RCIS 2018
Twelfth International Conference on Research Challenges in Information Science, May 29-31, 2018, Nantes, France
RCIS has become a recognized conference on research challenges in information sciences. The goal of RCIS is to bring together scientists, researchers, engineers and practitioners from a wide range of information science fields and provide opportunities for knowledge sharing and dissemination. Organized for the 12th time in a row, RCIS 2018 will be held from May 29-31, 2018 and is co-located with the 36th French conference INFORSID 2018.

Topics of Interest
At RCIS 2018, among other regular topics a particular attention will be given to the special topic: “Enterprise of the future”. This theme is intended to explore how Information Science, in terms of methods and tools, can help enterprises and organisations face a wide range of challenges, thanks to the power of Information. Indeed, enterprises need to be able to continually innovate as fast as (or faster than) their highly fluctuating environments and markets. However, complexity of information representation and exploitation, decision-making processes at multiple levels and their important –often unforeseen - effects, drastically impact enterprises agility and innovation. How does Information Science currently influence the future of enterprises and how can it influence it in a more efficient and innovative way? What are the main strategic challenges? How can Information Sciences strengthen and become an unavoidable and fundamental pillar of the Enterprise of the Future?
