RCIS aims to bring together scientists, researchers, engineers and practitioners from information science in a wide sense. First arranged in 2007, the RCIS conference series aims to provide opportunities for knowledge sharing and dissemination in areas such as information systems and their engineering, user-oriented approaches, data and information management, enterprise management and engineering, domain-specific IS engineering, data science, information infrastructures, and reflective research and practice.


This year's theme, "Information Science and the Connected World" reflects the role of information technologies and infrastructures in a world where everyone - and increasingly everything - is permanently connected through technology. In this hyper-connected world, information systems can both be a blessing - as witnessed by the rapid global research collaboration to counteract the Covid crisis - and a curse - as witnessed by the wide and rapid spread of disinformation, for example about Covid and its countermeasures. RCIS 2023 therefore specifically invites submissions that explore and extend the role that information technologies play - whether by design or accident - as part of hyper-connected global information infrastructures.


RCIS 2023 welcomes submissions from the whole spectrum of the information science field. The list of themes and topics includes, but is not limited to:

The proceedings of RCIS 2023 will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing series. 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 for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2023. 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.

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

In addition to the main research track, RCIS 2023 invite submissions to the following tracks: Forum, Doctoral Consortium, Research Projects, Journal First,Tutorials, and Workshops.

The submission site for all types of submissions is (

By submitting a paper, the authors agree that at least one of them will register to the conference and present the paper (one paper=one registration). The appearance of a paper in the Springer proceedings is dependent on the registration of one author within the early registration deadline on April 6th.

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


NEW abstract submission deadline (mandatory): February 5, 2023
NEW regular paper submission deadline: February 10, 2023
Notification to authors: March 20, 2023
Camera-ready copy deadline for all paper types: March 31, 2023
Author registration deadline: April 6, 2023
Conference: May 23-26, 2023
