16th International Conference on Research Challenges in Information Science (RCIS 2022)
May 17 - May 20
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 2022 will continue paying attention to traditional topics at the conference; in addition, we solicit submissions aligned with the special theme as described next. The way information is captured, interpreted, transformed and used raises important ethical issues, such as who can access the information and to what extent, how bias can be avoided when interpreting and using information, and how fair are decisions made based on particular information artifacts. Moreover, trust is crucial in such context, as people become increasingly dependent on how information is handled. The more we need information to make critical decision, the higher the need to develop ethical and trustworthy information systems and services. Hence, this year, RCIS 2022 has chosen the theme Ethics and Trustworthiness in Information Science to be in the center of its reflections and discussions.
