The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE), a subsidiary of CableLabs, today opened its call for papers seeking presentation proposals for technical sessions to be conducted during SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2023, set to take place Monday, October 16 through Thursday, October 19 in Denver, Colorado.
While any topic of interest to the cable telecommunications engineering community is eligible for submission, the committee in a press release said it "has particular interest in forward-looking technologies and solutions that will help power the industry’s 10G initiative and move its technical foundation forward."
In addition to English submissions, due to a growing global audience and interest in Spanish sessions, SCTE said it is especially seeking presentations delivered in Spanish, showcasing Latin American concepts, technology, and innovation.
The SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2023 Program Committee, chaired by Noel Dempsey, SVP of field operations at Charter Communications, will review all technical abstracts.
SCTE is seeking subject matter experts in nine key areas for Expo's Fall Technical Forum. Areas of focus include:
- 10G Wireline Networks
- Wireless Access Networks and Mobility
- Security and Privacy
- Operational and Network Transformation
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- Energy Management and Sustainability
- Wi-Fi, IoT, Home Networking, and Residential Services
- Workforce Learning & Development
- Construction and Network Planning
Abstracts on the above topics will be given priority, and other topics addressing cable industry technical, engineering, and business issues will be considered.
Per SCTE, "Each abstract submission is limited to 2,000 characters. Submitted papers should be either technical papers that describe new and emerging technologies, or operational practices that provide field guidance."
Abstracts addressing a near-term solution (within the next three years) will be given priority.
Each SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2023 abstract submission should be entered separately at expo.scte.org/callforpapers by April 21, 2023.
Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE, commented:
"Cable-Tec Expo has grown into the preeminent venue for thought leadership, engineering innovation, and pioneering business insights. At Expo 2023 we will celebrate 40 years of bringing industry professionals together to connect, collaborate and innovate, reuniting a global audience with industry pioneers and innovative vendors to, once again, preview the emerging technologies and applications transforming the industry and reveal what’s next in the evolution of broadband.”
