14th International Conference on
Research Challenges in Information Science (RCIS 2020)

Submission deadline: February 14, 2020 (AoE)

(Proceedings to be published by Springer)

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 May 20-22, 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.


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

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).
