The 12th IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration (IEEE IRI-2011) Tuscany Suites & Casino, Las Vegas

Given the emerging global Information-centric IT landscape that has tremendous social and economic implications, effectively processing and integrating humongous volumes of information from diverse sources to enable effective decision making and knowledge generation have become one of the most significant challenges of current times. 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 systems and applications. 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 explores theory and practice of optimizing representation; information integration focuses on innovative strategies and algorithms for applying integration approaches in novel domains; and reusable systems focus on developing and deploying models and corresponding processes that enable Information Reuse and Integration to play a pivotal role in enhancing decision-making processes in various application domains.


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. Theoretical and applied papers are both included.
The conference program will include special sessions, open forum workshops, panels and keynote speeches.

below:

- Large Scale Data and System Integration
- Component-Based Design and Reuse

Best Paper Award:

Starting this year, IEEE IRI will be presenting a Best Paper award. The best paper will be selected by separate committee and will be the one that reports the most novel and promising research work that has a high potential impact in the real world.


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Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above and related topics are solicited.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. The online submission site is:
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=ieeeiri2011. If web submission is not possible, please contact the program co-chairs for alternate arrangements. Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Paper submission implies the intent of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Best Paper Award: Starting this year, IEEE IRI will be presenting a Best Paper award.
