AGU 2010 Session IN17: Information Fusion: Issues, Barriers and Approaches

Session Description:
Merging disparate data sources and models for multidisciplinary study is an increasingly urgent need.  Key drivers for this direction of research include requirements for improved situational awareness; the vital need for enhanced preparedness and swift, appropriate response to natural and manmade disasters; global climate change; and a wide range of other societal and environmental circumstances. Technology - including standards - for meeting these ends has advanced rapidly, but cultural, institutional, and related issues can impede our ability to apply it. We welcome submissions that describe successful integrative approaches in various categories of fusion - data, object/feature, and decision - that overcome barriers and obtain cooperation and coordination in multidisciplinary settings.

Conveners: George Percivall, Stefano Nativi, Peter Fox, Simon Cox
