KEY FACTS: Proceedings: submitted to IEEE Digital Library; indexing: DBLP, Scopus and Web of Science; 21 Technical Sessions in 5 Tracks; Doctoral Symposium; Data Mining Competition.

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. It is technically sponsored by a number of IEEE units and other professional organizations (for the full list, see the conference site). The mission of the FedCSIS Conference Series is to provide a highly acclaimed forum in computer science and intelligence 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 intelligence systems.

Since June 2021, FedCSIS is ranked CORE B. This resulted in FedCSIS delivering 70 parametric points to Polish researchers (since November 2021). 

Since 2012, Proceedings of the FedCSIS conference are indexed in SCOPUS, DBLP and other indexing services. Information about FedCSIS indexing / bibliometry / rankings.

Keynote Speakers

Data Mining Competition – Predicting the Costs of Forwarding Contracts 

The topic of this year's data mining competition is prediction of costs related to the execution of forwarding contracts. The data sets will contain multiple years of history of orders appearing on the transport exchange, along with details such as the type of order, basic characteristics of the shipped goods (e.g., dimensions, special requirements), as well as the expected route that a driver will have to cover. The task will be to develop a predictive model that will assess the actual cost of individual orders as accurately as possible (detailed information). Prizes for best solutions are:

  • 1,000 USD for the winning solution (+ the cost of one FedCSIS’2022 registration) 
  • 500 USD for the 2nd place solution (+ the cost of one FedCSIS’2022 registration)
  • 250 USD for the 3rd place solution (+ the cost of one FedCSIS’2022 registration)

The Professor Zdzislaw Pawlak Awards are given in the following categories: 

  • Best Paper Award (€600): the best out of all papers accepted to the conference;
  • Young Researcher Award (€400): the best out of papers whereby all authors are younger than 40 years;
