CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE IRI 2012 - Conference on Information Reuse and Integration, 8-10 Aug 2012, Las Vegas, USA

http://www.sis.pitt.edu/~iri2012/

Given the emerging global Information-centric IT landscape that has tremendous social and economic 
implications, effectively processing and integrating very large 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. The conference includes, but is not limited to,
the areas listed below:

 Large Scale Data and System Integration  Component-Based Design and Reuse
 Unifying Data Models (UML, XML, etc.) and Ontologies 
 Database Integration  Structured/Semi-structured Data 
 Middleware & Web Services  Reuse in Software Engineering 
 Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery 
 Sensory and Information Fusion 
 Reuse in Modeling & Simulation 
 Automation, Integration and Reuse Across Applications 
 Information Security & Privacy 
 Survivable Systems & Infrastructures 
 AI & Decision Support Systems; Heuristic Optimization and Search 
 Knowledge Acquisition and Management 
 Fuzzy and Neural Systems 
 Soft/Evolutionary Computing 
 Case-Based Reasoning 
 Natural Language Understanding 
 Knowledge Management and E-Government 
 Command & Control Systems (C4ISR) 
 Human-Machine Information Systems 
 Biomedical & Healthcare Systems 
 Homeland Security & Critical Infrastructure Protection 
 Manufacturing Systems & Business Process Engineering 
 Space and Robotic Systems 
 Multimedia Systems 
 Service-Oriented Architectures 
 Autonomous Agents in Web-based Systems 
 Information Integration in Grid, Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing Environment 
 Systems of Systems 
 Semantic Web and Emerging Applications 
 Information Reuse, Integration and Sharing in Collaborative Environments

Instructions for Authors: Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to 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 up to 8 
pages (using the IEEE two-column template). The online submission site is:
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=iri2012. 
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: 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.
