CALL FOR PAPERS: "IEEE Intl. Conf. on Information Reuse and Integration", 3-5 Aug 2011, USA

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

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.

- Large Scale Data and System Integration
