CALL FOR EVENTS
Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems
Lodz, Poland, 13-16 September, 2015
The 2015 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems cordially invites you to consider contributing an Event (conference, symposium, workshop, consortium meeting, research dissemination meeting, special session). The FedCSIS multi-conference consists of a significant number of recurring Events and it welcomes proposals for new Events until October 31, 2014. The Events can run over any span of time within the conference dates; from half-day to three days.
Lodz, the third-largest Polish city, located in the central Poland south-west of Warsaw. The former textile industry empire, today is an academic city, desirable location for creative industries, home of modern arts and grand events.
The FedCSIS Events provide a platform for bringing together researchers, practitioners, and academia to present and discuss ideas, challenges, and potential solutions on established or emerging topics related to research and practice in computer science and information systems.
The Events will be selected based on the scientific/technical interest and/or their relevance to practitioners in their topics, the clarity of the proposal in addressing the requested information, the innovativeness of the Event topics, and the fit with the FedCSIS multi-conference program.
The FedCSIS 2014 - held in Warsaw, Poland - attracted 430 papers, of which 150 were accepted as full papers (acceptance rate of approximately 35%). Some events accepted additionally short and position papers. FedCSIS 2015 accepted papers will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, while position papers in a separate volume of the Annals of Computer Science and Information systems series (publication process will be completed by October 31, 2015).
As in previous years, FedCSIS preprints will be published on a USB memory stick given to FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented during the conference will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library proceedings (or as position papers, published in a separate volume), and posted at the conference WWW site. The IEEE DL proceedings will be published with an ISBN and ISSN numbers (and, an IEEE Catalog number), under a nonexclusive copyright. Such copyright implies that Events' organizers can and, indeed, are strongly encouraged to invite extended and revised papers for post-conference publications in high-quality journals, edited volumes, etc.

- The nature of the Event.
- The title of the Event, and a clear description of the topic, including a brief justification.
- The complete contact information of the Event organizers, including a link to their personal websites, and an overview of previous experiences with organization of scientific events.
- Preliminary list of PC members who have agreed to join.
- Indication of the expected number of papers/attendees to attend the Event.
- Information of expected post-Event publications, of extended and revised papers, in high-quality journals, edited volumes, etc.
Event organizers should email their proposals (in a single pdf file) by October 31, 2014, to the FedCSIS Secretariat at: firstname.lastname@example.org
