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 2022 will continue paying attention to traditional topics at the
conference; in addition, we solicit submissions aligned with the special theme as described next. The way information
is captured, interpreted, transformed and used raises
important ethical issues, such as who can access the information and to what extent, how bias can be avoided when
interpreting and using information, and how fair are decisions made based on particular information artifacts.
Moreover, trust is crucial in such context, as people become increasingly dependent on how information is handled.
The more we need information to make critical decision, the higher the need to develop ethical and trustworthy
information systems and services. Hence, this year, RCIS 2022 has chosen the theme Ethics and
Information Science to be in the center of its reflections and discussions.
RCIS welcomes submissions from the whole spectrum of the information science
field. The list of themes and topics includes, but is not limited to:
RCIS 2022 will be held in the vibrant Barcelona, organized by the
