The IBC Technical Papers Committee

The IBC Technical Papers Committee consists of approximately 25 international members, carefully selected from leading engineers and experienced media technologists with expertise spanning the entire field. Members are assigned to one of four sub-groups based on their industry knowledge.

Following a strict process, the committee carefully peer review each submitted synopses within their sub-group and come together at a meeting in March to reach a consensus decision.

Authors of selected synopses will be invited to submit a full eight-page paper for further review to ensure only truly innovative work is presented at IBC.

The committee meet again in June to conduct a final review of all full papers and begin curating the conference sessions based on the successful papers.
