Call For IBC2018 Technical Papers Submission

News Image
IBC has announced that it is now accepting synopsis submissions for its Technical Papers for the IBC2018 Conference.

In a change from previous years, this year the selected Technical Papers will not form part of a single conference stream, but rather integrated with business and strategic presentations within specific themes throughout the conference. The aim is to bring ground-breaking technologies closer to the attention of more delegates, and ensure they have the opportunity to hear presentations from innovators and researchers.

IBC is looking to receive proposals for Technical Papers dealing with any 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 beyond the traditional production and distribution of audio-visual content, with developments such 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.

IBC is particularly 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.

Dr Nick Lodge, IBC's Executive Producer of Technology, said: "We look forward to receiving many novel, exciting and surprising offers of papers which will inform the design of all the technology sessions at IBC2018. I am also delighted that at this year's conference, new technology, will be linked more closely with other strategic topics, making it more accessible to more delegates than ever before."

Entries can be submitted at show.ibc.org/technicalpapers.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 5 February 2018.
