What are the Multimedia Presentations?

Multi Media Presentations (MMP's) (formerly Technical Posters) are peer reviewed alongside the Technical Papers and will be on display at IBC2017 for all attendees to view in the Ruby Lounge.

Like the MMP's, this key area of the show provides a link between the conference and exhibition and here you can meet the authors and gain real insight into the projects being developed in the world’s R&D labs.
