Volume 1: Introduction

Dear Reader, it is our pleasure to present to you Position Papers of the 2013 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS), which took place in Kraków, Poland, on September 8–11, 2013. This is the first year when position papers have been introduced as a separate category of contributions. This decision was grounded in the observation that, with decreasing acceptance rate of full papers (this year approximately 43%), a number of valuable contributions have to be rejected. They often represent initial stages of interesting projects, descriptions of industrial applications, etc. Therefore, in order to not to lose interesting contributions, this volume was created.

FedCSIS was organized by the Polish Information Processing Society (Mazowsze Chapter), AGH University of Mining and Metalurgy, Wrocław University of Economics and Systems Research Institute Polish Academy of Sciences. FedCSIS was organized in technical cooperation with: IEEE Region 8, Computer Society Chapter Poland, Gdańsk Computer Society Chapter, Poland, Polish Chapter of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS), ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, Łódź ACM Chapter, SERSC: Science & Engineering Research Support soCiety, Informatics Europe, Asociación de Técnicos de Informática, Committee of the Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences, The Polish Association for Information Systems, Polish Society for Business Informatics and Polish Chamber of Commerce for High Technology. Furthermore, the 8th International Symposium Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AAIA'13) was organized in technical cooperation with: IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Computational Collective Intelligence, International Rough Set Society, International Fuzzy Systems Association, Romanian Association for Artificial Intelligence, and Polish Neural Networks Society.
