CALL FOR PAPERS

The 4th International Conference on RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN INFORMATION SCIENCE

MAY 19-21, 2010, NICE, FRANCE

Papers submission deadline: November 10, 2009
http://www.farcampus.com/rcis/



SCOPE AND TOPICS:

The Fourth 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. While presenting research findings and state-of-art solutions, you are especially invited to share experiences on new research challenges in these main topics:

- Databases
- Information Systems
- Web Systems
- Business Process Modelling, Analysis and Design
- Intelligent Agents
- Knowledge Management
- Ontologies
- Knowledge Discovery from Data
- Business applications
- Management applications



Each of these topics areas is expanded on the conference web page (http://www.farcampus.com/rcis/topics.php). 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.


CONFERENCE PUBLICATIONS AND BEST PAPERS

Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publications at RCIS’2010. Authors are invited to submit papers in English using the paper format indicated below. Each submitted paper will have to be associated to one of the four following categories.

Technical solution papers present solutions which are novel or significantly improve on existing solutions. A technical solution paper must include a preliminary validation of the proposed solution. Results must be stated clearly enough so that it is possible to validate them in later research.

Evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or validate proposed solutions with scientific means, i.e. by empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, mathematical proofs, etc. The research method must be sound and appropriate.

Industrial practice and experience papers present problems or challenges encountered in practice, relate success and failure stories, or report on industrial practice. The practice must be clearly described and its context must be given.

Doctoral Papers are papers submitted by doctoral students (only) and are related to research work in progress.



PAPER SUBMISSION

By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of them will register to the conference and present the paper. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the RCIS’2010 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 paper category (Technical solution, Evaluation, Industrial or Doctoral), 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.

The papers which have been presented by their authors during the conference will be puablished in IEEE RCIS’2010 proceedings.


Paper submissions must be formatted using the IEEE 2-column format (see http://www.ieee.org). They should be limited to a maximum of 12 pages.

All paper submissions will be handled electronically (see //www.farcampus.com/rcis/author.php).



The authors of papers that obtain the highest marks in the reviewing process will be invited to submit an extended version to a journal.
