FUSION 2014 : 17th International Conference on Information Fusion
Call For Papers
Information fusion is the synergistic integration of information from different sources about the behavior of a particular system, to support decisions and actions relating to the system. Information fusion includes theory, techniques and tools for exploiting the synergy in the information acquired from multiple sources, for example sensors observing system behavior, databases storing knowledge about previous behavior, simulations predicting future behavior and information gathered by humans.
The 17th International Conference on Information Fusion (Fusion 2014) will be held in Salamanca, Spain. This event will provide a forum to discuss the latest research in Information Fusion its impacts for industry and institutions. It intends to bring together researchers and developers from industry and the academic world to report on the latest scientific and technical advances on this frame. to discuss and debate the major issues, and to showcase the latest systems using these technologies.
Potential authors are invited to submit papers describing novel ideas, advances and results in Information Fusion, both in theory and applications. Submissions on fresh, interdisciplinary topics are encouraged, including but not limited to the he following list:
Theory and Representation
Probability theory, Bayesian inference, random finite sets, fuzzy logic, Dempster- Shafer, evidential reasoning, belief functions, imprecise information, aggregation operators; Markov networks, description logics, ontologies.
Algorithms for data and information fusion
Detection, localization, signal processing, sensor registration, target recognition and classification, nonlinear filtering, target tracking, data association, particle filters; situation assessment, pattern and behavioral analysis, rule-based fusion, predictive and Impact assessment, source-specific data fusion (image fusion, video tracking, sensor networks, radar data processing, passive sensors, soft sources, etc.), knowledge fusion, context-aided fusion.
