The IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting 2015, the 10th in the series, will be held in Ghent, Belgium.

As the premier inter national conference in the area of broadcasting and multimedia, BMSB2015 is expected to stimulate further research in this field through the exchange of ideas and lively debate on state-of-the-art knowledge, as well as the challenges in store.

The meeting venue is ‘Het Pand’, the culture and congress centre of Ghent University. Het Pand is a historical monument: this unique building is a former Dominican Monastery, situated beside the river Leie in the historic center of the city of Ghent. Ghent is a must-see destination, according to Lonely Planet, it is “Europe’s best kept secret”. National Geographic Traveler Magazine has also listed the city as the most authentic historic city in the world.

BMSB2015 will feature plenary talks by world-renowned scientists, a variety of sessions and a panel discussion focusing on the most pressing issues in the field of broadcasting. BMSB has been a growing international forum for the presentation, discussion and exchange of information concerning new developments and research trends in broadband and broadcast multimedia systems. Students from around the world will have the opportunity to present their work in an oral or poster session while developing their technical communication skills and networking.

There is a special iMinds/GOLD social event focused towards students at the Ghent Brewery Gruut. The social event is held in the ‘oude Vismijn’, the renovated Old Fish Market. The interior is just as impressive as the outside and the view over the water is magnificent.

It is of particular pleasure for the Local Organizing Committee to finally welcome conference delegates from around the world to our university and the wonderful city of Ghent.
