Call For Tutorials

RCIS has become a well-recognised conference on research challenges in information sciences. Organised for the twelfth time in a row, RCIS 2018 will be held from May 29-31, 2018, in Nantes, France.

Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction (know-how) on a topic of relevance, no commercial or sales-oriented. Potential presenters should keep in mind that there might be a varied audience, including novice graduate students, seasoned practitioners, and specialized researchers. Tutorial speakers should be prepared to cope with this diversity.

The conference has specific slots for tutorials. They will be organized in sessions of 90 minutes with a free format. 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 listed topics below, although authors should not feel limited by them.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
RCIS 2018 is focused on Enterprise of the future. This topic aims to study the needs of any enterprise in the future, among others: what requirements will have to face any enterprise and how to deal with them; how to model business processes used in the enterprise; how to deal with human-computer interaction to get more usable interfaces; how to deal with big-data systems; how to represent abstract enterprise systems; how to deal with systems that work in several context, environments and devices, how to get more adaptable systems for citizens, etc.

Beyond the special topic for RCIS 2018, the conference welcomes tutorial submissions from any domain of Information Science. The list of interested topics includes, but is not limited to:

INSTRUCTIONS FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS
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 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 settings.

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

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://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2018), where you choose “Tutorial paper”.
