Student Paper Submissions

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers® (SMPTE®), the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, entertainment, and technology industries, announced a call for papers for a special student issue of the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal.

“Education is one of SMPTE’s three pillars, and there is no better way to demonstrate our commitment to education than by recognizing and supporting students, who are the future leaders of our industry and our future members,” said Pat Griffis, education vice president at SMPTE. “We look forward to reading the submissions every year because they highlight the insight and vision of up-and-coming innovators in the field, which gives us all an indication of where the industry is headed.”

Students in the field of motion pictures and television with an emphasis on technology are encouraged to submit papers on technical, engineering, and scientific developments in motion pictures, television, and related fields. Chosen papers will be published in the November/December student issue of the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal.

Each paper must describe work done by the author as a student, and each paper must address technical theory, research, innovation, application, or practice specific to any of the evolving technologies associated with the media technology industry. Papers that are commercial or promotional in nature will not be considered, nor will those that have already been published. The deadline is Sept. 1, and all papers will be reviewed by the SMPTE Board of Editors.

Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts in Microsoft Word via e-mail or on CDROM. For further information, please contact the editor.
