SMPTE Announces 2017 Student Paper Award, Scholarship, and Edition of SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal
The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers(R) (SMPTE(R)), the organization whose standards work has supported a century of technological advances in entertainment technology, is now accepting entries for the 2017 Student Paper Award, the student edition of the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal, and the Louis F. Wolf Jr. Memorial Scholarship. These programs and events give students a variety of opportunities to explore the motion-imaging field and to connect with their peers as well as industry leaders while showcasing their creative and technical talents.
 
"SMPTE is fully committed to supporting students in pursuing their interest in the motion-imaging field, be it in research, technical innovation, or content creation," said SMPTE Education Vice President Richard Welsh. "This year we've made it more accessible than ever for students to get papers published in the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal. We're looking forward to seeing some awesome work put forward by students from around the world!"
 
Student Paper Award and Student Edition of the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal
The Student Paper Award recognizes an outstanding paper, prepared and submitted by a SMPTE student member, that addresses a technical phase of motion pictures, television, photographic instrumentation, or their closely allied arts and sciences. The winning paper is published in the Journal, and the winning student receives a full conference registration to the SMPTE 2017 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition in Hollywood, California, with recognition at the Society's Honors & Awards Ceremony.
 
This year, students may submit the same paper for both the Student Paper Award and the 2017 student edition of the Journal, which recognizes the author and the institution at which the work was done. 
 
There is no required technical level for the papers. Possible topics include ultra-high-definition (UHD); color and dynamic range management; the future of media distribution; media infrastructure; workflow management; cloud and virtualized media processing; image acquisition and processing; content management, storage, restoration, and preservation; cinema processing and projection technology; human perception of images or sound; quality and monitoring of images and sound; compression; security; audio techniques; advances in display technologies; virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR), as well as 360° video; and machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) in content creation. Further details on possible topics and submission requirements are available at www.smpte.org/student. 
 
Louis F. Wolf Jr. Memorial Scholarship
The Louis F. Wolf Jr. Memorial Scholarship offers $5,000 toward the cost of tuition at the student's educational institution. The scholarship is open to SMPTE student members who are full-time undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in an accredited two- or four-year college or university. Applicants must be majoring in a program emphasizing the engineering, science, advanced technologies, or fundamental theories associated with motion-imaging, sound, metadata, and workflows consistent with SMPTE's field of interest.
