The IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting 2018, the 13th in the series, will be held in Valencia, Spain. The symposium is the premier forum for the presentation and exchange of technical advances in the rapidly converging areas of multimedia broadcasting, telecommunications, consumer electronics, and networking technologies.

IEEE BMSB 2018 will be organized by the Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM) of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV).

Valencia is a nice and modern city on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, that combines history, tradition and modernity in an unusual way. Early June is the perfect time to host an event in Valencia because of its warm temperatures and sunny days.

2018 will be the year of the first normative specifications of the fifth generation of wireless systems 5G. IEEE BMSB 2018 will be co-located with a one-day tutorial on emerging 5G broadcast technologies and applications by the 5G-PPP project 5G-Xcast. IEEE BMSB 2018 will also count with a number of workshops on 5G organized by several 5G-PPP projects.
