NOTE: Scopus indexing in progress 

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.


Topics of Interest

Theory and representation: probability theory, Bayesian inference, argumentation, Dempster-Shafer theory, possibility and fuzzy set theory, rough sets, logic fusion, preference aggregation, decision theory, random sets, finite point processes and others.

Algorithms: cognitive methods, signal processing and localisation, recognition, classification, identification, nonlinear filtering, data association, tracking, prediction, situation/impact assessment, alignment and registration, pattern/behavioural analysis, image fusion, fusion architectures, resource management, machine learning and artificial intelligence, topic modelling, natural language processing, contextual adaptation, anomaly/change detection.

Applications: soft-hard fusion, autonomous systems, defence/security, robotics, intelligent transportation, mining/manufacturing, wireless sensor networks, economics, finance, fintech, environmental monitoring, medical care/e-health, bioinformatics, radio astronomy, critical infrastructure protection, condition monitoring, precision agriculture, video streaming and other emerging applications.

Methods/tools: sequential inference, data mining, graph analysis, ontologies/semantics, modelling/realisation/evaluation, target/sensor modelling, benchmarks/testbeds, computational methods, cloud/edge computing/fusion, fusion performance.


Important deadlines

  • Proposals for special sessions, tutorials, panels: 25 February 2020

    (final extension to 5 April, 23:59 UTC)
  • Notification of acceptance (special sessions and panels): 16 March 2020
  • Notification of acceptance (tutorials, special sessions and panels): 1 April 2020 Extended to 7 April 2020
  • Notification of acceptance (full papers): 1 May 2020 Extended to 7 May 2020
  • Camera ready paper submission: 1 June 2020 


Author guidelines

  • A1 – Authors must submit their own original work only.
  • A2 – Authors must cite other literature relevant to their work.
  • A3 – Authors must follow typesetting guidelines (templates) of the Fusion conference (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html).
  • A4 – Authors must agree with and sign the ISIF copyright agreement, once the paper is accepted for presentation.
  • A5 – Authors must employ professional language and they must avoid excessive verbosity that would dilute the technical clarity of the work.


Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. A submission implies willingness by the authors to register and present your work if your paper is accepted for presentation at the conference.

To ensure inclusion in the Fusion 2020 Conference Proceedings, at least one of the authors will be required to register, attend the conference and present the paper. It is planned that presented at the conference will be part of the conference proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore® digital library and indexed by EI/Compendex. 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 and related topics. Submitted papers must be formatted according to the IEEE Xplore template (A4 or Letter Size Paper). Templates and other supporting files for various types of computers and operational systems can be downloaded using the following link:
  • 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 fusion2020.org website)


FUSION2020 proceedings will be published by the IEEE in IEEEXplore.
