Knowledge and technology are constantly evolving as a result of research & development, including in Information Science. However, recent fast progress in areas such as AI, quantum computing, and extended reality might lead to a revolution in a short time, not only to an evolution. How we collect and use information might radically change. The impact, challenges, and concerns from the use of advanced AI (e.g., large language models), more powerful computing systems, and new digital worlds are common topics in our discussions nowadays. They also affect other areas, including security, ethics, and education. Is a revolution really about to happen? Or is it only a new evolution? Will this depend on the Information Science areas in which progress is made or those affected? What role will base technologies such as data quality models, machine learning, conceptual models, and ontologies play? What will standards and best-practices need to consider?
RCIS welcomes submissions from the whole spectrum of the information science field. The list of themes and topics includes, but is not limited to:
|A1. Information Systems and their Engineering||A2. User-Oriented Approaches|
|A3. Data and Information Management||A4. Business Process Management|
|A5. Domain-specific IS Engineering||A6. Data Science|
|A7. Information Infrastructures||A8. Reflective Research and Practice|
RCIS 2024 will be held in Guimarães, Portugal, hosted by Department of Information Systems of University of Minho and by CCG/ZGDV.
