Special Issue on Information Reuse and Integration

The last several decades have witnessed the creation of a tremendous amount of 
information and artifacts from large and complex software system development. 
To meet the challenge of the increasing criticality of software within systems 
and developing complex systems of systems, it is of pivotal importance to have 
disciplined ways to reuse and integrate existing information and artifacts. 
Toward such a goal, researchers in the field have studied issues in the 
capture, maintenance, integration, validation, extrapolation, and application 
of knowledge. Various methodologies and techniques have been developed for 
information reuse and integration in areas such as AI, multimedia, networking, 
software and systems engineering, and telecommunications.

This special issue aims at industrial applications or review type papers. It is 
intended to (i) provide a summary of research that advances information reuse 
and integration, and (ii) serve as a comprehensive collection of some of the 
current state-of-the-art technologies within the context of information reuse 
and integration. The solicited original papers include, but are not limited to, 
the topical areas listed below:

- AI & Decision Support Systems
- Natural Language Understanding
- Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
- Soft Computing
- Systems of Systems
- Human-Machine Information Systems
- Space and Robotic Systems
- Semantic Web and Emerging Applications
- Manufacturing Systems & Business Process Engineering
