7th Doctoral Symposium on Recent Advances in Information Technology (DS–RAIT'20)

Sofia, Bulgaria, 6 - 9 September, 2020

Committee

COVID-19  Information (NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE, NEW FEE FOR REMOTE PARTICIPATION)
 
Taking into account lack of certainty that it will be possible to organize the conference on-site (in Sofia) in September, we have decided that there is no other way but to organize the conference 100% telepresence based. This decision makes us very sad, but we believe that this is the best one we can make. This decision has consequences. First, the new conference fee has been reduced to 150 euro. Second, since we do not have to deal with local arrangements, we can use the extra time we have to establish the new submission deadline. It is now July 3, 2020 for the regular papers. We are looking forward to e-meet you.
 
FedCSIS organizers

The 7th international Doctoral Symposium on Recent Advances in Information Technology (DS-RAIT'20) will be held  as a satellite track of the Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2020).

The aim of this meeting is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas between early-stage researchers, in Computer Science and Information Systems, PhD students in particular. Furthermore, the symposium will provide all participants an opportunity to get feedback on their studies from experienced members of the IT research community invited to chair all DS-RAIT thematic sessions. Therefore, submission of research proposals with limited preliminary results is strongly encouraged.

Besides receiving specific advice for their contributions all participants will be invited to attend plenary lectures on conducting high-quality research studies, excellence in scientific writing and issues related to intellectual property in IT research. Authors of the two most outstanding submissions will have a possibility to present their papers in a form of short plenary lecture.
