                About FUSION98

The First International Conference on Multisource-Multisensor Information Fusion (Fusion98) will be held between July 6 - 9, 1998 at Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, concurrently with International Conference on Image Science, Systems and Technologe (CISST98) and International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA98). All aspects of sensor data fusion techniques and systems are included in the more than 20 technical sessions of FUSION'98. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. The conference also offers keynote speeches and plenary talks by invited people. Commercial exhibits will showcase latest products by vendors.

FUSION98 technical programs cover three major areas:
1. Architectures (all system issues);
2. Algorithms (design, development, SW/HW implementations);
3. Applications (across all domains: defense, civilian, robotics, commercial, medical, business, finance, polictical economy, social & environmental science, etc.)


To receive FUSION98 updates or add to a mailing list: Contact or register with General Vice Chairman by email

To become an Author (or Tutor): you need to
(1) submit technical paper, a survey paper, or tutorial presentation (free to conference attendees) to Conference Vice Chairman for review,
(2) (if accepted) prepare final manuscript according to instructions,
(3) pay a registration fee for the conference
(4) present it at the conference between July 6 - 9, 1998, in Las Vegas, USA.
Contact General Vice Chairman by email

To become a Committee Member: you need to

International Society of Information Fusion ?

We plan to initiate The International Society of Information Fusion with your support. If you are interested in becoming a member of such a society or you would just like to be kept informed on information fusion related activites, please fill out Information Fusion Interest Group - Registration Form or Contact the Publicity Chairman by email. Your name will be added to the information fusion database/mailing list.

Suggestions an support are sought on the possbility of a possible new international journal on data and information fusion.
