Call for Papers (download the PDF version)

This conference presents excellent, novel, and contemporary papers covering all aspects of Data – including Scientific Theory and Technology-Based Applications. New data analytic algorithms, technologies, and tools are sought for data management in the face of hardware, software, and/or bandwidth constraints; to construct models yielding important data insights; and, to create visualizations to aid in presenting and understanding the data. System development and integration need to adapt to these new algorithms, technologies, tools, and needs. This conference and its constituents support the development of science and technology to improve the human condition.

Furthermore, IRI addresses the representation, cleansing, generalization, validation, and reasoning strategies for the scientifically sound and the cost-effective advancement of all systems and systems of systems (SoS) – including all software and hardware aspects. These non-trivial tasks lead to challenging research problems – for example, how to optimally select the information/data sets for reuse and how to optimize the integration of existing information/knowledge with new, developing information/knowledge sources!

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 welcome. The conference program will include several plenary speeches from academia, industry, and government; special sessions, open forum workshops, and panels.

The conference includes, but is certainly not limited to, the areas listed below:

  • Applications – Autonomous Vehicles, Business, Education, Engineering, Healthcare and Medical Informatics, the Internet of Things, Math, Military, Multimedia, NLP, Robotics, Science, Security, Social Networking, Space, Vision, etc.
  • Brain-Computer Interface: Applications and Algorithms
  • Contemporary as well as Novel Data Mining Techniques
  • Data & Knowledge Representation and Management
  • Data Science & Technologies - Heuristic Acquisition
  • Data Science and Software Engineering – Identify Security Bugs, Code Reviews, Adaptive Systems, Testing, etc.

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above and related topics are solicited. Full/regular papers must be in English of up to 8 pages (using the IEEE two-column template instructions). Poster and short papers are up to 4 pages long. Full paper submissions can be made to the regular research track or to the industry/application track. Submissions should be double blind and should include only the title and should not include the author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), tel/fax numbers, and postal address(es) in the paper.

The online submission site is: . The authors need to mark if their submission is for the "Research Track" (up to 8 pages), for the "Industry/Application Track" (up to 8 pages), or for the "Short Papers, Posters, and Tool Demo Track" (up to 4 pages).

If web submission is not possible, please contact the program co-chair, Dr. Danda Rawat ( for alternate arrangements.

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. We may allow international telecoms for the presentation of registered international papers.
