The 17th International Conference on Information Fusion will take place in Salamanca, Spain, on July 7-10th 2014. Salamanca is a unique Spanish city in terms of its history, architecture, culture, and at the same time a well-known Spanish city for international academic events.
The conference will provide a forum to discuss advances and applications of information fusion methodologies. 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 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.
Fusion systems design and evaluation
Distributed fusion, sensor and fusion resource management, process management, active and passive fusion, hard soft data fusion, integrated systems, system design, hardware and software issues, network centric operations, high/low multi-level fusion, performance evaluation of fusion systems, benchmarks & testbeds, fusion performance modeling and evaluation.
Machine learning, pattern analysis, data mining, big data, automated reasoners, inference systems; networks & graph analysis, knowledge systems, intelligent agents and multi-agent systems, SoA architectures; formal methods, semiotics;fuzzy logic, neural networks, evolutionary computation, artificial intelligence; other emerging methodologies.
Persistent surveillance, defense and intelligence, security, robotics, autonomous vehicles, intelligent transportation systems, aerospace, aeronautics; automotive, ambient intelligence sensor networks, manufacturing, fault detection, anomaly detection, remote sensing, economics and financial, environmental monitoring, medical and biology technologies,emerging applications.
The conference will take place in the Hospedería Fonseca in Salamanca (Spain), conveniently located in Salamanca. The location provides easy access to all major transportation arteries and is within walking distance to most of Salamanca’s traditional points of interest.
Detailed instructions for paper submissions, through EasyChair system, appear at www.fusion2014.org. Special sessions proposals for special sessions are welcome; organizers will collaborate in the promotion and review management in their proposed session.
The presented papers shall be published by IEEE and will be included in the IEEE Xplore and EI Compendex databases.
There are 3 travels grants (800$) for students in honor of Tammy L. Blair. Besides, BISITE/GIAA research group (http://bisite.usal.es) of the University of Salamanca offers 50 accommodation grants to PhD students and young researchers, covering the accommodation during conference in a student residence or a hotel. Application rules are appear at conference website.
