* RCIS 2014 *
8th IEEE International Conference on
May 28-30, 2014, Marrakech, MOROCCO
Papers submission deadline: February 22, 2014


RCIS is becoming a recognized conference on research challenges in 
information sciences. Organized for the eighth time in a row, RCIS 2014 
will be held from May 28-30, 2014.


RCIS goal is to bring together scientists, researchers, engineers and 
practitioners from a wide range of information science fields and 
provide opportunities for knowledge sharing and dissemination. At 
RCIS’2014, among other regular topics a special attention will be given 
to Social Network Analysis (SNA). SNA has gained a significant impact in 
various fields of information science since social links between agents 
appear to be much effective to explain individual and global phenomena 
in multiple domains like biology, politics or business. It addresses 
both theoretical and practical issues using graph theory and data mining 
techniques. The impact of SNA has been recognized also in the 
Information Systems community. Providing support for network analysis, 
such as tracing, propagation, visualization, simulation, etc., new IT 
capabilities account also for the network existence as such, in terms of 
its creation, maintenance and visibility.

Besides the works on social network analysis and its application in the 
field of Information Science, RCIS welcomes submissions from any domain 
of Information Science. The list of interested topics includes, but is 
not limited to:

* Social Network Modeling and Simulation
* Social Network Mining
* Applications of Social Network Analysis
* Information System Engineering
* Requirements Engineering
* Database and Information
* System Integration
* Data Management
* Information Search and Discovery
* Software Testing
* Software Engineering
* Human-Computer Interaction
* Web Information Systems
* Grid Computing and Cloud Computing
* Social Computing
* User Centred Approaches
* Decision Information Systems
* Knowledge Management
* Knowledge Discovery from Data
* Business Process Analysis, Modelling and Design
* Business Applications
* Information Security Risk
* Information and Value Management


Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for 
other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at 
RCIS 2014. Authors are invited to submit papers in English. Each 
submitted paper will have to be associated to one of the 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 (12 pages).

- 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 (12 pages).

- 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 (12 pages).

- Work in progress papers present interesting preliminary results that 
may not have been fully validated yet. The work presented should be 
advanced enough to show its contribution and significance (6 pages).

- Doctoral Papers are papers submitted by doctoral students only and are 
related to research work in progress (6 pages).

- Poster papers as well as Demo papers aim to gather researchers in a 
forum to showcase their work and obtain feedback on on-going research 
from knowledgeable conference attendees (2 pages).

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 (at least one 
registration for each accepted 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 special issues of 
journals including the International Journal of Information System 
Modeling and Design (IGI).

Since papers will be submitted to IEEE for publication in IEEE Xplore 
digital library, paper submissions must be formatted using the IEEE 
2-column format . They should be limited to a number of pages as 
indicated above for each type of the submission and submitted in PDF 
format. Please use the IEEE PDF eXpress tool (http://www.pdf- 
express.org/) 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). The conference ID for IEEE PDF eXpress tool will be 
provided soon on the RCIS 2014 web site. 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.
