About the Symposium

The 62nd International Symposium ELMAR-2020, 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 symposium is sponsored by the Croatian Society Electronics in Marine (ELMAR).

The scientific program includes keynote talks by eminent international experts and contributed papers. Papers accepted by two independent reviewers and presented at the symposium will be published in the symposium proceedings and IEEE Xplore .

Several special sessions will be organized during the symposium. We encourage special session proposals and submission of papers to the proposed special sessions.

Special sessions

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 Asst Prof Mario Muštra, ELMAR-2020 Program Chair: elmar2020@fer.hr. The deadline for proposals is March 15, 2020.


Paper Submission

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

If you are interested in submitting a paper to ELMAR symposium, you need to prepare a full paper on four (4) pages in the A4 paper size. Additional pages will be charged (the paper is required to have even number of pages).

Please prepare your paper according to the ELMAR paper template: All papers must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification for compatibility. Therefore, authors are asked to carefully study IEEE Xplore PDF requirements and convert their papers to PDF based on these requirements. Otherwise, paper can be rejected without review. The compliance with the requirements must to be confirmed by uploading the PDF (or source files) to IEEE PDF eXpress, using 49956X as the Conference ID.

Please send your submission electronically in PDF-format using Microsoft Research Conference Management Toolkit (CMT).

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 also be submitted through CMT, with specioal session name selected as the topic. If the paper is accepted, on Camera ready version of the paper, the copyright notice should be added to the footer, below the left paragraph on the first page.

The appropriate copyright clearance code notice is to appear on the bottom of the first page of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloging/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding. Detailed instructions can be found at: www.ieee.org/publications/rights/index.html. Exact coopyright text (to be put on the camera-ready version of the paper) will be written in this section, after the acceptance notices will be sent to authors.

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.
