Call for IBC2018 Technical Papers Submission is Now Open

IBC has announced that it is now accepting synopsis submissions for its Technical Papers sessions at the IBC2018 Conference. All submissions are peer-reviewed by a panel of professional experts and will be published on IBC365.

For over 50 years, IBC has been a forum for the unveiling, explanation, exploration and dissemination of the very latest concepts in media technology. Its published proceedings are a collected history of broadcasting and media technology written by engineers and scientists who have personally shaped today's exciting and diverse industry.

The selected 2018 Technical Papers will not form part of a single conference stream, as in previous years. Instead, they will be integrated with business and strategic presentations within specific themes throughout the conference. This will bring new technologies closer to the attention of more delegates, and will ensure these delegates have the opportunity to hear first-hand presentations from the world's brightest innovators and researchers.

IBC looks forward to receiving proposals for Technical Papers dealing with any novel aspect of media technology. All submissions are peer-reviewed by a panel of professional experts and will be published on IBC365. Papers accepted for presentation at the IBC Conference will also have a chance of winning the Best Conference Paper Award, presented at the IBC Awards.

The scope of media technology continues to diversify well beyond the traditional production and distribution of audio-visual content. Today the industry embraces such developments as: machine learning (AI), VR, AR, mobility, immersivity, user psychology, gesture recognising interfaces, blockchain, autonomous production, business data analytics, and the tracking and generation of sports data, to list just a few. 

IBC is especially interested in up-and-coming areas such as these and the potential that they have for influencing the future of the media and broadcast industry. The 2017 Best Conference Paper Award went to TV Globo of Brazil for its paper describing how its implementation of AI-based technologies has revolutionised business operations.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 5 February 2018. Entries can be submitted at show.ibc.org/technicalpapers
