Call for Position Papers

2018 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS)

Poznan, Poland, 9-12 September, 2018


Submission deadline: June 12, 2018

The FedCSIS 2018 Federated Conference invites submissions of POSITION PAPERS to its respective events. Position papers must not exceed 8 pages and they should relate to an ongoing research or experience. Position papers will be presented by the authors alongside regular papers. Position papers may be also submitted as DEMO PAPERS and presented as demonstrations of software tools and products. They should describe non-for-profit software tools in a prototype-, alpha-, or beta-version.


  • -EMERGING RESEARCH PAPERS present preliminary research results from work-in-progress based on sound scientific approach but presenting work not completely validated as yet. They must describe precisely the research problem and its rationale. They must also define the intended future work including the expected benefits from solution to the tackled problem.
  • -CHALLENGE PAPERS propose and describe research challenges in theory or practice of computer science and information systems. The papers in this category must be based on deep understanding of existing research or industrial problems and should be defining new promising research directions.

Position paper submission and publication

Position papers will be published as a Volume of the Annals of Computer Science and Information Systems series (, with an ISBN, ISSN and DOI numbers. The papers will be submitted for indexing to DBLP Computer Science Bibliography and Google Scholar. The Annals-CSIS volume will NOT be placed in the IEEE Digital Library and will NOT be submitted to Clarivate Analytics Web of Science.

Authors should submit a position paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure. The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference website ought to be used for all submitted papers. The required submission format is the same as the camera-ready format.
