Call for Special Sessions

The Fusion 2022 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.  Organizers of accepted special sessions will be asked to chair the session and will be consulted when finalizing the list of papers in the session.

Proposal Requirements

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, this description will be made available in the proceedings, and a list of invited papers.

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

Evaluation Criteria

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 via email to
