5th Doctoral Symposium on Recent Advances in Information Technology (DS–RAIT'18)

Poznań, Poland, 9-12 September, 2018

The 5th international Doctoral Symposium on Recent Advances in Information Technology (DS-RAIT 2018) will be held  as a satellite event of the Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2018).

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.
