Due to the pandemic situation, this year's ZINC conference is hybrid! All papers will be peer-reviewed, and all accepted papers would be set up for either digital presentation and Q&A - or live event, depending on the situation and author preference.
WHERE ARE THE FRONTIERS?
We cordially invite you to come and join the ZINC Events.
The main drive behind the ZINC – We are not another conference! continues.
The ZINC events have started as a desire to create events that are extending the borders to bring the spirit of big CE conferences and events. In 2021. is our sixth anniversary.
CLOSER THAN EVER!
The events will provide symposiums, forums, seminars, talks, workshops, tutorials, product and prototype demonstration, for researchers and engineers from academia and industry to exchange experience and results on their recent work. This includes but is not limited to all academy and industry members active in the fields of electronics, software engineering, hardware design, consumer applications and devices, new services and platforms, communications and connectivity as well as various enabling technologies and interdisciplinary forms of research with consumer benefit.
The ZINC events include the Zooming Innovation in Consumer Electronics International Conference 2021 (ZINC 2021), which is sponsored by IEEE Serbia and Montenegro Section - Consumer Electronics Chapter; University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Technical Sciences, Department for Computer Enginnering and Computer Communications and RT-RK Institute for Computer-Based Systems.
This year’s edition is collocated with the 7th Conference on the Engineering of Computer Based Systems ECBS 2021 for the most powerful program ever.
The events will be hosted by RT-RK Institute for Computer Based Systems Novi Sad, R&D company and national research institute, with strong ties to the University of Novi Sad. The host town Novi Sad is a regional center of youth and education, also known as Serbian Athens due to its rich cultural heritage and influence.

Only electronic submissions via the web will be accepted.
Boundaries between disciplines are breached and CE is a perfect example of multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and cross-technology work in action. The seed starts in fundamental sciences, nurtured via tools, management, units and empowered by services and systems, tailored by needs and desires, until it matures to off the shelf products. In this light topics include, but are not limited to the following:
Papers and presentations presenting devices which are to be used or leased by consumers. Devices shall have a clear consumer use case in mind (to the likes of smart phone, TV, STB, radio, home automation equipment etc).
Papers and presentation presenting software stacks, software architectures and software implementation solutions which are used or could be used in consumer devices.
Papers and presentations presenting hardware architectures which are applicable in devices serving consumers.
Papers and presentations presenting solutions which are specific to current problems in Internet of Things.
Papers and presentations presenting solutions which are used in contexts of virtual and augmented reality.
Papers and presentations presenting specific HW and SW solutions used in gaming and entertainment systems and applications
Papers and presentations covering use cases and solutions for smart environments, including smart spaces, smart homes and smart cities.
Papers and presentations covering HW and SW solutions and applications for consumer healthcare.
Papers and presentation presenting software stacks, software architectures and software implementation solutions which are used or could be used in cars.
Papers and presentations dealing with specific aspects on how to improve user experience and human-device interaction.
Papers and presentations covering aspects of image processing, video processing, including algorithms and systems which help visual information be acquired, processed, transmitted and presented.
Papers and presentations presenting solutions which are specific to protocols, implementations and use cases of various communication technologies connecting consumer devices or participating in use cases serving consumers.
Papers and presentations on artificial intelligence solutions, helped by big data mining technologies, which help develop new intelligent use cases for consumers.
Papers and presentations presenting broad topics on how we can engineer software better: practices, stacks, methods.
Papers and presentations presenting broad topics on how we can engineer computer-based systems better: practices, stacks, methods.
Papers and presentations covering broad areas of hardware and software solutions for sensing and MEMS technologies.
Papers and presentations covering aspects of energy management in consumer devices.
Papers and presentations covering security and privacy aspects and giving solutions to improve these aspects in consumer technologies.
Papers and presentations presenting a technology which can be utilized in the consumer context, therefore being an enabler.
Papers and presentations addressing topics on how consumer technologies impact societies, and solution proposals in that regard.
Papers and presentations covering practices of development, project management and organizational aspects when designing and deploying consumer technology.
Papers and presentations covering insights into how branding and marketing affect consumer technology designs and development.
Q: How do I know that my submission is with the scope of the ZINC?
A: If you can write a paragraph with a consumer in mind – then yes, by all means, you are at the right place!
IN ALL TRACKS
The ‘Industrial Categories’ is meant for papers that are submitted by non-academic, such as for example, but not limited to engineers working in industry. These papers focus more on practical oriented contents such as implementation of related topics. Papers for the Industrial Tracks will be reviewed by qualified industry reviewers for industry relevancy for its content. Authors of these papers may retain their copyrights.
To support the experience sharing and to popularize the applied sciences, we are introducing lightning talks – 5 to 10 minutes presentations of best practices, techniques, ideas, and tricks. For lightning talks no associated academic paper is required.
