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. RCIS has become a recognised conference on research challenges in information sciences. Organised for the 14th time in a row, RCIS 2020 will be held from May 20-22, 2020, in Limassol, Cyprus.
Topics of Interest
At RCIS 2020, among other regular topics, special attention will be given to the special topic: “Towards a Design Science for Information Systems”. With the advent of ubiquitous computing, today’s information systems are designed, developed, used, and tested on a very wide spectrum of devices and computing platforms, by a diverse population of stakeholders (e.g., analysts, designers, developers, end users) for an ever wider range of tasks carried out in multiple physical and psychological environments, thus inducing many different contexts of use. Facing this variety of contexts of use, design science is expected to help people producing information systems that are better tailored to their needs when interacting with these systems. This year’s RCIS theme aims to explore the role played by design science in every stage of the development life cycle of information systems, which includes meta-models, models, languages, notations, methods, and software tools for supporting these stages. RCIS welcomes submissions from a diverse spectrum of information science. The list of themes and topics includes, but is not limited to, the following areas, themes and topics:

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. Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2020. 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.
