Call for Posters and Demos
RCIS has become a recognized conference on research challenges in information sciences. Organized for the 10th time in a row, RCIS 2016 will be held from June 1-3, 2016.

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 2016, among other regular topics a special attention will be given to the special topic “Information science for a socially and environmentally responsible world”. The theme is intended to explore how information science methods and tools can empower people and organizations and pave the way towards making the world a better place. Environmental and equality movements; transparency and participative democracy; social economy and ethical banking; free press and the wisdom of the crowd… All these areas have been crosscutting personal ideologies to become effective leverages of positive change worldwide. What role is information science currently playing in supporting and enabling such initiatives? How should information science evolve to rise to the future challenges?

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.

Proposals that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2016. Authors are invited to submit their proposal in English.

The submission site address is where you can choose “Posters & Demos papers Section”.

Three members of the program committee will review submissions, and selected proposals will be published in the RCIS’2016 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 ( In case you wish to format your paper according to this template you may use the IEEE PDF eXpress tool ( to convert your source file into an 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 the IEEE PDF eXpress can be found on the RCIS 2016 web site. It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation or checking of a compliant PDF file and does not work as a submission; you must still submit your final paper through the submission site indicated above. For more information about how to use IEEE PDF eXpress, please see

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.
