(Sydney, Australia--February 18, 2015) The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers® , the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, entertainment, and technology industries, today announced that the SMPTE Australia Section has extended the call-for-proposals deadline for the biennial SMPTE Australia Conference & Exhibition (SMPTE15), Persistence of Vision — Defining the Future.
The new deadline for proposal submissions is midnight, 1 March, via https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=18525.
SMPTE15, titled "Persistence of Vision — Defining the Future," will extend from 14-17 July at the Hordern Pavilion at Moore Park in Sydney. The three-day conference and four-day exhibition will focus on linking the cutting edge of development with practical solutions for problems facing today's media industries. As previously announced, Netflix Director of Global Content Partners Operations Chris Fetner is scheduled to deliver the keynote. Fetner will discuss the global media marketplace and the technologies shaping decision-making and growth at Netflix.
"The Australian Conference is well-respected for its technical component, and the proposals we have already received for 2015 will allow us to put together a very strong program addressing the topical concepts and issues that impact the motion-imaging industry," said David Wheeler, chair of the SMPTE Australia Section Conference Committee. "By extending the deadline, we are providing additional time for those who have ideas that would merit inclusion in the program or who have been considering submitting but have not yet done so."
Proposed papers for SMPTE15 must be informational and must address technical theory, research, innovation, application, or practice specific to any of the evolving technologies associated with the media technology industry. Student papers and case studies are strongly encouraged. Papers that are commercial or promotional in nature will not be considered, nor will those that already have been published. Workshop and whole-session concepts should relate to the general theme of the event and should be demonstrably relevant to the careers and professional lives of delegates.
Topics for SMPTE15 papers include 4K/8K, ultrahigh-definition television (UHDTV) and the quest for higher dynamic range (HDR) and colour gamut; postproduction; broadcast infrastructure, 3G, Internet Protocol (IP), and file-based workflows; cinematography and image acquisition; fractional frame rates; psychophysics and the human vision system; asset management, storage, and archiving; the "Internet of everything"; the second screen; alternative content; event cinema; audio/video processing and compression; content security; new techniques in audio; content distribution; display technology; advanced image processing; mobile, IP, and future distribution technologies; cinema technology; immersive sound; and restoration and preservation.
