The conference ETAI 2021 will be held virtually!
The conference is free of charge, no conference fees.

ETAI conferences are conferences organized by ETAI Society and Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at University Ss. “Cyril and Methodius” – Skopje, Macedonia

They are the biggest international meetings of the experts from scientific and business community of the Republic of Macedonia and the region in the areas of Electronics, Telecommunications, Automatics and Informatics. ETAI 2021 is the fourteenth in series of thematic conferences and this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic will be held virtually instead of the traditional ambient of the exceptional natural beauty and cultural heritage of Ohrid area, protected by the UNESCO.

Following its interdisciplinary character, the main goal of the ETAI 2021 is to bring together researchers and practitioners to present, discuss and further develop views on conference’s hot topics: Smart cities solutions, Internet of Things, Digital economy, Cyber security and Big data. The key intention is to create a forum where theoretical and practical experiences can be exchanged and presented to the public sector as well as to private one, and improve mutual cooperation through joint projects.


The ETAI 2021 Conference will be held Online
