Professor Zdzisław Pawlak Best Paper Awards

In 2022 it will be 40 years since late Professor Zdzisław Pawlak have founded the theory of Rough Sets, one of his most recognized achievements. However, in his research, Professor Pawlak has emphasized a need of cross-disciplinary, cross-country and cross-generation cooperation. In Computer Science, there may emerge a brilliant idea in someone’s head, but it requires his or her collaborators to make it growing dynamically and then - a number of subject matter experts, from various fields, to develop its practical applications.

Inspired by the above, we broaden the range of Zdzisław Pawlak Awards. From now on, the following categories of awards will be eligible for all tracks of the FedCSIS conference (including all technical sessions within each track):

  • Best Paper Award (€600): the best out of all papers accepted to the conference;
  • Young Researcher Paper Award (€400): the best out of papers whereby all authors are younger than 40 years;
  • Industry Cooperation Award (€400): the best out of papers whereby there are at least two different authors, one working in academia and another one in industry;
  • International Cooperation Award (€400): the best out of papers whereby there are at least two different authors working in institutions located in two different countries.

We believe that all these new categories reflect the principles of Professor Pawlak’s work.

While the Best Paper Award and the Young Researcher Paper Award will be delivered under patronage of the Mazovia Branch of the Polish Information Processing Society, the Industry Cooperation Award and the International Cooperation Award will be sponsored by QED Software - a Polish company specialized in development of new AI and Data Mining products and services, following the same ideas of joint growth and research collaboration.

The awards will be decided by the committee of esteemed scientists, who had the privilege to know and cooperate with Professor Pawlak. As already mentioned, unlike at the previous FedCSIS conferences, all papers will be eligible - not only papers related to AI. We trust that this is something Zdzisław Pawlak would support as well - to look for relationships, not differences.
