Strict submission deadline: May 15, 2020, 23:59:59 pm HST (no extensions)

(FedCSIS IEEE conference number: #49059)

 
KEY FACTS: expected Proceedings: IEEE Digital Library; indexing: Web of Science (since 2012); 22 Technical Sessions in 5 Tracks; Doctoral Symposium; conference fee covers 4 lunches and 3 social events; Sofia ñ capital of Bulgaria, city history goes back to Roman times (with some, recently uncovered and made available to see, fascinating ruins of Serdika ñ which is how Sofia was known during Tracian and Roman times).
 
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. The mission of the FedCSIS Conference Series is to provide a highly acclaimed forum in computer science and information 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 information systems.
 
As in the previous years, FedCSIS 2020 will host a data mining challenge. It will be organized on a, recently re-designed, Knowledge Pit platform: https://knowledgepit.ml
The specific topic will be announced shortly, please check the competition site (or the conference portal). There will also be a special session devoted to this challenge at the FedCSIS 2020 conference.
 
Since 2012, Proceedings of the FedCSIS conference are indexed in the Web of Science, SCOPUS and other indexing services. This already includes Proceedings of FedCSIS 2018 (we are awaiting the decision for the FedCSIS 2019). Information about FedCSIS indexing / bibliometry / rankings can be found at: https://www.fedcsis.org/2020/indexation.
