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 2014 full and short papers will be published in 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, 2014).


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.

1. The nature of the Event.

2. The title of the Event, and a clear description of the topic, 
including a brief justification.

3. The complete contact information of the Event organizers, including a
