Submissions for IBC2019 Technical Papers are Now Open

IBC has announced the call for technical papers for the 2019 exhibition.

Last year saw the successful integration of the Technical Papers into IBC’s key conference themes, placing them as ‘Tech Talks’ alongside strategic and business presentations. This was widely appreciated, as the audience heard first-hand about groundbreaking technologies from the world's brightest innovators and researchers. 

The technical papers selected for 2019 will continue the success of the Tech Talks whilst retaining the underlying novelty and rigour expected of the papers. The scope of media technology continues to diversify well beyond the traditional production and distribution of audio-visual content. 

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. In fact, up-and-coming areas such as these, are of particular interest this year, because of the potential they may have to influence the media and broadcast industry's future.

All submissions are rigorously reviewed by a panel of professional experts. Papers accepted for presentation at the conference have the opportunity to win the highly coveted Best Conference Paper Award, presented at the IBC Awards, and will also be published on IBC365.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 4 February 2019. Entries can be submitted at show.ibc.org/technicalpapers
