CALL FOR POSTERS AND DEMOS

RCIS has become a recognized conference on research challenges in information sciences. Organized for the 13th time in a row, RCIS 2019 will be held from May 29-31, 2019, in Brussels, Belgium, Capital of Europe.

RCIS will feature posters in a poster session and offer the opportunity for demonstrations of tools in a demonstration session. Both sessions will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to showcase their work, to interact with conference participants, and to obtain feedback on on-going research and advanced prototypes and products from knowledgeable conference attendees:

  • Posters are intended to convey a research result and are not advertisements for commercial software packages. While posters need not describe completed work, they should report on research for which at least some preliminary results are available.
  • Demonstrations should directly and actively involve the exhibition and display of software prototypes, research tools and associated materials that illustrate research work in progress and serve as ground for discussion of research ideas.

Topics of Interest
At RCIS 2019, among other regular topics a special attention will be given to the special topic:“Towards a Design Science for Information Systems”. With the advent of ubiquitous computing, today’s information systems are designed, developed, used, and tested on a very wide spectrum of devices and computing platforms, by a diverse population of stakeholders (e.g., analysts, designers, developers, end users) for an ever wider range of tasks carried out in multiple physical and psychological environments, thus inducing many different contexts of use. Facing this variety of contexts of use, design science is expected to help people producing information systems that are better tailored to their needs when interacting with these systems. This year’s RCIS theme aims to explore the role played by design science in every stage of the development life cycle of information systems, which includes meta-models, models, languages, notations, methods, and software tools for supporting these stages.RCIS welcomes submissions from a diverse spectrum of information science. RCIS welcomes posters and demos submissions from any domain of Information Science. The list of interested topics includes, but is not limited to:

Submission Guidelines
Posters and demonstrations proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file with no more than 2 pages. The two pages shall contain an abstract describing the research content of the poster or what is going to be demonstrated, along with the significance of the contribution to IS technologies, title, authors, institutional affiliations and electronic contact information. Proposals that exceed the limit of 2 pages (IEEE 2-column format) will be rejected without review.

Proposals that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2019. Authors are invited to submit their proposal in English.

The submission site address is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2019 where you can choose “Posters & Demos papers Section”.

Poster Presentation
Authors of accepted posters will receive an opportunity to complete a short oral presentation during a special poster session included in the main program. Well-crafted posters will tell the story well by themselves, but authors of posters are expected to be available to describe and discuss the work presented in the poster during the session

The poster dimensions will be of A0 type, that is 84 cm by 119 cm (33” by 47”), with poster content mounted on rectangular poster board we will provide. The layout may consist of several individual sheets of paper or a monolithic large sheet.
Demos Presentation
Authors of accepted demonstration proposals will have a chance to present their material to conference attendees during a special demonstration session included in the main program. Authors of demonstrations are expected to be available to present, describe and discuss the work behind the prototype during the session.

Authors should bring to the session the material they need to present the demo. Any special request should be communicated sufficiently in advance and agreed with the conference local organizing committee.


By submitting a poster or demo paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of them register to the conference and present the poster or the demo (at least one registration for each accepted paper, poster or demo).
