DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM

The RCIS 2021 Doctoral Consortium is an opportunity for doctoral students
to present, discuss and develop their research project in an interdisciplinary
workshop, under the guidance of a panel of senior researchers. The Doctoral
Consortium offers nice opportunities for PhD students. Firstly, the feedback
received during the Doctoral Consortium will really benefit students who have
defined their topic, research plan and have obtained early results, but who
still have room for improving their longer-term plan. Secondly, students at all
stages of their doctoral project can meet the welcoming RCIS community and
widen their network of contacts.

The Doctoral Consortium has the following objectives:
• Provide a platform for students to present their work and to meet other
peers and be familiar with different research topics and methods. 
• Provide feedback on students' current research and guidance on future
research directions.
• Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars and a
spirit of collaborative research and networking.
• Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other
researchers.

Interested PhD students are invited to submit papers, in agreement with
their supervisors, addressing the instructions that are provided on the
online call: http://www.rcis-conf.com/rcis2021/callDoctoral.php .

Papers shall be formatted according to the Springer LNCS/LNBIP conference
proceedings template (for LaTeX and Word):
https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines .
Submissions must be written in English, and must be authored by the student
only. The maximum length of the paper should be eight (8) pages, including
references, appendices, etc. The submission site address is
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2021
where you can choose the "RCIS2021_Doctoral_Consortium" track.

Doctoral Consortium Chairs
• Xavier Franch, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain
• Renata Guizzardi, University of Twente, The Netherlands

Doctoral Consortium Student Co-Chair
• Blagovesta Kostova, EPFL, Switzerland


POSTERS AND DEMOS

The posters & demos track will showcase prototypes and new research ideas
in Information Science. This track provides a forum for researchers and
practitioners to present their work, interact with conference participants, and
obtain feedback on on-going research. We invite two types of submissions:

• 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 tools/prototypes and associated materials that illustrate research
work in progress and serve as ground for discussion of research ideas.

Posters and demonstrations proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file
with no more than 6 pages in Springer LNCS/LNBIP format
(https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines)
including references and appendices. Proposals that exceed the limit of 6
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 2021. The submission site address
is http://www.rcis-conf.com/rcis2021/ where you can choose the
"RCIS2021 Posters & Demos" track.

More details on the submission and presentation format is online:

Posters & Demos Chairs
• Dominik Bork, TU Wien, Austria
• Giovanni Meroni, Politecnico di Milano, Italy


RESEARCH PROJECTS @RCIS

RCIS 2021 features a track entirely devoted to presenting future or ongoing
research projects (e.g., H2020 or ERC projects, national grants) in the
context of information science. This track features a good opportunity for
presenters to get feedback before submitting research project or to
disseminate the intermediate results of their projects, and for participants to
get an updated view of innovative ongoing research while getting in touch
with potential research partners.

The Research Projects @RCIS Track follows a two-step publication process.
Firstly, the authors should submit a 2 pages paper summarizing the
objectives of the project and relevant results. Each submission will be peer
reviewed on the relevance of the submitted paper in the context of RCIS. If
the paper is accepted, the authors will have to register to the conference in
order to present their work as a poster at the “Research Projects @ RCIS”
session at RCIS. A discussant system will be organized to ensure proper
feedback and discussions about the projects. Furthermore, the accepted 2
pages paper will be published in the conference proceedings to be published
by Springer in the LNBIP series.

Beyond the special topic for RCIS 2021, the conference welcomes Research
Projects submissions from any domain of Information Science. More
information about the special topic and the range of topics that RCIS
traditionally addresses can be found in:
http://www.rcis-conf.com/rcis2021/callPapers.php .
The submission site address is
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2021
where you can choose the "ResearchProjects@RCIS2021" track.

More information about preparing and submitting contributions related to
this track can be found here: http://www.rcis-conf.com/rcis2021/researchProjects.php .

Research Projects @RCIS Chairs
• Denisse Muñante, Télécom SudParis, Institut Polytechnique de Paris, France
• Anthony Simonofski, UNamur and KU Leuven, Belgium


TUTORIALS

Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction (know-how) on a
topic of relevance for the RCIS academic and practitioner community.
However, we discourage commercial or sales-oriented tutorials. Potential
presenters should keep in mind that there might be a varied audience,
including novice graduate students, seasoned practitioners, and specialised
researchers. Tutorial speakers should be prepared to cope with this diversity.

The conference has specific slots for tutorials. They will be organised in
sessions of 90 minutes with a free format. Tutorials run in parallel with other
conference tracks, and participation in the tutorials is included in the
attendees’ conference fee. We invite proposals for tutorials that may address
one or more of the listed topics below, although authors should not feel
limited by them. 

A 2-page summary of the tutorials that end up being accepted and delivered
will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be published by
Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing series.
Furthermore, a free registration for the conference will be offered to the main
presenter (i.e. to one speaker), unless they are the only paying author of a
paper presented at the conference.

Beyond the special topic for RCIS 2021, the conference welcomes tutorial
proposals from any domain of Information Science. More information about
the special topic and the range of topics that RCIS traditionally addresses can
be found in: http://www.rcis-conf.com/rcis2021/callPapers.php .

Tutorial proposals are limited to 5 pages in Springer LNCS/LNBIP format
and should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS/LNBIP conference
proceedings template (for LaTeX and Word):
https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines .
The submission site address is
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2021 where you can choose the
"RCIS2021_Tutorials" track.

this track can be found here: http://www.rcis-conf.com/rcis2021/tutorials.php .
