IBC2019 Technical Papers Submission is Now Open

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/IBC2018?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#IBC2018lt;/agt;–IBC announces today that the call for Technical Papers is now open for
the IBC2019 Conference.

IBC is world-renowned for the quality, timeliness and innovative subject
matter of its Technical Papers. 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. Following an
increase in female speakers at the conference in 2018, up from 14% in
2017 to 37%, IBC is keen to encourage applications for the Technical
Papers from a globally diverse audience.

Last year saw the successful integration of the Technical Papers into
IBC’s key conference themes, placing them as ‘Tech Talks’ alongside
strategic and business presentations. This was widely appreciated, as
the audience heard first-hand about groundbreaking technologies from the
world’s brightest innovators and researchers. The BBC won the 2018 Best
Conference Paper Award for its paper describing how AI-assisted
production could increase the breadth of live event coverage.

The Technical Papers selected for 2019 will continue the success of the
Tech Talks whilst retaining the underlying novelty and rigour expected
of the papers. The scope of media technology continues to diversify well
beyond the traditional production and distribution of audio-visual
content. Today, the industry embraces such developments 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, to list just
a few. IBC is especially interested in up-and-coming areas like these,
and the potential that they have for influencing the future of the media
and broadcast industry.

Dr Paul Entwistle, Chair of IBC’s Technical Papers Committee, said, “We
look forward to receiving many more novel, diverse and intriguing offers
of papers from which we will curate the IBC2019 Tech Talks. Our
integration within the key conference themes is a great opportunity for
our authors to not only showcase their technology to fellow enthusiasts,
but also explain its impact to the broader media industry.”

All submissions are rigorously reviewed by a panel of professional
experts. 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, and will also be published on IBC365.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 4 February 2019. Entries can be
submitted at show.ibc.org/technicalpapers
