The 2009 IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and
Integration (IEEE IRI-2009)

Sponsored by: The IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society
August 10-12, 2009

Tuscany Hotel, Las Vegas, USA


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. There will be new IRI Society Memberships and Awards. The 
conference includes, but is not limited to, the areas listed below:

- Large Scale Data and System Integration

- Component-Based Design and Reuse

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Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the 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://iri2009.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/. 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 March 29, 2009. The attachment must be in .pdf (preferred) or 
word.doc format. The subject of the email must be IEEE IRI 2009 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
