The conference venue was Regent Esplanade Zagreb - Zagreb's most prestigious hotel - originally constructed in 1925 to accommodate passengers of the world-renowned Orient Express train. Especially favourable room rates (significantly lower than the best web rate) will be available for the registered participants of the Conference.

Regent Esplanade Zagreb

Nine hundred years of history

Zagreb offers visitors pleasant walks and enjoyment in a city full of parks and pedestrian zones. Zrinjevac, a park located only a few steps away from the main square, also forms part of the Lenuci green horseshoe that encompasses some of the most beautiful buildings in town.

Nine hundred years old, the city lives a rich cultural life, with numerous museums, theatres, concert halls and art galleries. It is a centre of congress tourism, economic and business events and trade fairs. Zagreb is especially beautiful in late May, with many outdoor concerts, performances and festivities.

Zagreb grew out of two medieval settlements that flourished for centuries on neighbouring hills. Zagreb’s written history dates to the year 1094, when a diocese was established there. The classicist and secessionist facades of its historical nucleus exude the lofty spirit of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Almost all of the main sites of the city and cultural venues are located in the very centre.

Since Zagreb is the capital of Croatia, Zagreb is also the necktie capital! Around the year 1635, some six thousand soldiers and knights came to Paris to give their support to King Louis XIII and Cardinal Richelieu. Among them were a great number of Croatian mercenaries. The traditional outfit of these Croats aroused interest on account of the unusual and picturesque scarves distinctively tied about their necks. The scarves were made of various cloths, ranging from coarse material for common soldiers, to fine cotton and silk for officers. This elegant "Croatian style" immediately enamoured the French, who were delighted by the new article of clothing, which had been previously unknown in Europe. The fashionable expression, ’a la croate’, soon evolved into a new French word, which still exists today: la cravate.

University of Zagreb

The University of Zagreb (1669) is the oldest and biggest university in South-Eastern Europe. Ever since its foundation, the University has been continually growing and developing and now consists of 29 faculties, three art academies and the Centre for Croatian Studies. With its comprehensive programmes and over 50,000 full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students the University is the strongest teaching institution in Croatia.

It offers a wide range of academic degree courses leading to Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees in the following fields: Arts, Biomedicine, Biotechnology, Engineering, Humanities, Natural and Social Sciences. it is also a strongly research-oriented institution, contributing with over 50 percent to the total research output of the country.


Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing

The year 2010 is the 341st year since establishment of the University of Zagreb, 91st year of study of electrical engineering and the 54th year of autonomous Faculty of Electrical Engineering. In 1994, the Faculty changed its name becoming the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) reflecting the fact that eminent professionals in electrical engineering but also in computing have been coming from this institution.

The primary mission of the Faculty is to prepare students to perform direct tasks on their workplaces. However, what might be even more important is to accept permanent education as a necessity in a profession that is undergoing dramatic changes. The present research and educational staff comprises more than 140 professors and 230 teaching and research assistants. The Faculty has developed respectable international cooperation with many institutions around the world.

* Servus (or serbus, as often pronounced in Zagreb) is a salutation used in parts of Central and Eastern Europe. In the old days quite formal and usually accompanied by raising of the hat and a small bow, nowadays it is a friendly and often informal greeting. The word originates from Latin and means "at your service".
