Nikola Konjevic is a Professor Emeritus at the University of Belgrade Faculty of Physics in 2008 and an academician of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in 2006. He graduated in 1963 with a degree in physical chemistry at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, University of Belgrade, Serbia. He received his M.S. degree from the Physics Department of the same university in 1965 and D.Phil. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics, University of Liverpool, UK, in 1968. He was elected as an assistant in 1964, a research assistant in 1969, a research associate in 1974, and a research counselor in 1979.

Professor Konjevic is retired in 2007, and next year, he is engaged by the Faculty of Physics, University of Belgrade, as one of coordinators of Ph.D. studies. His scientific interests include low-temperature plasma spectroscopy, spectral line shapes and shifts, spectroscopic diagnostics of low-temperature plasmas and electric gas discharges, and interaction of gas discharge with electrodes and nonmetal surfaces. His interest is also in the field of laser application for diagnostics of gas discharges and low-temperature plasmas. In addition, he won the October Award of Belgrade with two coauthors in 1976 and the National Award for Physics in 1999. From 1992 to 2003, he was an Associate Editor of the Spectroscopy Journal of Quantitative and Radiative Transfer, Pergamon Press, Oxford. In 2000, he became a corresponding Member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts. In 2009, he became an Associate Editor of Spectrochimica Acta, Part B, Elsevier.
