The 2015 International Workshop on Image and Data Fusion (iwidf2015) is calling for papers to present at the event, occurring 21-23 July 2015 at Kona, Hawaii, USA.
With increasing amounts of data collected from satellite, airborne, and ground-based imaging systems, image and data fusion techniques are gaining more and more importance. By the integration of multi-sensor, multi-temporal, multi-resolution, and multi-platform image data, together with geospatial data, GIS, in-situ, and other statistical data sets, more accurate information can be obtained to provide for robust operational performance. This leads to increased confidence, reduced ambiguity and improved classification to enable evidence based management.
This international workshop will provide a forum for leading international scientists and young researchers to present their latest research developments, exchange their research ideas, and share their experience in techniques and applications of image and data fusion. There will be several technical sessions and lots of opportunities to meet fellow researchers from across the world to create and enhance collaborations.
The organisers of the event have issued a call for papers, with topics of interest including, but not limited to:
- Automatic registration or other geometric aspects of fusion with images from different spatial, spectral, and temporal resolutions, or acquisition modes
- Pixel-, feature- and decision-level fusion algorithms and methodologies
- Multi-source classification and information extraction
- Integration of images and products from satellite, airborne, and terrestrial sensor systems, as well as in-situ measurements
- Change detection and dynamic analysis based on remote sensing images
- Image and data mining from multi-platform, multi-source, multi-scale, multi-temporal data sets (e.g. geometric information, topological information, statistical information, etc.)
- Data fusion applications in the fields of mapping and monitoring natural resources, natural hazards, and environmental security
- High performance computing techniques in remote sensing data fusion
The event will also see a ‘Special Session’ entitled ‘Characterisation of volcanic hazards through image and data fusion.’
This special session invites innovative image and data fusion methods and applications on characterizing various aspects of volcanic hazards, including ground surface deformation and topographic change mapping, lava and pyroclastic flow mapping, thermal anomaly mapping, and volcanic gas and ash mapping, etc.
