Paper Submission Instructions

Types of paper accepted for submission to the FedCSIS conference series are described here.

For all FedCSIS events, the review process is arranged as the standard single-blind peer-review process:

  1. The names of the reviewers are hidden from the authors.
  2. The names of the authors are NOT hidden from the reviewers.

The authors are requested to avoid plagiarism and self-plagiarism in their submissions. Your can find in the Internet numerous guidelines e.g. "Avoiding plagiarism, self-plagiarism, and other questionable writing practices: A guide to ethical writing"  by Miguel Roig, Ph.D.


A PDF file is enough for paper submission and evaluation. Submit a paper here.

When your contribution is accepted, please, upload all your source files (i.e. all files that are necessary and sufficient for reproducing your PDF using standard software) together with PDF in one zip arichive. (Of course, you can use any other standard archiver).

After submitting the article, please, double check, if

  • You entered correct title
  • You entered correct abstract
  • You entered all the authors in correct order
  • Names of all authors have all diacritical signs

Please, note that this data will be used for Proceedings on pendrive as well as for IEEEXplore digital library. Specifically, if you made any changes of title, abstract or list of authors in the final version, please, perform this changes at the paper submission system too. Alternatively, send modified versions directly to the TeXnical editor.

All articles published in the Conference Proceedings on the CD will be placed in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. To ensure that each conference article meets the specifications required by the IEEE Xplore Digital Library and the FedCSIS high-quality standards, the final version will be produced from the author's source by our TeXnical editor. To make the processing as fast as possible, authors are kindly requested to follow the following instructions. You can send your article in any of the three formats:

  • LaTeX (prefered)
  • OpenDocument
  • MSWord (deprecated)
