The IEEE Eighth International Conference on RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN INFORMATION SCIENCE (RCIS 2014) provides an international forum for scientists, researchers, engineers and developers from a wide range of information science areas to exchange ideas and approaches in this evolving field. At RCIS’2014, among other regular topics a special attention will be given to Social Network Analysis (SNA). SNA has gained a significant impact in various fields of information science since social links between agents appear to be much effective to explain individual and global phenomena in multiple domains like biology, politics or business. RCIS’2014 will then focus on topics like:

  • Social Network Modeling and Simulation
  • Social Network Mining
  • Applications of Social Network Analysis
  • Information System Engineering
  • Requirements Engineering
  • Database and Information
  • System Integration
  • Data Management
  • Information Search and Discovery
  • Software Testing
  • Software engineering
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Web Information Systems
  • Grid Computing and Cloud Computing
  • Social Computing
  • User Centred Approaches
  • Decision Information Systems
  • Knowledge Management
  • Knowledge Discovery from Data
  • Business Process Analysis, Modelling and Design
  • Business Applications
  • Information Security Risk
  • Information and Value Management

Tutorials are 90 minutes free format sessions, where the presenter(s) share(s) a specific and top of the art practical know-how to conference attendees that are willing to participate. Tutorials run in parallel with other conference tracks, and participation is included in the attendees’ conference fee. We invite proposals for tutorials that may address one or more of the above listed topics, although authors should not feel limited by them.
Tutorial proposals are limited to 5 pages. They must include:

  1. A title;
  2. A 150 words abstract;
  3. Value of the tutorial for the attendees;
  4. Learning objectives aligned with the value statement;
  5. Description of how the activities in the tutorial support the learning objectives and how the proposer will pass his/her messages onto the attendees;
  6. Expected background of the attendees;
  7. A concise description of material(s) that will be provided to attendees;
  8. Timetable that clearly indicates how the interaction with the audience will develop over time;
  9. A short bio of the presenter(s);
  10. A history of the tutorial: has this tutorial (or any derived version of it) already been given? If so, detail where and when, and how it has been received. Proven track record has to be balanced with the innovative aspect of the tutorial.

In preparing your proposal, you are encouraged to include some creative techniques to teaching and learning. Any teaching approach that ensures active interaction would be greatly appreciated by the RCIS audience. We encourage you to craft a tutorial that can deliver high quality content in an enjoyable way.

Please also consider including printed or online take away material for attendees. For example, templates, checklists, frameworks… that attendees can employ in their own settings.

We finally encourage authors to optionally include a 1 or 2 minutes video of the speakers teasing their tutorial.

Tutorial speakers will receive a fixed honorarium of 350 Euros per tutorial (i.e., multiple speakers must share the honorarium). Additionally, free registration for the conference will be offered to the main presenter (one speaker, unless he is the only paying author of a paper presented at the conference).
