To a degree never known before, decision makers have access to a vast amount of data. For making use of this information potential, the real-time data streams must not overwhelm the human beings involved. On the contrary, the data are to be fused to high-quality information to provide decision support on various hierarchy levels. Being a challenging exploitation technology at the common interface between sensors, command & control systems, and the human decision makers, data and information fusion has a large potential for innovative ISR systems (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) in defence and civilian applications.



Sensor Data Fusion techniques provide higher-level information from multiple sensor data by spatio-temporal data integration, the exploitation of redundant and complementary information, and the available context. This growing branch of applied informatics aims at the production of comprehensive, precise, and near real-time situation pictures, which are basic for further decisions or actions. Important applications exist in logistics, advanced driver assistance systems, medical care, public security, defence, aerospace, robotics, industrial production, precision agriculture, traffic monitoring.


Key Aspects

  • Distributed sensor fusion in complex scenarios
  • Fusion of heterogeneous sensor information
  • Exploitation of non-sensor context knowledge
  • Detection & analysis of large scale phenomena
  • Performance: measures, evaluation, prediction
  • Risk analysis / data driven sensor management
  • Case studies of multiple sensor fusion systems



The workshop addresses end users, software developers, research engineers, and scientists working in the area of sensor data fusion. They get insight into current research trends, innovative algorithms/system solutions, and new applications in a prospering evolving branch of applied informatics.

Information on the publication of SDF 2011 and SDF 2010

As many of you may have noticed, we have had problems to get the papers of the last workshops published to the IEEE Xplore database.  

Unfortunately, not all required documents could be obtained on time for the workshops in 2011 and 2010, respectively. The situation for 2012 looks like we have submitted all forms on time. Hopefully we will receive the confirmation from IEEE before the conference in September. 

Then, there is a rule by IEEE that previous conference proceedings *can* be published to the IEEE data base, if at least one year of regular proceedings were accepted by the IEEE Xplore publishing crew. This means that if we successfully publish the papers of 2012 and 2013, we are able to upload also the proceedings of 2011 and 2009 subsequently. 

We are very sorry for that the conference attendees of these past SDF Workshops have to wait so long.

The workshop addresses end users, software developers, research engineers, and scientists working in the area of sensor data fusion.
