Professors at FER among world's...

A group of researchers from Stanford University in California (USA) recently published a study on the scientific citation, ranking around 160,000 of the world's most cited scientists in all disciplines and listing 2% of the world's most-cited scientists. The paper is available here.

The study published two lists:

  • a list of the most influential scientists for their entire scientific career and
  • a list of the most influential scientists for 2019.

The list of the most influential scientists in the world for the entire scientific career includes 47 Croatian scientists, including two from FER. Professor Sven Lončarić, Ph.D., is ranked in the top 1% of scientists in the world in the field of "Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing", and associate professor Dubravko Babić, Ph.D., in the top 2% of scientists in the world in the field of "Optoelectronics and Photonics".

The list of the top 2% of the most influential scientists in the world for 2019 also includes 47 Croatian scientists, three of whom are from FER: professor Sven Lončarić, Ph.D., in the field of "Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing", associate professor Hrvoje Pandžić, Ph.D., in the field of "Energy" and professor Damir Žarko, Ph.D., in the field of "Electrical & Electronic Engineering".

The study used data from the Scopus database, which measures the impact of scientists until the end of 2019. The study, which categorises scientists into 22 fields and 176 branches, analysed citations from 1996 to 2019 and was based on a complex model that used six standardised metrics of scientific productivity.

This year's slogan of the conference is "ICT in Renewable Energy Technologies", and it will cover various areas of ICT application, from microelectronics, electronics, data science, biomedicine, telecommunications, through computers in education, engineering education to intelligent and business intelligent systems, robotics, digital economics, law and many other areas. This year, MIPRO gives special importance to hydrogen energy and a new conference called "Regional Hydrogen Energy Conference - RHEC" has been established and will take place for the first time.

Although the convention consists of conferences, special session, various interesting workshops, round tables, invited presentations and lectures and other program segments, this announcement is primarily intended for authors of scientific and professional papers.

The deadline for abstract submission is Monday, 18 January 2021. Papers can be submitted to 15 different conferences and/or 1 special session. All papers will undergo two double blind peer review, and the same author can submit multiple papers. Presented papers in English will be sent for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Database.

Paper instructions for authors, deadlines, registration fees and other important details are available at  or via contact e-mail

HT and FER Launch First 5G Campus...

Hrvatski Telekom and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing of the University of Zagreb today launched the first 5G Campus Network in Croatia, which allows the scientific and business community, students, and start-ups to work on development projects based on 5G technology in the field of Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence applications.

In cooperation with Hrvatski Telekom, FER will promote automation and computing projects, telecommunications and radio communications, medicine, energy, and agriculture, which rely on mobile networks. It will directly encourage further development of robotics, edge and fog computing, and distributed learning. Hrvatski Telekom has developed this project on the model of the campus networks launched by Deutsche Telekom in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Hungary, aiming at developing and testing new communication technologies.
