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.

List of Main Topics

  • Information Systems and their Engineering; User-Oriented Approaches; Data and Information Management; Business Process Management; Domain-specific IS Engineering; Data Science; Information Infrastructures; Reflective Research and Practice


Submission Instructions

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.
