IEEE Ninth International Conference on
May 13-15, 2015, Athens, Greece
Posters and Demos submission deadline: February 22, 2015

IEEE_Logo RCIS-2015

RCIS has become a recognized conference on research challenges in information sciences. Organized for the ninth time in a row, RCIS 2015 will be held from May 13-15, 2015.

RCIS will feature posters in a poster session and offer the opportunity for demonstrations of tools in a demonstration session. Both sessions will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to showcase their work, to interact with conference participants, and to obtain feedback on on-going research and advanced prototypes and products from knowledgeable conference attendees:
  • Posters are intended to convey a research result and are not advertisements for commercial software packages. While posters need not describe completed work, they should report on research for which at least some preliminary results are available.
  • Demonstrations should directly and actively involve the exhibition and display of software prototypes, research tools and associated materials that illustrate research work in progress and serve as ground for discussion of research ideas.
At RCIS 2015, among other regular topics a special attention will be given to the special topic “Information is all around us”. Now more than ever before in human history, information about almost everything is available somewhere. The only reason people do not have the proper pieces of information is because they either do not care to know or they are overwhelmed by the amount of data they have to filter out to get what they need. This situation poses great challenges to the field of Information Science.

RCIS welcomes posters and demos submissions from any domain of Information Science. The list of interested topics includes, but is not limited to:

Posters and demonstrations proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file with no more than 2 pages. The two pages shall contain an abstract describing the research content of the poster or what is going to be demonstrated, along with the significance of the contribution to IS technologies, title, authors, institutional affiliations and electronic contact information. Proposals that exceed the limit of 2 pages will be rejected without review.

Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2015. Authors are invited to submit papers in English.

Three members of the track program committee will review submissions, and selected proposals will be published in the RCIS’2015 Conference Proceedings published by IEEE Xplore digital library. Consequently, posters and demonstrations, paper submissions for posters and demonstrations must be formatted using the IEEE 2-column format available at ( They should be limited to a number of pages as indicated above for each type of the submission and submitted in PDF format. Please use the IEEE PDF eXpress tool (available at, detailed instructions here at to convert your source file into 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 IEEE PDF eXpress tool will be provided soon on the RCIS 2015 web site. It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you must still submit your final paper through online submission.

Proposals must be submitted using the conference submission site (, where you choose “Posters and Demos papers Section”. Then, in the submission page, after “Title, Abstract and Other Information” section select “Poster paper” or “Demo paper”.
Authors of accepted posters will receive an opportunity to complete a short oral presentation during a special poster session included in the main program. Well-crafted posters will tell the story well by themselves, but authors of posters are expected to be available to describe and discuss the work presented in the poster during the session.

The poster dimensions will be 76 cm by 100 cm (30” by 40”), with poster content mounted on rectangular poster board we will provide. The layout may consist of several individual sheets of paper or a monolithic large sheet.
Authors of accepted demonstration proposals will have a chance to present their material to conference attendees during a special demonstration session included in the main program. Authors of demonstrations are expected to be available to present, describe and discuss the work behind the prototype during the session.

Authors should bring to the session the material they need to present the demo. Any special request should be communicated sufficiently in advance and agreed with the conference local organizing committee.

By submitting a poster or demo paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of them register to the conference and present the poster or the demo (at least one registration for each accepted paper, poster or demo). Only posters and demos that have been presented by their authors during the conference will be published in IEEE Proceedings.
