Due to the pandemic situation, this year's ZINC conference is all digital! All papers will be peer-reviewed, and all accepted papers would be set up for digital presentation and Q&A. To assist all the authors in these challenging times, we decided to waive all conference participation fees!



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 2020. is our fifth anniversary. First four years we have focused on successful individuals from the region. This year we are focusing on the world leaders.


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 2020 (ZINC 2020), which is sponsored by IEEE Serbia and Montenegro section and CE chapter and RT-RK Institute and RT-RK department at University of Novi Sad.

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.

Prospective authors are invited to participate in any or all of the following categories:

      1. Lightning talks -a short description or 5 slides long ppt file.
      2. Papers - submit either a 2 or 6 page paper. All papers must comply with IEEE format specifications, and have signed the IEEE copyright form to be submited to IEEE Xplore database.
      3. Keynote - submit your biography and content with short description.

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:

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!

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.
