    (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.


    • Abstract submission deadline for regular papers: January 15, 2021 (AoE)

    • Regular paper submission deadline: January 22, 2021 (AoE)

    • Notification to authors and registration opening: March 12, 2021

    • Author registration deadline for all paper types: March 29, 2021

    • Camera-ready copy deadline for all paper types: March 29, 2021
