    www.fedcsis.org

    The 2014 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems cordially invites you to consider contributing an Event (conference, symposium, workshop, consortium meeting, special session). The FedCSIS multi-conference consists of a significant number of recurring Events, but proposals for new associated Events are welcome until October 18, 2013. The Events can run over any span of time within the conference dates; from half-day to three days.

    Warszawa (Warsaw), the capital of Poland, is proud to be the host city of FedCSIS 2014.

    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 capacity in the FedCSIS multi-conference program.

    The 2013, FedCSIS - held in Kraków, Poland - attracted 420 papers, of which 172 articles were accepted as full papers (acceptance rate of approximately 41%). Some events accepted additionally short and position papers. FedcSIS conference full and short papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, while position papers in a separate volumeof the Annals of Computer Science and Information systems series (publication process will be completed by October 31, 2013).

    Publications

    As in previous years, FedCSIS pre-Proceedings will be published on a USB memory stick given to FedCSIS participants. Next, (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 proceedings will be published under an ISBN and ISSN numbers (and, when applicable, 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.
