On behalf of the Technical Program Committee it is my pleasure to announce the 13th 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 18 - 20, 2017.
For the past 24 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, to support transfer of the research results into industry and to support activities devoted to making an appropriate environment for development of national ICT industry and the society in general. During the conference, participants have an ample opportunity to present research results and recent developments as well as current practices in engineering. The Conference encompasses a wide spectrum of topics in the field of information and telecommunication technologies, systems and services. Broad areas are covered, ranging from modulation and coding to digital signal processing and multimedia, from microwave technique and electromagnetics to microwave electronics, from telecommunication technologies and systems to telecommunication networks and services, from antennas, propagation and radiolocation to wireless communications, from computer systems and internet technologies to electronics, communications and information technologies.
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 2017. 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 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!
