17th Conference on Computer Science and Intelligence Systems (FedCSIS’2022)

HYBRID CONFERENCE -- Sofia, Bulgaria, 4-7 September, 2022

(CORE B Ranked, IEEE: #54150)

Strict submission deadline (position papers): June 7, 2022, 23:59:59 AoE (no extensions)

************************** COVID-19 Information ************************
Conference will take place in Sofia Bulgaria, for those who will be able to make it there. For those who will not be able to reach Sofia, online participation will be made available.

The FedCSIS 2022 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.


The FedCSIS 2022 consists of five conference Tracks, hosting Technical Sessions:


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 (for detailed information SEE. 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)
  • Young Researcher Paper Award (€400)
  • Industry Cooperation Award (€400)
  • International Cooperation Award (€400)

All papers accepted to FedCSIS 2022 are eligible to be considered as the award winners.

This award will be granted independently from awards given by individual FedCSIS events (Tracks and/or Technical Sessions).

Past Award winners can be found HERE.


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 (see, also: 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. Please check, and carefully follow, the instructions and templates provided. Papers that are out of the conference scope of the selected event, or that contain any form of (self)plagiarism will be rejected without reviews. All position papers will be refereed before inclusion in the conference program.
