Research on Intelligent Systems for information fusion has matured during the last years and many effective applications of this technology are now deployed. The problem of Information Fusion has attracted significant attention in the artificial intelligence community, trying to innovate in the techniques used for combining the data and to provide new models for estimations and predictions. The growing advances of Information Fusion as rapid advances in sensor technology that provide context‐information has led to new applications in different environments such as remote sensing, surveillance, home care, etc. With the continuing expansion of the domain of interest and the increasing complexity of the collected information, intelligent techniques for fusion processing have become a crucial component in information fusion applications. In this sense, Intelligent systems can improve high level information fusion aimed at supporting decision making, or intelligent information management This special session provides an international forum to present and discuss the latest scientific developments and their effective applications, to assess the impact of the approach, and to facilitate technology transfer. This special session provides a framework to present, to discuss, and to disseminate the latest developments and the most important outcomes related to intelligent information fusion.
Topics of interest
This special session is aimed at discussing research to develop information fusion methods using intelligent systems. These methods provide information fusion systems with advanced capabilities that allow them to have a dynamic response in view of potential changing situations in the environment. These systems are appropriate for developing dynamic and distributed systems, as they possess the capability of adapting themselves to the users and environmental characteristics. Both theoretical and practical approaches in the area are welcomed. It will promote a forum for discussion on how Intelligent Systems and information fusion techniques, methods, and tools help system designers to accomplish the mapping between available technology and application needs. Other stakeholders should be rewarded with a better understanding of the potential and challenges of the Intelligent Systems in the information fusion approach. This special session intends to bring together researchers and developers from industry and the academic world to report on the latest scientific and technical advances on the application of intelligent systems for information fusion, to discuss and debate the major issues, and to showcase the latest systems
