Call for Papers and Proposals

The field of information fusion has been undergoing major changes due to the ubiquity of heterogeneous sensors, rapid development in computing technology, intense focus on data-driven techniques and emerging application domains such as intelligent transportation. We actively solicit papers that expand the reach of information fusion to new theoretical frameworks, processing techniques, application domains and computing paradigms. We encourage papers, tutorials, and special sessions that explore the interplay between traditional model-based techniques and emerging data-driven artificial intelligence, machine learning, and autonomous methodologies at both high-level and low-level data and information fusion.
