Attention ATSC members: The Broadcast Engineering Conference (BEC) will be held at the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas next April. The Call for Papers is now open and will close on Oct. 18.
The six-day conference attracts the world’s leaders in broadcast technology, and has been doing so since 1946. Always including lots of ATSC member organizations, presenters deliver technical papers that are then published in NAB’s prestigious Broadcast Engineering Conference Proceedings.
Selected papers are eligible for the Best Paper Award, honoring the author(s) of a paper of exceptional merit. If you’d like to submit a technical paper proposal for consideration, NAB suggests targeting the likely audience of broadcast engineers and technicians, engineering consultants, contract engineers, broadcast equipment manufacturers, distributors, R&D engineers plus anyone specifically interested in the latest broadcast technologies.
Paper presentations are limited to 30 minutes in length, including 5-10 minutes of audience Questions & Answers. Proposals should be no more than 200 words in length and explain precisely what attendees will learn.
Papers promoting company products or services will not be accepted, but papers explaining the underlying technologies used in broadcast products or services will be considered.
Full manuscripts of the accepted paper will be due via email in .PDF format by Jan. 20, 2014 in order to meet publication deadline. Papers must be at least 2,500 words and educational in nature.
