CALL FOR PAPERS
15th Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2020)
Sofia, Bulgaria, 6-9 September, 2020
Strict submission deadline: July 3, 2020, 23:59:59 pm HST (no extensions)
(FedCSIS IEEE conference number: #49059)
Taking into account lack of certainty that it will be possible to organize the conference on-site (in Sofia) in September, we have decided that there is no other way but to organize the conference 100% telepresence based. This decision makes us very sad, but we believe that this is the best one we can make. This decision has consequences. First, the new conference fee has been reduced to 150 euro. Second, since we do not have to deal with local arrangements, we can use the extra time we have to establish the new submission deadline. It is now July 3, 2020 for the regular papers. We are looking forward to e-meet you.
KEY FACTS: expected Proceedings: IEEE Digital Library; indexing: Web of Science (since 2012); 22 Technical Sessions in 5 Tracks; Doctoral Symposium; conference fee covers 4 lunches and 3 social events; Sofia ñ capital of Bulgaria, city history goes back to Roman times (with some, recently uncovered and made available to see, fascinating ruins of Serdika ñ which is how Sofia was known during Tracian and Roman times).
FedCSIS is an annual international conference, this year organized jointly by the Polish Information Processing Society (PTI), IEEE Poland Section Computer Society Chapter and Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. The mission of the FedCSIS Conference Series is to provide a highly acclaimed forum in computer science and information systems. We invite researchers from around the world to contribute their research results and participate in Technical Sessions focused on their scientific and professional interests in computer science and information systems.
As in the previous years, FedCSIS 2020 will host a data mining challenge. It will be organized on a, recently re-designed, Knowledge Pit platform: https://knowledgepit.ml
The specific topic will be announced shortly, please check the competition site (or the conference portal). There will also be a special session devoted to this challenge at the FedCSIS 2020 conference.
Since 2012, Proceedings of the FedCSIS conference are indexed in the Web of Science, SCOPUS and other indexing services. This already includes Proceedings of FedCSIS 2018 (we are awaiting the decision for the FedCSIS 2019). Information about FedCSIS indexing / bibliometry / rankings can be found at: https://www.fedcsis.org/2020/indexation
