(Proceedings to be published by Springer)


RCIS aims to bring together scientists, researchers, engineers and
practitioners from a wide range of information science fields and to provide
opportunities for knowledge sharing and dissemination. RCIS 2021 will
continue paying attention to traditional topics at the conference; in addition,
we solicit submissions aligned with the special theme “Information Science
and global crisis". Global crisis, as the pandemic we are experiencing in
these days, natural disasters, wars and international political crisis, are
challenging Information Science to help building effective management
solutions, to learn from previous experience how to prevent them, and to
support Humans keep on performing core activities, as education, and
communication. The diversity of crises’ causes, the quality of the collected
data as well as the complexity of the underlying mechanisms are among the
relevant research challenges.

RCIS welcomes submissions from the whole spectrum of the information science field. The list of themes and topics includes, but is not limited to:

Papers shall be formatted according to the Springer LNCS/LNBIP conference
proceedings template (for LaTeX and Word): .
Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review forother conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS
2021. Papers should be in English and must be associated to one of the
following categories:

Technical solution papers (max 16 pages Springer) present solutions that
are novel or significantly improve existing approaches. 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 follow-up research.

Evaluation papers (max 16 pages Springer) 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.

Industrial practice and experience papers (max 16 pages Springer)
thoroughly present problems or challenges encountered in practice,
elaborate on success or failure with existing approaches, or report on
industrial practice (e.g., methods and tools). A paper in this category shall
provide a clear context, detail the problem or the industrial practice, and
explain the lessons learned.

Work in progress papers (max 8 pages Springer) present relevant
preliminary results across the spectrum of information science. These
papers can either present a novel technical solution, or report on a
preliminary evaluation of a technique.

Please note that the maximum length of the paper includes references, appendices, etc.

The submission site is .

By submitting a paper, the authors agree that at least one of them will
register to the conference and present the paper. The appearance of a paper
in the Springer proceedings is dependent on the registration of one author
within the early registration deadline on March 29, 2021.

We adopt a single-blind review format, meaning that the author
names are included in the paper itself under the paper title.
