Special Call for Papers

Naval Applications of Data and Information Fusion

A technical session of

The 1998 International Conference on
Multisource-Multisensor Information Fusion
(FUSION'98)
July 6-9, 1998
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

The first International Conference on Sensor Information Fusion (FUSION'98)
will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 6 - 9, 1998, concurrently
with the 1998 International Conference on Imaging Science, Systems
and Technology (CISST'98). All aspects of sensor data fusion techniques
and systems are included in FUSION'98. The official FUSION'98 web site is
http://www.zaptron.com/fusion98/

A technical session on Naval Applications of Data and Information Fusion is
planned for this event. The deadline for submission of papers to this
session has been extended to March 15.

SUGGESTED BUT NOT EXCLUSIVE LIST OF TOPICS:
- applications of data fusion in anti-submarine warfare
- information fusion and data mining in naval intelligence and surveillance
- decision support technology for naval tactical applications
- multi-sensor data fusion for ship self-defence and countermeasure control
- tactical control of naval C2 networks
- on-board integration of C2 information

Papers should focus on the interplay between methodology and effectiveness in
these or other naval applications, thus scientifically describe, analyze, and
discuss HOW and WHY a proposed set of fusion methods could or should be applied
to the problem studied.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:
Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies of their
draft paper (4 to 5 pages) to the session chairman:

Professor Per Svensson

paper, name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address,
telephone number, and Fax number for each author. The first
page should also identify the author who will be presenting
the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords.

EVALUATION PROCESS:
Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two
researchers in the topical area. The Camera-Ready papers
will be reviewed by one person.
