SCTE seeking proposals for Cable-Tec Expo ’08 technical workshops
The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers  (SCTE) is seeking proposals for technical workshops that will be conducted at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2008, to be held June 24–27 in Philadelphia.
The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1, and they should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org . The SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2008 Program Subcommittee will announce its selections by March 14.
The complete Expo ’08 Call for Papers (found here ) lists specifics for each of the preferred topics: the broadcast DTV transition, business services case studies, servicing the evolving home environment, OSS/BSS, competitive platforms, advanced advertising platforms, OpenCable Application Platform, supporting and expanding the HFC Network, and triple-play services over HFC.
Proposals addressing the specific topics and delivery formats described in the Call for Papers will be given priority. The Cable-Tec Program Subcommittee – chaired by Marwan Fawaz, EVP and CTO of Charter Communications  – is particularly interested in proposals that address today’s technical and engineering issues and opportunities from a here-and-now perspective.
The subcommittee will only consider papers that present technical solutions to these issues and opportunities.
