CALL FOR PAPERS

16th Conference on Computer Science and Intelligence Systems (FedCSIS 2021)

Online, 2-5 September, 2021
Strict submission deadline: May 24, 2021, 23:59:59 pm HST (no extensions)
(FedCSIS IEEE conference number: #52320)
 

COVID-19 Information

While we have planned the conference to take place in Sofia, Bulgaria, slow progress in fighting the global pandemic has forced us to switch to the fully online mode. We plan to organize FedCSIS 2022 as an on-site conference.
 
Please feel free to forward this announcement to your colleagues and associates who could be interested in it.
 
KEY FACTS: expected Proceedings: IEEE Digital Library; indexing: Scopus and Web of Science; 13 Technical Sessions in 5 Tracks; Doctoral Symposium; conference fee covers preparation of proceedings volume.
 
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 intelligence systems.
 
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 and 2020; we are told that WoS is experiencing unusual delays). Information about FedCSIS indexing / bibliometry / rankings can be found at: https://www.fedcsis.org/2021/indexation.
