Call for papers

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit high-quality full draft papers (6-8 pages, IEEE format). All submissions are subject to a peer-review process by the technical program committee. Accepted and presented papers will be submitted to IEEE for publication. At least one of the authors of each accepted contribution is expected to register for the conference and to present the paper.

Paper Submission

Guidelines for Paper Submission

Submitted papers published in the MFI 2024 Conference Proceedings must meet IEEE and RAS standards and requirements. These apply to the post-conference distribution of the Conference Proceedings as well, including submission to IEEE Xplore. Submitted papers must strictly adhere to the formatting instructions. The papers must be at least 4 pages long and should not exceed 6 pages. A regular registration without discounts includes one paper. Papers up to 8 pages are permitted, but extra page charges apply for each page beyond the 6 page limit.

Formatting and Templates

All papers must be formatted according to the IEEE RAS template (letter size paper). Templates and other supporting files can be downloaded using the following links:

Detailed instructions and support for the templates are provided under the links.

Use these templates to prepare the initial papers and final papers

Call for Special Sessions

The Organizing Committee of the 2024 IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration (IEEE MFI 2024) is welcoming proposals for Special Sessions on the theory and application of multi-sensor fusion and integration. Proposals that address “breaking news” research or topics that go beyond the typical approaches or may be difficult to categorize for the regular sessions are of particular interest.

Special Session Proposal Requirements

Each proposal must include:

  • the title of the proposed special session,
  • a short session abstract, including the significance of the topic and the rationale for the proposed session,
  • a list of four or more invited papers including a tentative title, author list, and a short abstract for each paper.
  • As a prospective special session organizer, we further invite you to chair your special session yourself as well as support us during the reviewing process.

Special Session Approval Process and Paper Review Process

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.

Submission Instructions

Please submit your proposal by May 5th via e-mail to special-sessions@mfi2024.org.

You may also contact the special session chairs via this e-mail address in case of any question concerning your (planned) special session proposal for MFI 2024.

Call for Tutorials

The Organizing Committee of the 2024 IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration (MFI 2024) is welcoming proposals for Tutorials on the theory and application of multi-sensor fusion and integration.

Theme and Topics of Interest

Proposals for tutorials may cover the conference's topics of interest as found in the MFI 2024 Call for Papers. Other areas where multisensor fusion and integration are applicable are especially encouraged. Examples include but are not limited to fusion of soft and hard data, deep learning, fusion for cybersecurity, autonomous systems, and robotics. Tutorial length will be 3 hours.

Tutorials should cover a single topic in detail and should present the state of the art about a frontier topic, enabling attendees to fully appreciate the current issues, main schools of thought and possible application areas.

Tutorial proposals should not exceed 2 pages and should contain the following information:

  • Title of the proposed tutorial.
  • Intended audience and prerequisites for the attendees' background knowledge.
  • Description of the tutorial, including the learning objectives and a short summary of the material to be presented.
  • Biographical sketch(es) of the instructor(s) including previous lecture and tutorial experience

Submission Instructions

Proposals should be submitted by May 31st in plain text or PDF, by email to tutorials@mfi2024.org with the subject: 'MFI 2024 Tutorial Proposal'.
