http://www.sis.pitt.edu/~iri07/

*** Due to many requests, the following deadline has been extended
*** Paper submission deadline: April 7, 2007 (FIRM)

The 2007 IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and
Integration (IEEE IRI-2007)

Sponsored by: The IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society

-----------------------------------------------------------------


With the rapidly increasing volumes of information in digital
form, we are constantly faced with newer challenges with
regards to efficiently using it and extracting useful knowledge
from it. Information reuse and integration (IRI) seeks to
maximally exploit such available information to create new
knowledge and to reuse it for addressing newer challenges.
It plays a pivotal role in the capture, maintenance, integration,
validation, extrapolation, and application of knowledge to
augment decision capabilities in various application domains.
The IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and
Integration 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 IEEE IRI will feature contributed as well as invited papers.
Theoretical and applied papers are both included in this call.
The conference program will include special sessions, open forum
workshops and keynote speeches. Several funding agency program
directors - including NSF, ONR, et al. - will present an open
panel discussion entitled Funding Opportunities in Information
Reuse and Systems Engineering.

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

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Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining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/~iri07. 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
April 7, 2007.

The attachment must be in .pdf (preferred) or word.doc format. The
subject of the email must be IEEE IRI 2007 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. Authors
of selected papers that are also presented at the conference will
be invited to submit expanded versions of their papers for review
for publication in an approved special issue of the IEEE SMC
Transactions, part C, on IRI to be published in 2008.
