                               Call for Papers
The 2003 IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration
                             October 27-29, 2003
                                Las Vegas, USA


This year's conference theme pertains to the design and realization of
intelligent interfaces for computational systems. This theme was selected
to reflect the importance of human factors in systems design and use. For
example, natural language can serve as an effective database interface for
applications where rapid feedback is important. The IEEE International
Conference on Information Reuse and Integration will feature contributed
as well as invited papers. Theory, speculative, and application papers are
all included in this call. The focus of the conference includes, but is not
limited to, the areas listed below:

Agent-Based Systems                     Model-Based Systems
Case-Based Reasoning                    Multimedia Systems
Component-Based Design                  Natural Language Understanding
Data Integration and Fusion             Quantum Computing
Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery     Rule-Based Systems
Decision Support Systems                Soft Computing
Human-Computer Interface                Software Process
Information Assurance                   Software Reuse
Intellectual Property                   Software Testing
Internet Computing                      Speech Recognition
Knowledge Acquisition and Management


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining
to the above and related topics are solicited. Full paper manuscripts
must be in English and should not exceed 8 pages (using the IEEE
two-column template). Submissions should include the title, author(s),
affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), tel/fax numbers, abstract, and postal
address(es) on the first page. Papers should be submitted at the conference
web site: If web submission is not possible,
manuscripts should be sent as an attachment via email to the Program Chair
listed below on or before the deadline date of June 1, 2003.

The attachment must be in .pdf (preferred) or word.doc format. The subject
of the email must be "IEEE IRI 2003 Submission." Papers will be selected
based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and
clarity of presentation. Authors should certify that their papers represent
substantially new work and are previously unpublished. Organizers of
prospective special sessions, panels, and tutorials are invited to submit
proposals and should contact the Program Chair directly as soon as possible,
but no later than April 15, 2003. Submission implies the intent of at least
one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors
of selected papers, presented at the conference, will be invited to submit
an expanded version of their paper for review for possible inclusion in the
appropriate IEEE SMC Transactions.


Special Sessions, Panels, and Tutorials Deadline:  April 15, 2003
