Call For Papers


29-31 May 2018, Nantes, France
Paper submission deadline: February 2nd, 2018

co-located with the 36th French conference INFORSID

RCIS has become a recognized conference on research challenges in information science. 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. Organized for the 12th time in a row, RCIS 2018 will be held from May 29-31, 2018.

* Regular paper submission deadline: February 2nd, 2018 (23:59 Central European Time)
* Author notification: March 28th, 2018
* Camera-ready deadline: April 13th, 2018
* Author registration deadline: April 13th, 2018
* RCIS 2018 Conference: May 29-31, 2018

At RCIS 2018, among other regular topics a particular attention will be given to the special topic: Enterprise of the future.
This theme is intended to explore how Information Science, in terms of methods and tools, can help enterprises and organisations face a wide range of challenges, thanks to the power of Information. Indeed, enterprises need to be able to continually innovate as fast as (or faster than) their highly fluctuating environments and markets. However, complexity of information representation and exploitation, decision-making processes at multiple levels and their important often unforeseen - effects, drastically impact enterprises agility and innovation. How does Information Science currently influence the future of enterprises and how can it influence it in a more efficient and innovative way? What are the main strategic challenges? How can Information Sciences strengthen and become an unavoidable and fundamental pillar of the Enterprise of the Future?
RCIS welcomes submissions from a diverse spectrum: the list of themes and topics includes, but is not limited to, the following themes and topics:

Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2018. 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.

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.
Accepted papers will be submitted to IEEE for publication in IEEE Xplore digital library using the IEEE 2-column format (
