Position Papers of the 17th Conference on Computer Science and Intelligence Systems
Dear Reader, it is our pleasure to present to you Position Papers of the 17th Conference on Computer Science and Intelligence Systems (FedCSIS’2022), in Sofia, Bulgaria, and in the hybrid mode.
Position papers 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 the intended future work including the expected benefits from solution to the tackled problem. Subsequently, they may be more conceptual than experimental.
The main Conference Chair of FedCSIS 2022 was Stefka Fidanova, while Nina Dobrinkova 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 Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
FedCSIS 2022 was technically co-sponsored by: IEEE Bulgarian Section, IEEE Poland Section, IEEE Czechoslovakia Section Computer Society Chapter, IEEE Poland Section Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society Chapter, IEEE Poland Section Computational Intelligence Society Chapter, IEEE Poland Section Control System Society Chapter, Committee of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Mazovia Cluster ICT, Poland and Bulgarian Section of SIAM.
Moreover, last year the FedCSIS conference series formed the strategic alliance with QED Software, a Polish software company developing AI-based technologies and acting as the technological co-founder in the AI-driven start-ups. This collaboration has been continued.
During FedCSIS’2022, the keynote lectures were delivered by:
- Krassimir Atanassov, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria: “Remarks on index matrices”,
- Chris Cornelis, Ghent University, Department of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics: “Hybridization of Fuzzy Sets and Rough Sets: Achievements and Opportunities”,
- Ivan Lukovic, University of Belgrade, Faculty of Organizational Sciences: “Organizational Capability for Information Management – Do We Feel a Big Data Crisis?”,
- Stefano Mariani on behalf of Franco Zambonelli (due to serious health issues encountered right before the conference), University of Modena e Reggio Emilia, Italy: “Individual and collective self-development”.
Moreover, this year, two special guests delivered invited talks:
- Bogusław Cyganek, who was awarded the 2021 Wiley-IEEE Press Award for his recent book “Introduction to Programming with C++ for Engineers”.
- Andrzej Skowron, who deliverd talk: “Rough Sets Turn 40: From Information Systems to Intelligent Systems”, which was devoted to the 40th anniversary of introduction, by late prof. Zdzisław Pawlak, of the theory of Rough Sets.
FedCSIS 2022 consisted of five Tracks and a special event for Doctoral School Students. Within each Track, topical Technical Sessions have been organized. Each Technical Session was split into fully on site and fully online sub-sessions. The on-site part of the conference took place in the facilities of the Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre of Excellence in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Some of Technical Sessions have been associated with the FedCSIS conference series for many years, while some of them are relatively new. The role of the technical Sessions is to focus and enrich discussions on selected areas, pertinent to the general scope of each Track. The list of Tracks, and topical Technical Sessions organized within their scope, was as follows.
- Track 1 Artificial Intelligence in Applications (17th Symposium AAIA’22)

The program of FedCSIS 2022 required a dedicated effort of many people. We would like to express our warmest gratitude to all Committee members, of each Track and each Technical Session, for their hard work in attracting and later refereeing 290 submissions.
We thank the authors of papers for their great contribution to the theory and practice of computing and intelligence systems. We are grateful to the invited speakers for sharing their knowledge and wisdom with the participants.
Last, but not least, we thank Stefka Fidanova and Nina Dobrinkova. It should be stressed that they made all the preparations to organize the conference in Bulgaria for three years in a row, while only in 2022 the conference actually happened there. They also worked with us diligently to adapt the conference formula to organize it in hybrid mode. We are very grateful for all your efforts!
We hope that you had an inspiring conference. We also hope to meet you again for the 18th Conference on Computer Science and Intelligence Systems (FedCSIS 2023) which will take place in Warsaw, Poland on September 17-20, 2023.
