21st International Conference on Information Fusion - 10-13 July 2018

Studying at Cambridge


Special Sessions Information

The Fusion 2018 Organizing Committee is welcoming proposals for Special Sessions on the theory and application of information fusion. Of particular interest are proposals that address “breaking news” research or topics that may be difficult to categorize for the regular sessions.

Each special session proposal should include an overview of the topic that
identifies the relevance of the topic and introduces the papers to be presented.
Additionally, special session proposals are more likely to be accepted if they
include at least 5 invited papers.

The following information must be included in the special session proposal:

  • Title of the proposed special session
  • Names and affiliations of the organizers, including brief bio and contact information
  • Session abstract, including the significance of the topic and the rationale for the proposed session
  • List of invited papers including a tentative title, author list and a short abstract for each paper


Special session proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the
topic, relevance to the field of information fusion, number of potential papers
(assessed from the list of invited papers), as well as the qualifications of the
organizers. Once the proposal has been approved, it will be included among the
sessions available for authors to submit their papers to.

All papers submitted to a special session will be reviewed through the
same review process as the regular papers of the conference to ensure that
contributions are of high quality.

If a special session has more papers accepted than the schedule can
accommodate, some of the papers might be moved to other relevant sessions.

Proposals should be submitted as .pdf files via the online form. The deadline for submission is 1 February 2018.
