SMPTE – METexpo21 Issues Call for Papers

The organisers of SMPTE’s METexpo 21 (18 to 20 August 2021) have issued a call for conference papers. METexpo is the TechExpo Conference & Exhibition of SMPTE’s Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific Island Section.

Papers Chair Ian Fellowes says the organisers are looking for  papers covering technology, production, creative and management challenges in broadcasting (radio, television, podcasting and internet delivery), film, and production, along with topics that connect to the related, adjacent and consumer industries.

“Since 1984 SMPTE has been the trusted event for the media technology and production industries in our region, and we are the home of media professionals, technologists and engineers. We take a broad approach because the next game-changer could be anywhere,” says Fellowes. “For METexpo 21, we want your ideas and thoughts. We know you have ideas that need to be heard, and we can give you the audience. We’re back at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Darling Harbour, Sydney, and we’re taking all the steps to ensure that an event will happen.”

The program will feature individual sessions, panels, keynotes from thought leaders, and the exhibition and showcase.

“Based on everything we know; we’re putting energy into planning a solid face-to-face event. We have plans in place to cater for telepresence contribution,” says Ian Fellowes. “Our delegates are the industry’s international technology thought leaders and decision makers, people who lead and drive the evolving motion-imaging and media industries. And further, we have always attracted and catered to the practitioners, creatives and technologists who make the industry run. You have a broad canvas to work with.

All papers and presentations accepted become eligible for consideration for the SMPTE Journal. If your proposal is accepted, you will be required to provide a suitable technical manuscript to accompany the final presentation material.

“The first step is an abstract is just an idea and a proposal,” says Conference Chair Fellowes. “Through the EDAS platform, you can submit a topic heading, paper title, and a short synopsis (50-100 words). If it’s relevant, tell us how you might want to deliver (presentation, panel, video clip, or technical demonstration), and provide a brief description of anything else important about the proposed paper’s content.”

Abstract deadline: April 16, 2021.
