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,
redistribution of broadcast signals; AM, FM and TV transmitter and antenna
systems; tests and measurements; cable and 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; digital TV and digital radio
reception issues and new technologies; ATSC and other broadcast standards
developments and broadcast spectrum issues — repacking and sharing.
according to a release, the IEEE is soliciting proposals for half-day tutorials
Panel topics could
include “technology, application, business, and policy-related issues and
opportunities for the broadcasting industry.” Those too require a
500–1,000-word proposal submitted to email@example.com. Author contact information
must be included with all proposals — full name, affiliation, mailing address
