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.
