***************************** COVID-19 Information ****************************

While we have planned the 2021 conference to take place in Sofia,
Bulgaria, slow progress in fighting the global pandemic has forced us
to switch to the fully online mode. Therefore, we plan to organize
FedCSIS 2022 in Sofia, and hope that by that time COVID will be over,
and we will be able to meet in person.

Programming languages (PLs) are programmers' most basic tools. With
appropriate programming languages one can drastically reduce the cost
of building new applications as well as maintaining existing ones. In
the last decades there have been many advances in PL technology in
traditional programming paradigms such as functional, logic, and
object-oriented programming, as well as the development of new
paradigms such as aspect-oriented programming. The main driving force
was and will be to better express programmers' ideas. Therefore,
research in programming languages is an endless activity and the core
of computer science. New language features, new programming paradigms,
and better compile-time and run-time mechanisms can be foreseen in the

The aim of this session is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas
and experience in topics concerned with programming languages and
systems. Original papers and implementation reports are invited in all
areas of programming languages.

This year, a special attention will be given to submissions on
programming research in mainstream languages. That can include, but is
not limited to:
    • porting existing results from research languages to mainstream
ones to examine their interplay with other features than those
carefully cherry-picked for the targeted research. And,
    • gauging generality of research results by studying their
obtainability using different sets of features than originally thought

Such submission needs to clarify the added value of performing their
research in a mainstream language (over a lab one).

Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
    • Software language engineering
    • Interplay between languages and machine learning (and other
branches of AI), especially for Code Repair and Code Smells
    • Interplay between languages and security
    • Automata theory and applications
    • Compiling techniques
    • Context-oriented programming languages to specify the behavior
of software systems and dynamic adaptations
    • Domain-specific languages
    • Formal semantics and syntax
    • Generative and generic programming
    • Grammarware and grammar based systems
    • Knowledge engineering languages, integration of knowledge
engineering and software engineering
    • Languages and tools for trustworthy computing
    • Language theory and applications
    • Language concepts, design and implementation
    • Markup languages (XML)
    • Metamodeling and modeling languages
    • Model-driven engineering languages and systems
    • Practical experiences with programming languages
    • Program analysis, optimization and verification
    • Program generation and transformation
    • Programming paradigms (aspect-oriented, functional, logic,
object-oriented, etc.)
    • Programming tools and environments
    • Proof theory for programs
    • Specification languages
    • Type systems
    • Virtual machines and just-in-time compilation
    • Visual programming languages


The Professor Zdzisław Pawlak Awards are given in two categories: Best
Paper and Best Student Paper. Each award carries a prize of 300 EUR
founded by the Mazowsze Chapter of the Polish Information Processing
Society. The awards have been originally associated with the
International Symposium on Advanced Artificial Intelligence in
Applications (AAIA) held every year as a part of FedCSIS. Currently,
all papers accepted to FedCSIS are eligible to be considered as the
award winners.

This award will be awarded independently from awards given by
individual FedCSIS events (Tracks and/or Technical Sessions).

Past Award winners can be found here:


    • Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF or MSWord file).
    • The total length of a paper should not exceed 10 pages IEEE
style (including tables, figures and references). IEEE style templates
are available here.
    • Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their
scientific merit and relevance to the workshop.
    • Preprints containing accepted papers will be published on a USB
memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants.
    • Only papers presented at the conference will be published in
Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore®
    • Conference proceedings will be published in a volume with ISBN,
ISSN and DOI numbers and posted at the conference WWW site.
    • Conference proceedings will be indexed in BazEkon and submitted
for indexation in: Thomson Reuters - Conference Proceedings Citation
Index, SciVerse Scopus, Inspec, Index Copernicus, DBLP Computer
Science Bibliography and Google Scholar
    • Organizers reserve right to move accepted papers between FedCSIS
technical sessions.
    • Extended versions of selected papers presented during the
conference will be published as Special Issue(s).


+ Paper submission (strict deadline): May 24, 2021, 23:59:59 (UCT-12;
there will be no extension)
+ Position paper submission: June 14, 2021
+ Author notification: July 5, 2021
+ Final paper submission and registration: July 26, 2021
