TV Globo team: Won last year’s IBC Conference Prize

People working across every discipline within the broadcast, communications, electronic media and entertainment fields are encouraged to submit proposals outlining a fresh perspective on a challenging subject, a cutting-edge prototype or a piece of enlightening research.

The technical papers at IBC2018 will be integrated throughout the business and strategic conference sessions running within specific themes, rather than forming a stand alone conference stream, enabling delegates the opportunity to closer examine and connect the research with the delivery, production and management of content.    

The technical paper submission deadline has been extended to Monday 12 February and can be submitted here.

IBC Executive Producer of Technology Dr Nick Lodge 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.”

This year, the synopses will be peer-reviewed in March by a panel of experts, after which successful authors will be invited to submit a complete technical paper for review in May. 

Following the peer review process, some successful authors will be invited to speak during the IBC2018 conference, have their paper published on IBC365 and have the opportunity to win the annual Best Conference Paper Award which will be presented during the IBC Awards in September.  

Successful submissions should focus on up-and-coming advances in technology embraced by the industry today, such as machine learning, virtual reality, blockchain, OTT, interoperability, live entertainment as well as traditional production and distribution of audio-visual content.
