You mean you write in Polish at your universities?

(Not to say LaTeX, BibTeX, etc. cannot be used outside
them walls of science, of course: I always said if
writers learned LaTeX - and some HTML and CSS for PR -
they would put the entire publishing industry out
of business.)

I have no experience with amsrefs. I am unsure if
I use BibTeX or BibLaTeX.

This is the part of the Makefile that does the .bib
file:

    biber -q ${name} # get .bbl (from .bcf)

And this is the line in the .tex file:

    \usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex}

So when I said BibTex, probably that should
be BibLaTeX!

As for the problem with multiple authors, I haven't
came across that. I have many entries of the kind:

    @techreport{scheduling-of-mixed-criticality-applications,
        author      = {Georgia Giannopoulou and Nikolay Stoimenov and Pengcheng 
Huang and Lothar Thiele},
        title       = {Scheduling of Mixed-Criticality Applications on 
Resource-Sharing Multicore Systems},
        institution = {Computer Engineering and Networks Laboratory, ETH 
Zurich, 8092 Zurich, Switzerland},
        year        = 2013
    }

You mean the problem is, that turns out as "et. al."
in the PDF? I'm sure that can be configured if you
have a problem with it. I don't, and besides no one
care for references anyway - just put them there and
then forget about them, is what people do.
