15th International Conference on Information Fusion
Fusion 2012 is the 15th International Conference on Information Fusion. It will be held for the first time in the Asian continent in Singapore. The objective of the conference is to provide a forum to discuss advances and applications of fusion methodologies. The conference will feature keynote speeches, special sessions on topics of current interest, a tutorial program to assist new researchers in the field, and both regular and student paper wards. Authors are invited to submit papers to this conference describing advances and applications in Information Fusion, with submission of non-traditional topics encouraged. The presented papers shall be included in the IEEE Xplore and EI Compendex databases.
Paper Submissions. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers online. The paper should follow the Letter Size of IEEE Paper Template, and it can be obtained through the conference website http://www.fusion2012.org/public.asp ?page=submit.htm. Papers should be 6 to 8 pages in length. All papers must be approved for public release via the appropriate procedure of their employers/funding agencies prior to submittal.
