Call For Papers
Sixth International Conference on Research Challenges in Information Science, May 16-18 2012, Valencia, Spain
From May 16, 2012 to May 18, 2012,
RCIS 2012 is a conference of RCIS CONFERENCE SERIES
The Sixth International Conference on RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN INFORMATION SCIENCE (RCIS) aims at providing an international forum for scientists, researchers, engineers and developers from a wide range of information science areas. While presenting research findings and state-of-art solutions, you are especially invited to share experiences on new research challenges in these main topics:
* Information System Engineering
* Business Applications
* Database and Information System Integration
* Decision Information Systems
* Data Management
* Internet Computing
* Knowledge Management
* Knowledge Discovery from Data
* Management Applications
* Spatial Information Systems
* Software Testing
* Human-Computer Interaction
Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the conference main topics.
Conference Publications and Best Papers
Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2012. Authors are invited to submit papers in English. Each submitted paper will have to be associated to one of the four 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. Results must be stated clearly enough so that it is possible to validate them in later research.
Evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or validate proposed solutions with 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 present problems or challenges encountered in practice, relate success and failure stories, or report on industrial practice. The practice must be clearly described and its context must be given.
Doctoral Papers are papers submitted by doctoral students only and are related to research work in progress.
Papers should be limited to a maximum of 12 pages. Authors of papers that obtain the highest marks in the reviewing process will be invited to submit an extended version to a journal.
