The International Symposium INFOTEH–JAHORINA gathers the experts, scientists, engineers, researchers and students in the field of information technologies and their application in control, communication, production and electronic systems, power engineering and in other areas of electrical engineering and computing. The working part of the Symposium is organized through sessions, round tables, invited lectures and presentations. The Symposium pays special attention to young researchers and students by organising a special student session.
The first INFOTEH–JAHORINA Symposium was held in Bistrica hotel on the mountain Jahorina, East Sarajevo, March 12 – 14, 2001.

Authors are invited to submit unpublished and original papers that are not under consideration for publication at other conferences or journals. The papers are required to contain original scientific, expert or applied results of the authors. The authors should submit papers that present applications of theoretical methods in solving engineering problems, new devices and/or systems, results of own experimental research, new approaches or solutions to existing problems, etc. All submitted papers are subject to review, but the authors are responsible for the originality and quality of their papers. Submissions will be checked for plagiarism using plagiarism detection software. The expected number of pages for each submission is 4 to 6, except for the invited papers which may have more than 6 pages.
