2009 International Multiconference on Computer Science and Information Technology (IMCSIT)

CONFERENCE REPORT


The 2009 edition of the IMCSIT conference was held in Mrągowo, Poland on October 12-14, 2009. The scientific part consisted of 12 conferences / workshops / symposia devoted to: (1) Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Applications, (2) Business Intelligence, (3) Computer Linguistics – Applications, (4) e-Commerce and e-Government, (5) Intelligent Mobile Technology for Social Change, (6) Medical Informatics and Engineering, (7) Multimedia – Applications and Processing, (8) Principles of Information Technology and Applications, (9) Workshop on Real-Time programming / Real-time Software, (10) Advanced in Programming Language, (11) Ad-hoc Wireless Networks, (12) Computational Optimization. In addition, a joint session devoted to Research & Development was organized by the IMCSIT and the Autumn Meeting of the Polish Information Processing Society.

IMCSIT was organized under the patronage of Prof. Barbara Kudrycka, Minister of Science and Higher Education, and Waldemar Pawlak, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy; and in-cooperation with the Poland Chapter of the IEEE Computer Society, the Systems Research Institute Polish Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Computer Science Polish Academy of Sciences, and the Asociación de Técnicos de Informática. The Ministry of Science and Higher Education has sponsored the conference.

Keynote presentations were delivered by:

  • Prof. Juliusz Lech Kulikowski, Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences,
  • Dr. Stephan Pascall, European Commission, DG Information Society and Media,
  • Dr. Adrian Kosowski, Laureate of the Witold Lipski Award, Technical University of Gdańsk, and
  • James Quentin Stafford-Fraser, DisplayLink, Exbiblio, Cambridge Visual Networks.

This year's conference Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Applications was devoted celebration of 50 years of academic work of Prof. Juliusz Lech Kulikowski, and was organized in cooperation with: the Poland Chapter of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, the World Federation of Computing Software, the EUropean Society for Fuzzy Logic And Technology, the European Neural Network Society, the Polish Neural Networks Society, and the International Fuzzy Systems Association. During the AAIA 2009, the Prof. Zdzisław Pawlak prize for the best paper was awarded for the fourth time. The winners were: in the student paper category Bartosz Broda; in the general paper category Urszula Markowska-Kaczmar. This award was sponsored by the Polish Information Processing Society. Furthermore, for the first time, special awards for young scientists sponsored by the  International Fuzzy Systems Association were awarded. Here, recognitions were presented to: Tomasz Ignac and Tomasz Gambin; while awards were presented to: Mateusz Kobos and Michal Stanek.

Finally, best paper awards of the Computational Linguistics – Applications Workshop, were presented to: Katarzyna Moroz, Igor Leturia, and Eric Wehrli.

Separately, in association with the „Workshop on IT Research and Development in Poland,” which was a shared initiative of the IMCSIT and the Autumn Meeting of the Polish Information Processing Society, Jan Łukasiewicz award was presented to the most innovative Polish IT companies. This award was established in 2008 by the Polish Information Processing Society. The 2009 winner was ITTI Sp. z o.o, while special recognition was presented to Polish Wikipedia.

English was the exclusive conference language. In 2009, IMCSIT attracted 207 papers (including texts sent by invited speakers). Out of submitted contributions 110 articles were included in Proceedings. Furthermore, additional 30 texts have been published as Preprints of Workshop on Real-Time Programming, which was organized in-cooperation with the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC). It should be stressed that each year the acceptance rate for texts published in post-conference Special Issues of international journals is approximately 35%.

Conference materials were published on the CD (ISSN 1896-7094 – the fourth volume of a periodical publication; ISBN 978-83-60810-22-4). After the conference these materials will be included in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEE Catalog Number CFP0964E) – one of three biggest repositories of academic publications in computer science – assuring a worldwide reach. Texts published as Preprints of Workshop on Real-Time Programming will be published by IAFC in Elsevier. Out of 140 texts accepted for publication, 39 articles (36%) came from Poland, while the remaining 101 (64%) from abroad (representing more than 40 countries from all continents).

In a similar way as in the past, best papers accepted at IMCSIT (their updated and extended versions) will be published in Special Issues of international journals, such as: System Science, Applied Computing Journal Software, Mathware & Computing Software, Fundamenta Informaticae, Advances Computational Science and Technology, Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research, Journal of Digital Information Management, Informatica (Slovenia), Telecommunication Systems Journal, Journal of Telecommunications and Information Technology, Analele International Journal of Computers, Communications & Control, Real-Time Journal.
