Thank you for a great Fusion Conference!!

15 July 2018

We would like to thank everyone involved in the conference this year, and wish next year's conference in Ottawa all success! The conference is made by the quality of our technical programme, and this was excellent as in past years... We had record registrations (~500 people) and a very vibrant set of technical talks and presentations, expanding our notions of Data Fusion in exciting directions. Well done to all our paper award winners and runners up - this was a really tough competition and many papers were award-worthy. In future we would like to see recognition of more of our very best submissions through an honours list or similar. Thank you also to the plenary speakers - your efforts were particularly commented upon by many. Fusion's horizons were expanded with talks on Machine Learning (Gaussian Processes), Image fusion, and by a timely survey of the particle filtering method, from its statistical origins to the present day, presented in the Bootstrap filter's 25th anniversary year - thank you so much Carl, Jean-Yves, Adrian, David and Neil! The local organising team of Jo, Ella, Lisa et al. at IfM deserve special commendation. Their forebearance, patience and general good humour, not to mentiom highly professional organisation skills, were a true enabler of the conference. Thank you!! Finally, thanks to all of the conference committee, including TPC, special session chairs, tutorial chair and co-chairs for a real collaborative effort that made the Chairs' role a pleasure rather than a burden. All best wishes to you all and Fusion's future ventures. The Conference Chairs - Simon, Mila and Simon
