Call for Posters and Demos

RCIS has become a recognized conference on research challenges in information sciences. Organized for the 12th time in a row, RCIS 2018 will be held from May 29-31, 2018.

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.
At RCIS 2018, among other regular topics a special 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?

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 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 2018. Authors are invited to submit their proposal in English.

The submission site address is https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2018 where you can choose “Posters & Demos papers Section”.

Three members of the program committee will review submissions, and selected proposals will be published in the RCIS’2018 Conference Proceedings published by IEEE Xplore digital library. Consequently, posters and demonstrations, paper submissions for posters and demonstrations must be formatted using the IEEE 2-column format (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html). In case you wish to format your paper according to this template you may use the IEEE PDF eXpress tool (http://www.pdf-express.org/) to convert your source file into an 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 the IEEE PDF eXpress will soon be found on the RCIS 2018 web site. It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation or checking of a compliant PDF file and does not work as a submission; you must still submit your final paper through the submission site indicated above.

For more information about how to use IEEE PDF eXpress, please see rcis2018/express.php

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.
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). Only posters and demos that have been presented by their authors during the conference will be published in IEEE Proceedings.
Posters and Demos submission deadline: February 2nd, 2018 February 9th, 2018 “Anywhere on Earth”, i.e., UTC-12
Authors notification and registration opening: March 28th, 2018
