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.

Tutorial proposals are limited to 5 pages in Springer LNCS/LNBIP format
(https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines ).
Proposals must be submitted using the conference submission site
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2020 ), where you choose
"RCIS2020 Tutorials".

Instructions on the structure of a tutorial proposal can be found online:

The RCIS 2020 Doctoral Consortium is an opportunity for doctoral students
to present, discuss and develop their research project in an interdisciplinary
workshop, under the guidance of a panel of senior researchers. The Doctoral
Consortium offers nice opportunities for PhD students. Firstly, the feedback
received during the Doctoral Consortium will really benefit students who have
defined their topic, research plan and have obtained early results, but who
still have room for improving their longer-term plan. Secondly, students at all
stages of their doctoral project can meet the welcoming RCIS community and
widen their network of contacts.

The Doctoral Consortium has the following objectives:
* Provide a platform for students to present their work and to meet other
peers and be familiar with different research topics and methods. 
* Provide feedback on students' current research and guidance on future
research directions.
* Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars and a
spirit of collaborative research and networking.
* Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other

Interested PhD students are invited to submit papers, in agreement with
their supervisors, addressing the instructions that are provided on the
online call: http://www.rcis-conf.com/rcis2020/callDoctoral.php .

Papers shall be formatted according to the Springer LNCS/LNBIP conference
proceedings template (for LaTeX and Word):
https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines .
Submissions must be written in English, and must be authored by the student
only. The maximum length of the paper should be eight (8) pages, including
references, appendices, etc. The submission site address is
where you can choose "RCIS2020 Doctoral Consortium".

* Raian Ali, Bournemouth University, United Kingdom
* Sergio Espana, Utrecht University, Netherlands


The posters & demos track will 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.

Posters and demonstrations proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file
with no more than 6 pages in Springer LNCS/LNBIP format
(https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines )
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. The submission site address
is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcis2020
where you can choose "RCIS2020 Posters & Demos".
