10th IEEE International Conference on Research Challenges In Information Science (RCIS 2016)

1-3 June 2016, Grenoble, France


The goal of RCIS is to bring together scientists, researchers, engineers and practitioners from a wide range of information science fields and provide opportunities for knowledge sharing and dissemination. RCIS has become a recognised conference on research challenges in information sciences. Organised for the tenth time in a row, RCIS 2016 will be held from June 1-3, 2016, in Grenoble, France.

• Regular paper submission deadline: February 7, 2016 (23:59 Central European Time)

An updated version of this call can always be found in http://rcis-conf.com/


Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2016.

Papers should be in English and must be associated to one of the 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, and results must be stated clearly enough so that it is possible to validate them in later research. Maximum page count is 12.

- Evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or validate proposed solutions through scientific means, i.e. by empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, mathematical proofs, etc. The research method must be sound and appropriate. Maximum page count is 12.

- Industrial practice and experience papers present problems or challenges encountered in practice, describe success or failure stories, or report on industrial practice. The practice must be clearly described and its context must be given. Maximum page count is 12.

- Work in progress papers present relevant preliminary results that may not have been fully validated yet. The work presented should be advanced enough as to show its contribution and significance. Maximum page count is 6.

The submission website: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2016

By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of them will register to the conference and present the paper. It is expected that at least one author will register for each accepted paper.

Only papers that have been presented by their authors during the conference will be published as part of the IEEE Proceedings.

Authors of papers that obtain the highest scores in the reviewing process will be invited to submit an extended version to special issues of journals including the International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design (IGI).

Accepted papers will be submitted to IEEE for publication in IEEE Xplore digital library 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 can be found on the RCIS 2016 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 http://rcis-conf.com/rcis2016/express.php.
