Submissions for proposals of technical papers is open for the Society Motion Picture and Television Engineers 2019 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition October 21-26, at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites in Los Angeles. Abstracts must be submitted online no later than April 30. 

Held annually by SMPTE, the annual technical conference is the world's premier forum for exploring the evolution of media and entertainment technology. SMPTE 2019 will feature a high-tech exhibit hall, three days of technical sessions, and enhanced networking events, all of which bring attendees unparalleled opportunities for professional development, relationship building, and “mind sharing.”

Authors of manuscript proposals selected by the SMPTE 2019 program committee will have the opportunity to present at the event and network with the industry’s most esteemed technology thought leaders and engineering executives. Program sessions will address advancements in current technology, plus future-looking developments in media technology, content creation, image and sound, and the allied arts and sciences. 
Proposed papers must be informational, high quality, and address technical theory, research, innovation, application, or practice specific to any of the evolving technologies associated with the media and entertainment industry. 

Preference will be given to forward-thinking proposals and particularly to research-based proposals addressing cutting-edge technology. The program committee is also interested in the perspective of the next generation of storytellers and industry leaders, and student papers are strongly encouraged. 

Papers that are of a commercial or promotional nature will not be considered.
