IBC Technical Papers Sessions & Posters

What are the IBC Technical Papers?

Unveiling the latest innovations and technological thinking, the peer-reviewed Technical Papers remain the cornerstone of the IBC Conference. Promoting technological innovation striped of all marketing and commercial pressure, the IBC Technical Papers and Posters stand or fall on the strength of their argument and expertise alone. Only the sharpest, relevant and most well researched are selected for publication at IBC and you can catch them - and their authors - in the Advances in Technology stream at the IBC Conference. 

All IBC2016 Technical Papers are now available to download for free! Download the papers by conference session or individually today to make sure you are ready to debate their ground-breaking content at the IBC Conference.

Publishing Your Research

Competition for the IBC Technical Papers and Posters is intense and IBC’s experienced Technical Papers Committee have now reviewed all proposals to choose those which they believe to be the most advanced, innovative and thought-provoking. 

Authors of successful proposals are invited to prepare full papers for publication and to make presentations at the conference in September. The best paper will also receive the accolade of the IBC Best Conference Paper, which last year was awarded to Andrew Cotton and Tim Borer of BBC Research & Development for their paper 'A Display Independent High Dynamic Range Television System'.
