In Memoriam

It is with great sadness and sorrow that we inform you of the passing of professor Branka Zovko-Cihlar.  Branka Zovko-Cihlar was a full professor at the Department of Radiocommunications and Microwave Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, Croatia. She received her B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering in 1959 and 1964, respectively. She was the author of more than 220 papers published in international journals and conferences. She was the President of the Croatian Society Electronics in Marine – Elmar from 1990 to 2023 and a member of the Croatian Academy of Engineering since 1993.  She was an eminent expert in the field of radiocommunications, broadcasting and multimedia, but, above all, she was an exceptional person who inspired us all with her enormous industriousness and energy, and with her cheerful spirit full of optimism and enthusiasm.

Professor Branka Zovko-Cihlar was one of the cofounders of the IWSSIP Conference, who put all her knowledge and enthusiasm into establishing and growing the IWSSIP since its origins. We, the organizers of IWSSIP 2023, would like to emphasize that she was instrumental in bringing the IWSSIP to North Macedonia and the beautiful city of Ohrid for the first time, for which we are deeply indebted to her. In her honor, let’s try to make the future IWSSIP conferences continue to grow and flourish.
