IBC2024 Technical Papers: Submissions open

Entries can be submitted at Technical Papers 2024 Submission - IBC2024. The deadline for submissions is Friday 9 February 2024.

At IBC2024, exhibitors and speakers from around the globe will showcase game-changing innovations and tackle the media sector’s most pressing trends and issues – changing perceptions and meeting the needs of the world-leading broadcasters, content owners, rightsholders, service providers and others attending the four-day conference and trade show.

Papers accepted for presentation at the IBC2024 Conference will be in the race to win the highly coveted Best Conference Paper Award, presented at the IBC2024 Awards. Those involved will be able to unveil their ideas and research to an international audience of media industry leaders.

All disciplines, from professionals to professors, members of R&D teams, those working independently or with global brands and from across any part of the broadcast, communications, electronic media and entertainment fields will be welcomed to submit their paper into the programme.

Dr Paul Entwistle, Chair of IBC’s Technical Papers Committee, said: “IBC2023 was another great year for our Technical Papers Programme. 5G came to the fore and indisputably proved its place in content production and our extended Video Coding session (spanning encoding, super-resolution and sustainability) also enjoyed strong audience support. Advances in the technologies underpinning streaming continued to show significant improvements, while AI – being tried everywhere – sought to showcase exciting use cases where it will make a compelling difference.”

“Technical disclosures can also include new analytical insight into the cultural, social and environmental impact of our industry. As AI continues to impress, it also brings risks from fake news and bias — do we have the tools and transparency to tame this genie?” Entwistle noted. “IBC sincerely appreciates the support the industry shows the Technical Papers Programme and looks forward to showcasing authors whose work sits at the cutting-edge, challenges the norm, or shares useful and practical insight.”

At this initial stage, IBC is looking for a 300-word synopsis giving a clear and concise overview of the key topic of your paper, evidencing what is unique and novel and explaining its background.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 9 February 2024.
