Call for papers

Original, unpublished research papers can be submitted through easychair system. They will be peer reviewed and after acceptance and presentation during the TFML conference published in Schedae Informaticae Journal.

Submission format

Papers should be prepared in English, according to the Schedae Informaticae template (LaTeX template). Page limit (including references, and other additional materials) is 8 pages (soft limit) and a hard limit of 10 pages. Papers longer than 10 pages will be rejected without reviewing. The final paper accepted for the conference should be no longer than 20 pages.

Double-blind review

Papers will be selected via a double-blind peer-review process (the reviewers will not know the identities of the authors, and vice versa). It will be up to the authors to ensure the proper anonymization of their paper. In particular, the first page cannot include names or affiliations of the authors. When referring to one's own work, use the third person, rather than the first person. Violation of the above rules may lead to rejection without review.

Submit your paper

EasyChair submission system is now open. submit your paper


All papers will be peer-reviewed. All accepted papers will be published in Schedae Informaticae Journal1. At least one author of each publication has to attend the conference and present it during oral/poster session.

1For Polish scientists, this journal is located on the B list of the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, with 11pts.
