Dear Reader, it is our pleasure to present to you Proceedings of the 17th Conference on Computer Science and Intelligence Systems (FedCSIS’2022), which took place on September 4-7, 2022, in the hybrid mode.

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)
    • Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Diagnostis Imaging (1st Workshop AI4NextGenDI'22)

Each contribution, found in this volume, was refereed by at least two referees and the acceptance rate of regular full papers was slightly below 19% (55 accepted contributions, out of 290 general submissions).

During FedCSIS 2022, for the second time, the Zdzisław Pawlak award was presented to the best papers from across the whole conference. It was done to further underscore the fact that scientific achievements of Professor Pawlak had gone far beyond Artificial Intelligence. The following contributions have been awarded in three categories:

  • In the category Best paper: Kamil Rybiński (Warsaw University of Technology, Poland) and Michał Śmiałek (Warsaw University of Technology, Poland) for the paper: “Beyond Low-Code Development: Marrying Requirements Models and Knowledge Representations”.
  • In the category Industry cooperation: Ghada Moualla (Orange Labs, France), Sebastien Bolle (Orange Labs, France), Marc Douet (Orange Labs, France) and Eric Rutten (INRIA, France) for the paper: “Self-adaptive Device Management for the IoT Using Constraint Solving”.
  • In the category Young Researcher: Eyad Kannout (University of Warsaw, Poland), Michał Grodzki (University of Warsaw, Poland) and Marek Grzegorowski (University of Warsaw, Poland) for the paper: “Utilizing Frequent Pattern Mining for Solving Cold-Start Problem in Recommender Systems”.

Moreover, the Award Committee decided to fund two extra Young Researcher distinctions:

  • Aleksandra Bączkiewicz (University of Szczecin, Poland) for the paper: “Towards Temporal Multi-Criteria Assessment of Sustainable RES Exploitation in European Countries”.
  • Aleksandra Weiss (Scientific Circle of Robotics UWM in Olsztyn, Poland), Marcin Młyński (Scientific Circle of Robotics UWM in Olsztyn, Poland) and Piotr Artiemjew (University of Warmia and Mazury, Poland) for the paper: “About Classifiers Quality Assessment: Balanced Accuracy Curve (BAC) as an alternative for ROC and PR Curve”.

All the above awards and distinctions were jointly sponsored by the Mazovia Branch of the Polish Information Processing Society and by QED Software.

FedCSIS’22 also hosted the Data Mining Competition (already for the 5th time during the history of the FedCSIS conferences) co-organized by QED Software at the online platform KnowledgePit, and sponsored by Control System Software, a Polish company which develops decision support and optimization systems in the areas of transportation, spedition, and logistics.

The competition attracted 130 teams from 24 countries. The papers describing the most interesting solutions submitted to the competition were included in the FedCSIS 2022 proceedings in the special section of Track 1. The following papers represent the best solutions awarded by Control System Software:

  • Paper describing the winning solution: Dymitr Ruta (Khalifa University, UAE), Ming Liu (Khalifa University, UAE), Ling Cen (Khalifa University, UAE), Quang Hieu Vu (VNG Corporation, Vietnam), “Diversified gradient boosting ensembles for prediction of the cost of forwarding contracts”.
  • Paper describing the 2nd best solution: Haitao Xiao, (Chinese Academy of Sciences, China), Yuling Liu (Chinese Academy of Sciences, China), Dan Du (Chinese Academy of Sciences, China), Zhigang Lu (Chinese Academy of Sciences, China), “An Approach for Predicting the Costs of Forwarding Contracts using Gradient Boosting”.
  • Paper describing the 3rd best solution: Quang Hieu Vu (VNG Corporation, Vietnam), Ling Cen (Khalifa University, UAE), Dymitr Ruta (Khalifa University, UAE), Ming Liu (Khalifa University, UAE), “Key Factors to Consider when Predicting the Costs of Forwarding Contracts”.
  • Paper describing the most practical solution: Sławomir Pioroński (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland), Tomasz Górecki (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland), “Using gradient boosting trees to predict the costs of forwarding contracts”.

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.
