The Technical Papers programme will accept entries from all sectors across the media, entertainment and technology industry.
IBC has announced the call for Technical Papers for the upcoming IBC2024 Conference. Recognised globally for its content, IBC provides a platform for visionary technologists and companies to present their cutting-edge ideas and research to leaders in the media industry.
This call for papers invites submissions from diverse sectors within the media, entertainment, and technology industry, welcoming contributions from professionals, professors, R&D teams, and individuals worldwide.
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.”
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit a 300-word synopsis outlining the key topic of their paper, highlighting its uniqueness and novelty, and providing context. The Technical Papers cover a wide spectrum, including analytical insights into the cultural, social, and environmental impact of the industry, especially in the realm of AI and its potential implications on fake news and bias.
Entwistle noted: “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? 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.”
Submitted papers will undergo rigorous evaluation by a panel of professional experts, and those selected for presentation at the IBC2024 Conference stand a chance to win the prestigious Best Conference Paper Award, presented at the IBC2024 Awards.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 9, 2024. Interested individuals can submit their entries at [Technical Papers 2024 Submission – IBC2024].
