The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers has set an April 4 deadline for technical paper proposals for the this year’s Cable-Tec Expo, set to run September 22-25 in Denver.
SCTE said its programming committee for the annual tech confab is seeking papers that address technologies, best practices, workforce training and case studies in three key subject areas:
- Customer Experience—Improving the customer experience through new technologies and techniques; defining and redefining the connected home; and improvements in installation experiences and operations;
- Next-Generation Video—Transitioning to the all-IP video network; portability of services; Ultra HD formats; High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC); and next-gen user interfaces; and
- Next-Generation Networks: Gigabit and Beyond—Access network architectures and technologies; virtualized-, cloud-, and software-defined networks; and energy and event management.
SCTE is asking for one-page abstracts (300 words maximum) identifying the central theme the proposal addresses.
SCTE said abstracts will be reviewed by the organization’s’ Program Committee, chaired by Tony Werner, executive vice president and CTO of Comcast. The Committee will announce selected abstracts by May 16, 2014.
