Preface Preface (hide)

Dear Reader, it is our pleasure to present to you Position Papers of the 2018 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS), which took place in Poznań, Poland, on September 9-12, 2018.

We consider position papers to be important enough to recognize them as a separate publication. As you will see, they comprise two categories of contributions – challenge papers and emerging research papers. Challenge papers propose and describe research challenges in theory or practice of computer science and information systems. Papers in this category are based on deep understanding of existing research or industrial problems. Based on such understanding and experience, they define new exciting research directions and show why these directions are crucial to the society at large. Emerging research papers present preliminary research results from work-in-progress based on sound scientific approach but presenting work not completely validated as yet. They describe precisely the research problem and its rationale. They also define precisely the intended future work including the expected benefits from solution to the tackled problem. Subsequently, they may be more conceptual than experimental.

FedCSIS 2018 was Chaired by prof. Krzysztof Jassem, while dr. Paweł Skórzewski acted as the Chair of the Organizing Committee. This year, FedCSIS was organized by the Polish Information Processing Society (Mazovia Chapter), IEEE Poland Section Computer Society Chapter, Systems Research Institute Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw University of Technology, Wrocław University of Economics, and Adam Mickiewicz University.

FedCSIS 2018 was technically co-sponsored by: IEEE Region 8, IEEE Poland Section, IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics, IEEE Czechoslovakia Section Computer Society Chapter, IEEE Poland Section Gdańsk Computer Society Chapter, SMC Technical Committee on Computational Collective Intelligence, IEEE Poland Section Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society Chapter, IEEE Poland Section Control System Society Chapter, IEEE Poland Section Computational Intelligence Society Chapter, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, International Federation for Information Processing, Committee of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Operational and Systems Research Society, Mazovia Cluster ICT Poland and Eastern Cluster ICT Poland. FedCSIS 2018 was sponsored by Intel, GAMBIT, Samsung, and Poznań Science and Technology Park.

During FedCSIS 2018, keynote lectures have been delivered by:

  • Aksit, Mehmet, University of Twente, “The Role of Computer Science and Software Technology in Organizing Universities for Industry 4.0 and Beyond”
  • Bosch, Jan, Chalmers University Technology, “Towards a Digital Business Operating System”
  • Duch, Włodzisław, Nicolaus Copernicus University, “Neurocognitive informatics for understanding brain functions”
  • O'Connor, Rory, V., Dublin City University, “Demystifying the World of ICT Standardisation: An Insiders Viewpoint”

FedCSIS 2018 consisted of the following events (conferences, symposia, workshops, special sessions). These events were grouped into FedCSIS conference areas, of various degree of integration. Specifically, those listed without indication of the year 2018 signify "abstract areas" with no direct paper submissions to them (but with submissions to their enclosed events).

Each paper, found in this volume, was refereed by at least two referees.

The program of FedCSIS required a dedicated effort of many people. Each event constituting FedCSIS had its own Organizing and Program Committee. We would like to express our warmest gratitude to all Committee members for their hard work in attracting and later refereeing 394 regular submissions.

We thank the authors of papers for their great contribution to research and practice in computing and information systems. We thank the invited speakers for sharing their knowledge and wisdom with the participants. Finally, we thank all those responsible for staging the conference in Poznań. Organizing a conference of this scope and level could only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a highly capable team taking charge of such matters as conference registration system, finances, the venue, social events, catering, handling all sorts of individual requests from the authors, preparing the conference rooms, etc.

We hope you had an inspiring conference and an unforgettable stay in the beautiful city of Poznań. We hope to meet you again for FedCSIS 2019 in Leipzig, Germany.
