FUSION 2020 : 2020 23rd International Conference on Information Fusion
Call For Papers
The International Conference on Information Fusion has long been recognised as a premier forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas in the field of information fusion and its impacts on our society. Authors (researchers, students and practitioners) are invited to submit papers describing advances in the theory and applications of information fusion.
The 23rd International Conference on Information Fusion (FUSION 2020) will be held on African soil for the first time. The conference will take place at the scenic Sun City Convention Centre, nestled against the foothills of the Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa. The park hosts the big 5 (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, buffalo) and is situated in the remnants of an extinct volcanic crater. This conference will offer a unique opportunity to the Fusion community to expand its horizons, seek out new collaborative efforts, and apply information fusion to problems faced by the African continent and the global community alike.
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following submission categories are welcome:
Full papers (between 5 and 8 pages) in one or more of the following topics, typically involving some aspect of information, data or sensor fusion.
Tutorials (See dedicated Call for Tutorials on the www.fusion2020.org website)
Specials sessions, panels (See dedicated Call for Special Sessions and panels on the www.fusion2020.org website)
