The IBC Technical Papers Committee is composed of no less than 20 members whose backgrounds, nationalities, affiliations and areas of technical expertise span as diverse a range as is practical. Members are carefully selected from leading engineers and experienced media technologists with expertise spanning the entire field. Committee membership is reviewed annually and personal appointments are made on an annual basis.
Members are assigned to one of four sub-groups, based on their industry knowledge, for the purpose of carrying our assessments on submissions.
Following a strict process, the committee carefully peer review each submitted synopses within their sub-group and come together at a meeting at the IBC office 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.
Committee members understand that all synopses, papers, and all other details provided by authors and their organisations, have commercial value and shall remain strictly confidential until published at the Conference. Until published in IBC publications, all Conference details and decisions made by the Committee shall also remain confidential.
In the event that a member experiences any conflict of interest in the assessment of a conference submission he/she shall declare this and abstain from any judgements relating to this submission.
