Engineering Award Nomination Form
The Association of Public Radio Engineers is now accepting proposals for presentations for the Public Radio Engineering Conference (PREC) to be held April 11th & 12th, 2024 with both in-person and virtual attendance options.
PREC is an educational conference. We are looking for technical presentations that are neither marketing, nor promoting a specific product, company, or service. The attendees are highly technical and attend the conference to find innovative ideas, solutions to problems, and educational enrichment to carry back to their stations. Our goal is to offer a variety of presentations based upon peer knowledge & experiences, manufacturer solutions, and educational papers that will benefit the public radio broadcast engineering community.
TOPICS: Including but not limited to - Emerging technology & techniques; RF theory and innovations of antennas & transmitters; audio production techniques and solutions; operations including automation and traffic systems; STLs and studio links; console technology; SNMP; budget planning; legal issues & compliance and advocacy; virtualization; facility upgrades; remote studio operation & production; digital services including video, streaming, podcasting, news coverage, and more. Presentations from members about major projects and project planning are also welcome.
DETAILS: Session slots are typically 30-45 minutes with an additional 10 minute Q&A period at the end of the presentation.
WHEN/WHERE: Las Vegas, NV at the Tuscany Suites, April 11-12, 2024.
SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL: To submit your proposal, fill out the form found here:
https://forms.gle/W8ss5NqthZuZ8PC66. It will be reviewed by the PREC Presentations Committee. We are accepting proposals through January 5th, 2024, or until all slots are filled with approved presentations.
PLAN FOR IN PERSON & VIRTUAL ATTENDANCE: It is our intention for PREC 2024 to be an IN-PERSON event with an option for virtual attendance. PREC’s virtual option has been well attended and we received lots of positive feedback from attendees. In person is better, but our virtual option is a close second! Members have already indicated that they would like a virtual option to save time and money for their station. Please consider how your proposed presentation will be received by our virtual attendees.
While many of our attendees may be virtual, it is expected that our presenters will be in-person. Some virtual accommodations may be available in extreme circumstances, but presenters should expect to be at the Tuscany suites on April 11-12, 2024.
