CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration, Aug 8-10, 2012, Las Vegas, USA
The 13th IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration When: Aug 8, 2012 - Aug 10, 2012 Where: Las Vegas, USA Submission Deadline: Mar 12, 2012 Notification Due: Apr 27, 2012 Final Version Due: May 14, 2012 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.
