TOPICS OF INTEREST
At RCIS 2017, among other regular topics, a special attention will be given to the special topic “Security and Privacy for Information Science”. Information plays a central part in almost every aspect of human life. With the advent of technologies both at hardware level (e.g. smart phones and mobile devices), and software level (e.g. cloud computing, big data), which support the collection, storage and analysis of information at any time and at any place, organisations, industry, governments but also individuals are able to access and share information like never before. However, although there is information that everyone is willing to share, there is also sensitive and confidential information that needs to remain private and secure, such as medical records, bank accounts, military plans, but also information that individuals consider private, such as photos, videos, and so on. This year’s RCIS theme aims to explore the role of information science models, tools and methods that support security and privacy.
RCIS welcomes submissions from a diverse spectrum of information science. The list of themes and topics includes, but is not limited to, the following themes and topics:
Information Systems and their Engineering
Data and Information Management
Reflective Research and Practice
Tutorials, Doctoral Consortium, Posters and Demos will complement the main conference.
Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2017. Papers should be in English and must be associated to one of the following categories:
The submission site address is https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2017
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.
Authors of best papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of one of the following journals: International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design (IGI), or Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling Quarterly.
Accepted papers will be submitted to IEEE for publication in IEEE Xplore digital library using the IEEE 2-column format (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html). In case you wish to format your paper according to this template you may use the IEEE PDF eXpress tool (http://www.pdf-express.org/) to convert your source file into an IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF file or to check if your own PDF file is IEEE Xplore-compliant. IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF check function). The conference ID for the IEEE PDF eXpress can be found on the RCIS 2017 web site. It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation or checking of a compliant PDF file and does not work as a submission; you must still submit your final paper through the submission site indicated above. For more information about how to use IEEE PDF eXpress, please see http://rcis-conf.com/rcis2017/express.php.
