IBC has launched its call for Technical Papers for the IBC2022 Conference.
IBC is world-renowned for its technical papers’ quality, timeliness, and innovative subject matter. The event is an excellent opportunity for forward-thinking technologists and companies to unveil their ideas and research to media industry leaders hungry for new technology concepts, their possible uses and practical applications.
The Technical Papers Programme welcomes entries from all industry sectors across the media, entertainment and technology industry and from every discipline, whether you are a professional or a professor, a member of an R&D team, working alone or with a global brand and from across any part of the broadcast, communications, electronic media and entertainment fields.
IBC Technical Papers present original, novel research on solutions to real-world problems faced by the international broadcast and digital media industry and are non-commercial.
The IBC2021 Award for Best Technical Paper was presented to a large team from BBC Research & Development, for their contribution Stronger together: cross-service media recommendations.
The aim of the paper was to present consumers with a single portal to multiple media sites, with intelligent references between services. If a consumer frequently listens to a particular singer on Spotify, for example, the service would also send notifications when that performer is available on BBC radio and television content, available online.

At this initial stage, we are looking for a 300-word synopsis giving a clear and concise overview of the concept that will be the key topic of your paper, highlighting what is unique and explaining its background.
Dr Paul Entwistle, chair of IBC’s Technical Papers Committee, said: “Last year we learnt of conversational robots, industry challenging approaches to privacy management, practical improvements to streaming systems and the standardisation of AI/Machine learning - to mention only a handful of the excellent papers received. The technology impacting our industry is broad.
”So, whether your advance is futuristic, alternative or practical – in production systems, content creation, delivery or human experience, we welcome your technical/scientific submission. This year, more than ever, we are looking forward to the opportunity to sit alongside our peers and learn of their work, enjoying the debate and a glimpse into our industry’s future.”
A panel of professional experts rigorously reviews all submissions. Papers accepted for presentation at the IBC Conference have the opportunity to win the highly coveted Best Conference Paper Award, presented at the IBC Awards.
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, 9 February 2022. Entries can be submitted at show.ibc.org/technicalpapers
