Call for Papers (download the PDF version [Nov 4, 2021])

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.

  • Information Reuse
    • Data Science & Technologies - Heuristic Acquisition
    • Data & Knowledge Representation and Management
    • Data Visualization
    • Information Science & Theory

    August 9 - August 11, 2022


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above and related topics are solicited. Full papers must be in English of up to 6 pages (using the IEEE two-column template instructions). Six pages is typical and allows for extension of invited papers being extended for journal publication. Posters (including short research highlights and tool demos) are up to 2 pages. 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 select if their submission is for the "Full Paper" track or for the "Poster" track.

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

Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Paper & poster submission implies the intent of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper & poster in the virtual IRI'22 conference, if accepted.
