors will be entitled to register for the symposium at a reduced rate, and at least one author linked to a paper must be registered by Oct. 3. Potential topic areas are:

  • • 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, re-distribution of broadcast signals
  • • AM, FM, and TV transmitter and antenna systems
  • • Tests and measurements
  • • Cable & 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
  • • DTV & IBOC reception issues and new technologies
  • • ATSC & other broadcast standards developments
  • • Broadcast spectrum issues – re-packing

Approximately 25 minutes will be provided for each paper presentation, including questions and answers, the statement says.
