About the Symposium

The 60th International Symposium ELMAR-2018, the oldest conference in Europe, will traditionally be held in the beautiful old town Zadar on the Croatian Adriatic coast. While the scientific program is expected to create stimulating professional interaction, the crystal clear Adriatic Sea, warm summer atmosphere and wealth of historic monuments promise a pleasant and memorable stay.

The scientific program includes keynote talks by eminent international experts and contributed papers. Papers accepted by two independent reviewers will be published in the symposium proceedings. The symposium is sponsored by the Croatian Society Electronics in Marine (ELMAR).

Several special sessions will be organized during the symposium. Authors are encouraged to submit their papers to these special sessions.

Topics

  • Image and Video Processing
  • Multimedia Communications
  • Speech and Audio Processing
  • Wireless Communications
  • Telecommunications
  • Antennas and Propagation
  • e-Learning and m-Learning
  • Navigation Systems
  • Ship Electronic Systems
  • Power Electronics and Automation
  • Naval Architecture
  • Sea Ecology

Prospective organizers are invited to submit proposals for special sessions. Special sessions, like regular sessions, are oral technical sessions with at least five speakers each. The special session organizer’s role is to invite the five speakers, ensure that the papers are submitted on time, organise the review, ensure that authors of accepted papers submit the camera ready papers through the official online system and remind participants to register for the conference. The session organiser should also chair the session.

Those willing to organize special session, please contact prof. Branka Zovko-Cihlar, ELMAR-2018 General Chair: elmar2018@fer.hr. The deadline for proposals is February 19, 2018. The special session papers must be submitted by April 16, 2018.

Paper Submission

If you are interested in submitting a paper to ELMAR symposium, you need to prepare a full paper on four (4) pages. Additional pages will be charged (the paper is required to have even number of pages).

Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted.

You should use A4 paper size for your ELMAR paper.

Please prepare your paper according to the ELMAR paper template:
Please send your submission electronically in PDF-format using Microsoft Research Conference Management Toolkit (CMT):

https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/ELMAR2018/

Select the symposium topic that most closely matches the subject area of your paper. This topic selection will be used to match reviewers to your paper, and to include your paper in the most appropriate session in the symposium program, so it is important to make a careful selection.

Special Session papers should not initially be submitted through CMT. Iit should be done by e-mailing the session organizer directly. After being accepted, special session camera-ready papers should be submitted through CMT.

Commercial references (such as Product Names, Brands, or Part Numbers) are not permitted in the body of the paper. Commercial presentation opportunities are available during sponsored events at the symposium. Please contact the Program Chair for more information.

Authors submitting the papers should be able to communicate effectively in English. Individuals presenting papers at the symposium should be able to effectively deliver the paper in English to an international audience - authors who are unable to do so themselves, are obliged to find alternative speakers who can effectively present their paper.

It is required that each accepted paper will be orally presented (appx. 15-minutes presentation time) by its author, co-author or a presenter (non-author). Symposium organizers will not send proceedings hard copies to no-show authors and such papers will be excluded from online proceedings. No-show authors will be excluded from all future ELMAR paper submissions.
