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
• 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Instructions for Authors: Papers reporting original and unpublished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.
