The third edition of the Sarajevo Innovations Festival, dedicated to showcasing student research papers, took place on Saturday, October 20, 2018, at the Holiday Hotel.
For the first time, student papers from outside of Bosnia and Herzegovina are participating, and the 'Dr. Branislava Peruničić' award will no longer be awarded for the Best Woman Paper; instead, it will become an award for the best paper rated by the authors themselves. Additionally, a new feature at SIFI: in the competitive segment, a fourth rating is introduced, given by a committee composed of representatives from companies and reviewers during the poster session. Essentially, this rating evaluates the poster and paper presentation. Each committee member provides their assessment for the presentation, and the final score is calculated as the average of all committee members' ratings.
1st place – Amar Halilović, „"Building a 3D Map Using the MonoSLAM Algorithm"”
2nd place – Amila Jakubović, „"Tuning PID Controller Parameters Using Genetic Algorithm"”
3rd place – Dženita Škulj, „"Remote Force Control in Medical Robotics"”
The "Dr. Branislava Peruničić" award recipient was Dženita Škulj, who came in 3rd place overall.
