APRE Accepting Proposals for Presentations at PREC 2019

Back to top

The PREC is the conference for Engineering and Operations. Are you doing something you want to share with the Engineering/Ops community?


The Association of Public Radio Engineers is now accepting proposals for presentations for the newly expanded 2019 Public Radio Engineering Conference (PREC) to be held April 4th, 5th, and 6th. Leveraging the success of recent PRECs and the increase in high quality presentation proposals, the 2019 conference has been expanded to two and a half days, now including a half day on Saturday. This popular conference is in its 19th year and is attended by public radio engineers, operations staff, production personnel, and broadcast management.

We are looking for presentations that can share knowledge and experience when starting a project, producing a show, IT systems, or anything broadcast related.  Our goal is to mesh these with manufacturer solutions and educational papers to complement the learning process.  We are looking for presentations technical in nature that are not selling nor promoting a specific product but will educate our audience.  Our audience is highly technical and is looking for solutions to problems, educational enrichment, and innovative ideas to bring back to their stations. 


TIMELINE:  We are accepting proposals through December 3rd, 2018.  We will send out acceptance notices by the end of December 2018.

TOPICS:  Including but not limited to - 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; virtualization; facility upgrades; emerging technology; digital services including video, streaming, podcasting, news coverage and more.

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 at the Tuscany Suites, April 4-6th 2018, the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday prior to NAB.

CONTACT:  You may send your presentation proposals to presentations@apre.us where it will be reviewed by the presentations committee for possible selection.  Please visit apre.us for conference information.

We look forward to hearing from you!
