2017 HPA Tech Retreat Issues Call For Proposals

News Image
The HPA has issued a Call for Proposals for the 2017 HPA Tech Retreat, 21 – 24 February.

The Main Program, which will be presented from 22 – 24 February, is for marketing-free content. Mark Schubin, who will orchestrate the Main Program, said: "Topics may include anything related to moving images and associated sounds, including (but not limited to) augmented reality, bit-rate reduction, the contrast-sensitivity function, digital rights management, energy use for HDR TV sets, format conversion, gigapixel imaging, higher frame rates, immersive-sound, just-valuable-differences, kleptomania in distribution, multi-language subtitling, near-field communications, open-source processing, psychophysics, quantum entanglement for zero latency, retinal (frame-free) imaging, soundfields, terabit transmission, ultra-high-whatever, virtual reality, wider color gamut, x-rays in 8K, young interpupillary distances, and zoom lenses for 32K imaging. Anything from scene to seen and gear to ear is fair game."

Submissions for the Main Program are short and informal, while presentations are around 30 minutes in duration, including set-up and Q&A (if any). Longer or shorter presentations can sometimes be accommodated. Panels are typically longer, and submissions for panels should include the panelists and moderator.

The deadline to submit main program proposals is Friday, 28 October 2016. Proposals must come from the proposed presenter and should be sent directly to Mark Schubin at tvmark@earthlink.net. Decisions are expected by the beginning of December.

In addition, a Call for Proposals for Breakfast Roundtables is now open. Roundtables begin at 7.30am each morning during the retreat.

Schubin commented: "The Breakfast Roundtables can include marketing information. Table moderators are free to teach, preach, ask, call-to-task, sell, or do anything else that keeps conversation flowing for an hour. The HPA Tech Retreat Roundtables are an extremely popular aspect of the Tech Retreat, and attendees and experts alike relish the opportunity to dig in, debate and discuss an array of topics."

There is no vetting process for Breakfast Roundtables, and all Breakfast Roundtable moderators must be registered for the retreat. Proposals for Breakfast Roundtables should be submitted by their proposed moderators to Mark Schubin at tvmark@earthlink.net. There is no deadline, but once the maximum number of tables is reached (32 per day), no more can be accepted. Proposals should list the desired day(s) and the desired topic(s).

Further details for the 2017 HPA Tech Retreat will be announced in the forthcoming weeks.
