The work of Telecommunications forum TELFOR is organized through:

  • Plenary sessions with invited papers or lec­tures,

  • Seminars for experienced experts. 
  • Tutorials for young engineers and students,
  • Exhibition of the communications hardware, software, equipment, systems and services,
  • Commercial presentations of the companies and their products,
  • Thematic debates, panel discussions and round ta­bles on current issues,
  • Social meetings, etc.

Different levels and characters of presentations are accepted: presentation of research and scientific results, new ideas, valuable conclusions from experience, state of the art and instructive survey communications. The survey presentations, as well as tutorials and seminars, may be offered by participants or participating companies for acceptance, or can be invited by the Program Committee. The detailed list of technical topics is given within the TELFOR calls for papers. Papers with favourable reviews of the reviewers will be accepted and published in the CD Proceedings. An accepted paper has to be presented in authors or student sections by its author or the co-author. Accepted paper that is not presented in the relevant TELFOR Section cannot be referenced as the paper published at the TELFOR.

The significance and influence of the Telecommunications Forum TELFOR among telecommunications’ professionals in Serbia and region is growing each year. TELFOR regularly has a high number of participants, both individuals and companies. Several previous TELFORs were attended by around 2000 registered individual participants from all telecommunications’ segments. Typically, between 300 and 500 thoroughly reviewed scientific and expert papers with 700-900 authors/co-authors were presented every year and published in the TELFOR CD Proceedings, in English or Serbian languages. Several dozens of participating companies were in some way involved in the last fifteen years, among which there were the greatest international telecommunications companies like Agilent, Alcatel, Cisco, Ericsson, HP, Huawey, IBM, Intracom, Juniper, Microsoft, Motorola, Rohde & Schwarz, Siemens, etc., together with their local partners, as well as around 50 other domestic and international supporting organizations.
