The First International Conference on RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN INFORMATION SCIENCE (RCIS) aims at providing an international forum for scientists, researchers, engineers and developers from a wide range of information science areas to exchange ideas and approaches in this evolving field. While presenting research findings and state-of-art solutions, you are especially invited to share experiences on new research challenges. Simultaneous tracks will be held, covering different aspects of Information Science, including these main topics:

Information Systems
WEB Systems
Business Process Modelling, Analysis and Design
Intelligent Agents
Knowledge Management
Knowledge Discovery from Data

Each of these topics areas is expanded on the conference web page ( but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the conference main topics.


High quality papers in all information science areas are solicited. Original papers exploring research challenges will receive especially careful interest from reviewers. Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publications at RCIS’07. Authors are invited to submit original research contributions or experience reports in English using the paper format indicated below. Papers submitted by doctoral students will be considered according to specific criteria.

By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of them will register to the conference and present the paper. Each paper should clearly indicate the issues, domains or environments to which it is related.

Submitted papers will be reviewed by the RCIS’07 Program Committee based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. A "blind" paper evaluation method will be used. Therefore authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the full paper, without any reference to the authors. The manuscript must contain, in its first page, the paper title, the author category (doctoral or not), an abstract and a list of keywords but no names or contact details are to be included in any part of the file. Notification of paper acceptance/rejection will be sent by email.

All the accepted papers will be published in the RCIS’07 proceedings.
