The International Conference on Information Fusion is a premier forum for interchange of the latest research in information fusion and discussion of its impacts on our society. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners from industry, government, and academia to report on the latest scientific and technical advances. Authors are invited to submit papers describing advances and applications in information fusion.
The 18th Fusion conference will be held in Washington, DC, USA at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. Washington is home to many national monuments and museums, which are primarily situated on or around the National Mall within walking distance of the conference venue. The greater DC area provides a variety of tourist attractions that can satisfy even the most demanding visitor. By hosting 176 foreign embassies as well as headquarters of many international organizations, DC offers a culturally rich environment ripe for exploration. The conference will be held the week following the US Independence Day, July 4th. This creates an opportunity for those coming to the conference to arrive a bit earlier and enjoy the best the city can offer at this special time.
