Call For Papers
The 11th European Computer Science Summit, ECSS 2015, is the meeting place for anyone interested in issues of research, education, and policy in Information and Computer Sciences. It is a unique opportunity to meet some of the leading decision makers in Informatics research and education, and discuss the critical issues of the discipline.

Call for Position Papers - "The Future of Informatics and Informatics of the Future"

Informatics is transforming into a societal technology – raising questions not only in research, but also technology and policy.   ECCS 2015 is an event to discuss and determine the future of Informatics and the Informatics of the future. To determine the spectrum of the opinions we call for submission of position papers for the ECCS 2015.

We invite position statements including, but not restricted to, the following topics:

    Informatics and Society: What is the role of Informatics in society? Should we influence policy? How should we influence policy? What is the ethics of Informatics? Should we do everything with data because we can? What should be ethical principles of researchers?
    The role of Informatics in the sciences: Is Informatics still just a support science? Are we getting too fragmented?
    Research (group) and / or faculty of the future: How will computer scientists have to evolve? Factors to consider are local vs. global, mobility and connection, interdisciplinarity, problem vs. idea driven, relation to industry (especially the big ones), funding agencies and funding models (financial autonomy of universities and / or defined programs of agencies)

The position papers submitted will be screened, and if accepted, be published on the Informatics Europe website as well as submitted as CEUR-WS Proceedings. From the accepted position papers 10 submissions will be invited for a poster presentation during the ECCS 2015 conference in Vienna.

Format and Submission Procedure

We invite 2-4 page submissions in the CS Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes Format from Springer (see

We request authors to provide the submission under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license ( and provide a statement to reflect this into a footnote on the first page of the paper.
