18th Research Challenges in Information Science

Information Science: Evolution or Revolution?

Guimarães, Portugal, 14-17 May, 2024

Call for Workshop Proposals

The 18th. International Conference on Research Challenges in Information Science (RCIS 2024) welcomes proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. The workshops will aim to promote the exchange, cross-fertilization, and dissemination of new ideas among the members of the RCIS community, both researchers and practitioners.

Apart from traditional paper presentations, we encourage discussion and working sessions among the workshop participants to facilitate involvement and interaction. We invite proposals that tackle research challenge ideas in the scope of information science and are in line with the conference theme (Information Science: Evolution or Revolution?) and topics. The workshops can be half- or full-day and will take place on May 14, 2024.

Services Provided by RCIS
  • EasyChair for the management of the workshop submissions (each organizer will be made chair of its own workshop);
  • Local organizational infrastructure and administrative support (registration, badges, etc.). In particular, all accommodation issues (e.g., rooms, meals) as well as the management of the registrations and the financing/administrative issues will be handled by the RCIS 2024 Organization Board;
