This ASI "Data Fusion
for Situation Monitoring, Incident Detection, Alert and Response Management"
will continue the exploration of the relatively young discipline called
Data or Information Fusion, subsequent to the Multisensor Data Fusion
ASI held in Pitlochry, Scotland, UK, 25 Jun 2000 - 7 Jul 2000.
The first ASI held in Pitlochry was classified to be within the Physical
and Engineering Science and Technology (PST) Scientific areas, and concentrated
mainly on exploitation of Mathematics, Engineering, Computer Science,
Statistics and other sciences within the methods, techniques and applications
of Data Fusion.
The current ASI will mainly focus on applying Data/Information Fusion
for Security-Related Civil Science and Technology (SST) applications.
To this end, two types of lectures will be presented
1. lectures on the general data fusion techniques and methods, with
emphasis on security related issues, whenever possible. The topics covered
can include, but are not limited to:
- Sensor or Data Fusion, or
- Information Fusion
- Object Recognition
2. lectures on specific security related subjects, which include, but
are not limited to:
- Situation Monitoring
- Incident Detection
- Alert and
- Response Management -with
the preference being papers of the latter type (application-specific).
Please refer to the Call
for Papers for the method of submitting candidate lecture or poster abstracts.
Prospective lecturers are encouraged to submit 3 abstracts, although a
lesser number is also acceptable.
The lectures of the meeting and some talks will be published as a book
by Kluwer in the NATO Science Series.
