Lowered registration fee
Due to the virtual conference, the registration fee of this year's IRI will be lower than last year. Stay tuned for more detailed information later.

IRI'20 taking place virtually
The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of the IEEE 21st International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration (IRI 2020) into an all-digital conference experience -- IRI 2020 will now be an online event. Therefore, IRI 2020 will no longer take place in Las Vegas and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same -- August 11-13, 2020. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned. For questions, contact Dr. Chengcui Zhang.

Deadline extensions
Full and short papers are due June 1, 2020, and posters and demos are due June 10, 2020.

Keynote speakers
Dr.s Elisa Bertino and Bhavani Thuraisingham will deliver keynotes at IRI 2020.

Data science has become the new frontier for self-driving cars and AI. Such intelligent applications derive from Information Reuse and Integration (IRI). IRI seeks to maximize the utility of information by creating simple, rich, and cost-effective knowledge representations and ontologies. IRI consequently explores strategies for integrating this knowledge into systems and applications. It plays a pivotal role in the capture, representation, maintenance, integration, validation, and extrapolation of information and the knowledge derived from it; and, it 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 explores the theory and practice of optimizing representations; information integration focuses on innovative strategies and algorithms for unifying diverse information in novel domains; and reusable systems focus on developing and deploying models and corresponding processes that enable Information Reuse and Integration to play a pivotal role in enhancing decision-making processes in various application domains.

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. Theoretical and applied papers are both included. The conference program will include special sessions, open forum workshops, panels, and keynote speeches.
