RCIS has become a recognized conference on research challenges in Information Science. Organized for the 14th time in a row, RCIS 2020 will be held from September 22 - 25, 2020, in Limassol, Cyprus.
RCIS 2020 features a posters & demos track to showcase prototypes and new research ideas in Information Science. This track provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their work, interact with conference participants, and obtain feedback on on-going research. We invite two types of submissions:
• 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 tools/prototypes and associated materials that illustrate research work in progress and serve as ground for discussion of research ideas.

Topics of Interest
RCIS aims to bring together scientists, researchers, engineers and practitioners from a wide range of information science fields and to provide opportunities for knowledge sharing and dissemination. RCIS 2020 will continue paying attention to traditional topics at the conference; in addition, we solicit submissions aligned the special theme of Information Science in the Days of Artificial Intelligence. We understand AI in a broad sense, including machine learning, self-adaptation, logic-based reasoning, automation, agents and multiagent systems, natural language processing, etc.
RCIS welcomes posters and demos submissions from any domain of Information Science. The list of interested topics includes, but is not limited to:

Submission Guidelines
Posters and demonstrations proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file with no more than 6 pages in Springer LNCS/LNBIP format ( including references and appendices. Proposals that exceed the limit of 6 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 2020. Authors are invited to submit their proposal in English. The submission site address is where you can choose “ RCIS2020 Posters & Demos ”.

Poster Presentation
Authors of accepted posters will receive an opportunity to complete a short oral presentation during the posters and demos session. 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 of A0 type, that is 84 cm by 119 cm (33” by 47”), 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.
Demos Presentation
Authors of accepted demos will have a chance to present their material to conference attendees during the posters and demos session. Authors of demonstrations are expected to be available to present, describe and discuss the work behind the tool/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 separate registration for each accepted paper, poster or demo).

Important Dates
  • Posters and Demos submission deadline: February 14, 2020 (AoE) (Extended) February 21, 2020
  • Notification to authors and registration opening: March 15, 2020
  • Authors registration deadline for all paper types: March 31, 2020 extended to April 30, 2020
