Registration - Accommodation
RCIS has become a well-recognised conference on research challenges in information sciences. Organised for the fifteenth time in a row, RCIS 2021 will be held from May 20-22, 2020, in Limassol, Cyprus.
Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction (know-how) on a topic of relevance for the RCIS academic and practitioner community. However, we discourage commercial or sales-oriented tutorials. Potential presenters should keep in mind that there might be a varied audience, including novice graduate students, seasoned practitioners, and specialised researchers. Tutorial speakers should be prepared to cope with this diversity.
The conference has specific slots for tutorials. They will be organised in sessions of 90 minutes with a free format. Tutorials run in parallel with other conference tracks, and participation in the tutorials is included in the attendees’ conference fee. We invite proposals for tutorials that may address one or more of the listed topics below, although authors should not feel limited by them.
A 2-page summary of the tutorials that end up being accepted and delivered will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing series.
The special theme of RCIS 2021 is 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.
Beyond the special theme for RCIS 2021, the conference welcomes tutorial submissions from any domain of Information Science. The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
Information Systems and their Engineering
Data and Information Management
Business Process Managements
Domain-specific IS Engineering
Reflective Research and Practice
Tutorial proposals are limited to 5 pages. They must include each and every of the following elements:
In preparing your proposal, you are encouraged to include some creative techniques for 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, etc. that attendees can employ in their own working environments.
We finally encourage authors to optionally include a 1- or 2-minutes video of the speakers, or a few example slides, teasing their tutorial. This increases the chances to that your tutorial will be selected.
By submitting a tutorial proposal, authors implicitly agree that they will indeed attend the conference to deliver the tutorial.
Proposals must be submitted using the conference submission site (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2021), where you choose the track “RCIS2021_Tutorials”.
The authors of accepted tutorials will be asked to submit a 2-page summary of the tutorial using the Springer LNCS/LNBIP conference proceedings template (https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines).
A free registration for the conference will be offered to the main presenter (i.e. to one speaker), unless they are the only paying author of a paper presented at the conference.
