The IBC Technical Papers and Posters are world renowned for promoting the latest innovations and technological thinking. Stripped of marketing and commercial influence the proposals made to IBC are rigorously peer reviewed and stand or fall on the strength of their expertise, novelty, clarity and insight.
The rigorously peer-reviewed Technical Papers are one of the most important parts of the IBC Conference and, over the years, have showcased some of the most visionary thinking in the industry. They habitually unveil some of the very latest technological innovations and thinking from the leading broadcasters and research institutes around the world, giving them a platform to speak to the global community of influencers and C-level delegates that comprise the IBC Conference audience.
Proposals for the IBC2017 Technical Papers and Posters should be a written synopsis of roughly 300 words. IBC’s Technical Papers Committee reviews all proposals and, if selected, these are then worked up to full papers suitable for publication and presentation at IBC2017 in September.
Technical Posters are selected alongside the Technical Papers and will be on display at IBC2017 for all attendees to view at the IBC Future Zone.
Competition to feature at the IBC Conference is fierce, and is amplified by the contest to win the IBC Best Conference Paper Award. This is presented to the paper which both advances the industry’s knowledge and does so in the most clear and informative way. In 2015, the award went to Andrew Cotton and Tim Borer of BBC Research & Development for their paper 'A Display Independent High Dynamic Range Television System’. Previous winners also include: Italy’s RAI; SAM; Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute; NHK; and NDS.
Last year, Erik Stare was awarded the ‘Best Conference Paper’ Award.
“To have a paper accepted and published at the IBC Conference automatically provided a platform for making the paper content more widely known. Of course, the fact that is also received the Best Conference Paper Award also significantly increased the visibility.” Erik Stare, Senior R&D Engineer, Terecom, Sweden
