CFP in Word




The increasing volumes and dimensions of information have dramatic impact on effective decision-making. To remedy this situation, 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 legacy systems. 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 reuse considers optimizing representation methodologies; information integration studies strategies for creatively applying models in novel domains; and reusable systems focus on ontological opportunities for deploying models and corresponding processes.

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. The conference feature contributed and invited papers. Theoretical and applied papers are both included. The conference program will include special sessions, open forum workshops, and keynote speeches. A forum will be conducted with the intent of bridging IRI and Systems of Systems and why the future of intelligent computing - including computing applications - will lie at the juxtaposition of these two topical areas. The conference includes, but is not limited to, the areas listed below:

.  Large Scale Data and System Integration
