RCIS 2012


The 6th International Conference on RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN INFORMATION 

May 16-18, 2012, Valencia, Spain

*Papers submission deadline*: December 7, 2011


The Sixth International Conference on RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN INFORMATION 
SCIENCE (RCIS 2012) 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 in these main topics:

- Information System Engineering
- Business applications
- Database and Information System Integration
- Decision Information Systems
- Data Management
- Internet computing
- Knowledge Management
- Knowledge Discovery from Data
- Management applications
- Spatial Information Systems
- Software Testing
- Human-Computer Interaction

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.

Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for 
other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at 
RCIS 2012. Authors are invited to submit papers in English. Each 
submitted paper will have to be associated to one of the four following 

*Technical solution papers* present solutions that are novel or 
significantly improve 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.

The submission site address is 

By submitting a paper, authors implicitly agree that at least one of 
them will register to the conference and present the paper. Only papers 
that have been presented by their authors during the conference will be 
published in IEEE Proceedings.

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

Since Proceedings will be published with the IEEE Conference 
Publications Program through IEEE Xplore digital library, paper 
submissions must be formatted using the IEEE 2-column format (see 
Conference Templates,

They should be limited to a maximum of 12 pages and be submitted in PDF 
format. Please use the IEEE PDF eXpress tool 
(http://www.pdf-express.org/ Conference ID: RCIS12x) to convert your 
source file into IEEE Xplore compliant PDF File or to check if your own 
PDF file is IEEE Xplore compliant. IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to 
IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible 
PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made 
themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is 
only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you must still submit your 
final paper through online submission.
