Welcome to TELSIKS 2019

Dear friends and colleagues,

it is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to the 14th TELSIKS conference to be held in Niš at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, University of Niš, Serbia from 23rd to 25th October, 2019.

For the past 26 years, the Conference aim 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 have had an ample opportunity to present research results and recent developments as well as current practices in engineering.

After the opening ceremony, TELSIKS 2019 participants will have the opportunity to attend a plenary lecture by Prof. Branislav Notaroš from the Colorado State University, USA. The conference program will include scientific oral sessions starting with invited lectures, 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, 90 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.

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 2019. 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.

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!
