*** Last Mile for Paper Submission! ***

15th International Conference on Research Challenges in Information Science (RCIS 2021)

May 12-14, 2021, Royal Apollonia Beach Hotel 5*, Limassol, Cyprus

Abstract submission deadline (recommended): January 25, 2021 (AoE) Paper submission deadline: February 1, 2021 (AoE)

(Proceedings to be published by Springer; Special Issue in DKE, Elsevier)


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:

Information Systems and their Engineering
* Requirements Engineering
* Software Testing
* Information Security and Risk
* Method Engineering

User-Oriented Approaches * Social Computing and Social Network Analysis * User-Centred Design * Collaborative Computing * Human Factors in Information Systems

Data and Information Management * Databases and Information * Information Search and Discovery * Conceptual Modelling and Ontologies

Business Process Management * Business Process Engineering and Reengineering * Process Mining * Enterprise Engineering

Domain-specific IS Engineering * E-Health, e-Government, e-Commerce, ... * Web-Based Applications and Services * Industry 4.0 * Web-Based Applications and Services * Smart Cities * Educational Technologies * Digital Humanities

Papers shall be formatted according to the Springer LNCS/LNBIP conference proceedings template (for LaTeX and Word): lines . Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other 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.


A selection of the best accepted papers of RCIS 2021, chosen by a dedicated committee, will be invited to submit an extended version of the RCIS paper to the Data & Knowledge Engineering (DKE) journal published by Elsevier ( The selection of the papers to invite will be based on the review scores and arguments, and the potential for extension.
