IBC has opened submissions for its Technical Papers programme for its 2021 show, which is due to run from 10-13th September.
Submissions are welcome from all industry sectors across the media, entertainment and technology sector and from every discipline. 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. At this initial stage IBC is inviting 300-word synopses, including an overview of the topic, highlighting unique approaches and key background information.
Dr Paul Entwistle, chair of IBC’s Technical Papers Committee, said, “The opportunity for innovation in our technically diverse industry continues unabated. AI/Machine learning is a prime example that has moved rapidly from curio to business tool with applications spanning encoding to synthetic actors to assisted production. The steady evolution of VR/AR continues to impress and 5G sits on the cusp of creating real change. Progress also brings challenges – content security, fake news and sustainability.
“We are genuinely appreciative of the support the industry shows the Technical Papers programme and look forward to continuing to showcase authors, whose work sits at the cutting-edge, challenges the norm, or shares useful and practical insight.”
Submissions are open until 1st February. Papers accepted for presentation have the opportunity to win the Best Conference Paper Award. Entries can be submitted here.
