RCIS 2013 is a conference of RCIS Conference Series and is sponsored by IEEE France section. This year, RCIS will be co-­located with the 31st French Conference on Information Systems (INFORSID 2013), a prominent French scientific event sharing with RCIS the interest on the field of Information Science.

Proceedings will be published by IEEE (ISBN #978-1-4673-2914-9) and will be entered on DBLP.

The Seventh International Conference on RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN INFORMATION SCIENCE aims at providing an international forum for scientists, researchers, engineers and developers from a wide range of information science areas to exchange ideas and approaches in this evolving field. While presenting research findings and state-of-art solutions, you are especially invited to share experiences on new research challenges in these main topics:

  • Information System Engineering
  • Requirements Engineering
  • Database and Information System Integration
  • Data Management
  • Information Search and Discovery
  • Software Testing
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Web Information Systems
  • Grid Computing and Cloud Computing
  • Social Computing
  • User Centred Approaches
  • Decision Information Systems
  • Knowledge Management
  • Knowledge Discovery from Data
  • Business Process Analysis, Modelling and Design
  • Business Applications
  • Information Security Risk
  • Information and Value Management

Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the conference main topics.
Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2013. Authors are invited to submit papers in English. Each submitted paper will have to be associated to one of the four following categories.

Technical solution papers present solutions that are novel or significantly improve existing solutions. A technical solution paper must include a preliminary validation of the proposed solution. Results must be stated clearly enough so that it is possible to validate them in later research (12 pages).

Evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or validate proposed solutions with scientific means, i.e. by empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, mathematical proofs, etc. The research method must be sound and appropriate (12 pages).

Industrial practice and experience papers present problems or challenges encountered in practice, relate success and failure stories, or report on industrial practice. The practice must be clearly described and its context must be given (12 pages).

Doctoral Papers are papers submitted by doctoral students only and are related to research work in progress (6 pages).

Poster papers as well as Demo papers aim to gather researchers in a forum to showcase their work and obtain feedback on on-going research from knowledgeable conference attendees (2 pages).

The submission site address is

By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of them will register to the conference and present the paper. Only papers that have been presented by their authors during the conference will be published in IEEE Proceedings.

Authors of papers that obtain the highest marks in the reviewing process will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of the International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design (IGI), to appear at the end of 2014 (vol. 5 issue 4).

Since Proceedings will be published with the IEEE Conference Publications Program through IEEE Xplore digital library, paper submissions must be formatted using the IEEE 2-column format (see Conference Templates, They should be limited to a maximum of 12 pages and be submitted in PDF format.

Please use the IEEE PDF eXpress tool ( to convert your source file into IEEE Xplore compliant PDF File or to check if your own PDF file is IEEE Xplore compliant. IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function). The conference ID for IEEE PDF eXpress tool will be provided soon on the RCIS 2013 web site. It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you must still submit your final paper through online submission.

IEEE RCIS 2013 PDF eXpress tool will open on January 1, 2013
