On behalf of the Technical Program Committee it is my pleasure to announce the 12th TELSIKS conference. I am honored to serve as the General Chairman of the Conference which will be held at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, University of Niš, Serbia during October 14 - 17, 2015.
For the past 22 years, the Conference scope has always been to provide a professional and scientific forum for engineers and research scientists from universities, research centers and industry. During the conference they will have an ample opportunity to present research results and recent developments as well as current practices in engineering.
After the opening ceremony, TELSIKS 2015 participants will have the opportunity to attend a plenary lecture about an academic career of a distinguished Serbian scientist Michael Pupin. The conference program will include scientific sessions, continuing poster sessions, additional activities and rich social program. Every effort has been made to create a program that will encourage dialogue within an academic community from all over the world.
This year, among all submitted scientific or application oriented contributed papers that were reviewed by the Review Board members, 80 papers were accepted for presentation. To provide the Conference participants the first hand information on state-of-the-art in focused fields, each oral session will start with an invited keynote paper presented by today’s scientific leaders. Additional events that are planned to be organized during the Conference are IEEE Serbia & Montenegro Section – Executive Committee Meeting (IEEE S&M) and Women in Engineering Meeting (IEEE WIE). In addition, Serbian Cable Operators – Steering Boards Meeting and Advanced Technologies Forum – Potentials of the City are going to be held in parallel with the Conference.
I would like to acknowledge the Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S), Microwave Theory and Technique Society (MTT-S), and IEEE Region 8 for their technical sponsoring the TELSIKS 2015. A high professional level in organizing this year’s Conference is peculiarly the result of more than twenty years’ experience and joint, tireless efforts of many people. I wish to express my gratitude to members of the Technical Program Committee (TPC), Organizing Committee, Executive Committee, sponsors and to all the people who have contributed to making this event possible. I am deeply grateful to the members of the Review Board, who devoted their time to evaluate submitted papers which has helped the Conference TPC to make a high-level scientific program. Thanks are also extended to the authors of invited and contributed papers for their contribution to the quality of the Conference. Also, I would like to thank to the DIACAS participants.
I invite you to attend this year’s Conference, assuring you that it will follow the success of the previously organized TELSIKS conferences. I wish all the participants a very enjoyable and productive conference and also an unforgettable stay in Niš. The Conference Organizing Committee members will put an effort to make staying in Niš a very pleasant for the conference participants. Besides traditional social events like the Conference cocktail or the Conference Gala dinner, participants will have the opportunity to take part in a sightseeing tour and feel the spirit of the modern and the traditional Niš.
On behalf of the Technical Program Committee and Organizing Committee, we are looking forward to seeing you in Niš and to giving you a warm welcome!
