Deadline Approaching:2010 IEEE Intl. Conf. on Information Reuse and Integration

http://www.sis.pitt.edu/~iri2010/
Contact:

The 11th IEEE International Conference on Information
Reuse and Integration (IEEE IRI-2010)

Tuscany Suites & Casino, Las Vegas, USA
August 4-6, 2010
http://www.sis.pitt.edu/~iri2010/

The increasing volumes and dimensions of information have dramatic
impact on effective decision-making. To remedy this situation,
Information Reuse and Integration (IRI) seeks to maximize the reuse
of information by creating simple, rich, and reusable knowledge
representations and consequently explores strategies for integrating
this knowledge into legacy systems. IRI plays a pivotal role in the
capture, representation, maintenance, integration, validation, and
extrapolation of information; and applies both information and
knowledge for enhancing decision-making in various application
domains. This conference explores three major tracks: information
reuse, information integration, and reusable systems. Information
reuse considers optimizing representation methodologies; information
integration studies strategies for creatively applying models in
novel domains; and reusable systems focus on ontological
opportunities for deploying models and corresponding processes.

The IEEE IRI conference serves as a forum for researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry, and government to present,
discuss, and exchange ideas that address real-world problems with
real-world solutions. The conference feature contributed and
invited papers. Theoretical and applied papers are both included.
The conference program will include special sessions, open forum
workshops, and keynote speeches. A forum will be conducted with
the intent of bridging IRI and Systems of Systems and why the future
of intelligent computing - including computing applications - will
lie at the juxtaposition of these two topical areas.

The conference includes, but is not limited to, the areas listed
below:
- Large Scale Data and System Integration
- Component-Based Design and Reuse

Instructions for Authors:
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining
to the above and related topics are solicited. Full paper manuscripts
must be in English of length 4 to 6 pages (using the IEEE two-column
template). Submissions should include the title, author(s),
affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), tel/fax numbers, abstract, and
postal address(es) on the first page. Papers should be submitted at
the conference web site: http://www.sis.pitt.edu/~iri2010/. If web
submission is not possible, manuscripts should be sent as an attachment
via email to either of the Program Chairs (mailing address available
on the conference website) on or before the deadline date of
March 28, 2010. The attachment must be in .pdf (preferred) or
word.doc format. The subject of the email must be
"IEEE IRI 2010 Submission."

Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness,
significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Authors should
certify that their papers represent substantially new work and are
previously unpublished. Paper submission implies the intent of at
least one of the authors to register and present the paper,
if accepted.
