Streaming Media Europe 2013 Speaking Submissions Due 28 February
This year's event, called Streaming Forum 2013, will be held in London in June, so get your speaking proposals in soon. We're especially interested in case studies from the corporate, education, sport, and entertainment verticals.
The signal-to-noise ratio surrounding the business and technology of online video and audio has become almost unbearable in recent years, but Streaming Media Europe has always held fast that our role is to be the filter of the industry, helping you focus on the issues and topics that not only matter today but will continue to matter in the future. In keeping with that philosophy, we're moving this year's conference from the noisy autumn to 18-19 June at the Park Plaza Victoria London, which a short walk from Victoria Station and is more centrally located in London than our venues in recent years. We're also renaming it the "Streaming Forum, brought to you by Streaming Media Europe." We feel that better reflects the role that the Forum plays: a top-level networking conference and information exchange for the innovators and decision-makers of the industry.
It's the speakers that define our event, and I'm pleased to announce that the Call for Speakers for Streaming Forum 2013 is now open. So if you've got an idea for a thought-provoking panel, an insightful paper presentation, or an innovative "how-to" session, submit your proposal now, before it's too late-the deadline for submissions is Thursday 28 February. In particular, we're looking for speakers who can share their expertise and vision in the following key hot spots:
- Encoding and Transcoding
- Formats, Protocols, and Standards (especially HEVC and MPEG DASH)
- Live Event Webcasting
- Online Video Delivery Infrastructure
- Corporate Communications
- Education & Training
- Media & Entertainment
If you've got questions, or want to run some ideas past us before making a formal submission, don't hesitate to contact me at erics (at) streamingmedia.com.
Kicking off with a keynote by Netflix and its content and digital supply chain partners, the new Streaming Forum offers 30 panel discussions, how-to sessions, and case studies from the likes of Google, HBO Europe, Lancaster University, Topshop, BBC, Channel 4, the UK National Health Service, and more
