The International Conference on Information Fusion has long been recognised as a premier forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas in the field of information fusion and its impacts on our society. Authors (researchers, students and practitioners) are invited to submit papers describing advances in the theory and applications of information fusion. The 25th International Conference on Information Fusion (FUSION 2022) will be held on Linköping, Sweden.  Linköping is the information fusion capitol of Sweden, including SAAB with its 85 years of air fighter production, the Swedish Defence Research Agency FOI, and many companies with fusion as their core competence. Linköping features an average of 24 degrees Celsius and bright summer nights during the conference week, and prices for hotel and food are quite affordable. Fusion 2022 is planned to be a fully onsite conference, if nothing quite unexpected happens. Our ambition is that this 25th version will be the most normal Fusion conference ever!
