Call for Book Chapters
Title : Information Reuse and Integration In Academia And Industry
By Springer Verlag
Editors: Tansel Özyer, Keivan Kianmehr, Mehmet Tan, Jia Zeng

Over the past decades, huge volumes of data have been produced and
stored, large number of software systems
have been developed and successfully utilized, various products have
been manufactured. Not all these
developments could have been achieved without the investment of money,
time, effort, and other
resources. Over time, new data sources evolve and data integration
continue to be an essential and vital
requirement. Further, systems and products should be revised to adapt
new technologies and to satisfy
new needs. Instead of building from scratch, researchers in the
academia and industry have realized the
benefits of and concentrated on building new software systems by
reusing some of the components that
already exist and have been well tested. This trend avoids reinventing
the wheel, however, comes at the
cost of finding out the best set of existing components to be utilized
and how they should be integrated
together and with the new non-existing components which are to !
be developed from scratch. These are nontrivial tasks and have led to
challenging research problems in the
academia and industry. All these issues will be addressed in this
book, which is intended to be a unique
resource for researchers, developers and practitioners. The book will
cover the latest developments
and discoveries related to information reuse and integration in the
academia and in the industry.

The scope of the book will be information reuse and integration in
academia and industry including both
software and manufacturing industries. The aim of the book is to
maximize the reuse of information, tools
and services by creating simple, rich, and reusable knowledge
representations, to explore strategies
for integrating this knowledge into legacy systems. A homogeneous set
of papers will be selected by
considering the following major topics.
Topics of the main areas to be considered:
Large-scale data and system integration
Component-based design and reuse
Unifying data models (uml, xml, etc.) and ontologies
Database integration
Structured/semi-structured data
Middleware & web services
Reuse in software engineering
Data mining and knowledge discovery
