Instructions for authors

I. INTRODUCTION

Papers to be submitted for TELFOR could include both expert and scientific articles containing original applicable or theoretical results of researches, of interest for a broad group of experts engaged in the field the article deals with. The authors are welcome to submit the articles comprising the applications of theoretical methods in solving specific engineering problems, presentations of new equipment and systems, results of experimental research, new realizations of familiar solutions, etc.

The authors are requested to submit only those papers whose contents have not been notified, published or in any other way presented at any time prior to the Forum. The papers should contain original scientific, expert or applied results of the authors themselves. The results included should in no way violate the rights of other authors or organizations. Although all papers will be reviewed, the authors themselves are responsible for the publishing rights, originality and quality of their papers.

The presentation of results of other authors or institutions, without a personal contribution or participation, as well as survey papers or tutorials, may be offered by participants for acceptance or can be invited by the Program Committee. In such a case it is obligatory for the authors to obtain all the necessary permissions and to clearly state all the sources used.

Papers should be written and presented in English or in Serbian languages. Each participant can be represented three times at most either as an author or as co-author of an original paper. The papers will be accepted for review if they are: (a) received on time, and, (b) strictly prepared in accordance with the instructions for authors.

The authors' papers sent for TELFOR will be subject to review. The anonymous reviewers are appointed by the Program Committee. After reviewing the authors will be informed whether their papers are accepted or rejected. The accepted papers will be presented in regular or special sessions. Only papers with a favorable review of the reviewers will be accepted, presented during the Forum and published in the TELFOR Proceedings (CD version). ATELFOR follows the IEEE policy regarding plagiarism, please see ieee.org/content/ieee-org/en/publications/rights/plagiarism/index.html.

The instructions are the same for paper submission for the review process, and for camera-ready versions. The instructions are meant to be taken literally for the final paper submission, to ensure the high quality of the proceedings.

The paper should be prepared using MS Word or LaTeX, using A4 standard IEEE conference templates. For additional instructions, please, see http://www.telfor.rs/rokovi-i-uputstva-za-autore. The final version of the paper should be converted and sent in Adobe PDF format.

All accepted and presented regular papers, if at least one registration fee is paid per paper, will be submitted for possible publication in the IEEE Xplore database. Please note that Telfor follows IEEE no-show policy. If your paper is accepted, one of the co-authors has to present the accepted paper at the conference. Papers with no-show participants without a valid reason will not be submitted to IEEExplore. The submitted final version of the paper should be IEEE pdf compatible.
