I know the year is young, but flash ahead for a moment to Friday, October 16. You are boarding your flight home from SCTE Cable-Tec Expo® 2015 in New Orleans. Packed away for the journey is the Expo 2015 Proceedings thumb drive containing all of the event’s technical workshop presentations—including the one that you authored and presented earlier that week at the show.
Imagine the supreme satisfaction of having shared your technical insights as a subject matter expert during one of the technical workshops, which always are rife with compelling ideas and solutions—one of the hallmarks of SCTE’s flagship event.
In order to have a chance at making that contribution and enjoying that sense of accomplishment, I encourage you to submit a technical abstract in answer to the Expo 2015 Call for Papers. The program committee, chaired by Liberty Global’s Balan Nair, is looking for, in particular, proposals that speak to the following areas:
- Business-to-business: driving revenue
- Wireless services: from 4G to LTE and beyond
- Wireline access: evolving the HFC access network
- Next-generation services: leveraging all-IP, cloud, and apps
Consider some of the technologies in play in within the aforementioned areas: SDN/NFV; MoCA®; Ethernet; RFoG; DOCSIS® 3.1; DCAS/DRM; 4K TV; cybersecurity; and going beyond RDK.
Take time to read through the call for papers and submit your proposals by Tuesday, February 17 for consideration by the committee. The call document contains the submission instructions and link.
If you don’t already own the Expo 2014 Proceedings thumb drive, consider adding it to your professional development library; reviewing the papers and presentations from 2014 will give you a handle on the kinds of papers and presentations Expo is known for…and could inspire ideas for you to submit by February 17.
