Call for Workshop Proposals

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with 21st IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration (IEEE IRI 2020), August 11-13, 2020, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. In the current information-centric IT landscape, we live in a data-driven era where effectively processing and integrating humongous volumes of information from diverse sources in order to enable effective decision making and knowledge generation has become one of the most significant challenges of current times. The field of 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.

Each workshop will provide a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of information reuse and integration. A workshop must be a full or half-day in length. All workshop papers will be included in the conference proceedings and on IEEE Xplore.
