Special Issue Call for Papers:

It has become increasingly common in science and technology to gather data about systems at different levels of granularity or from different perspectives. With the emergence of Smart City, plethora of data sources have been made available for wide variety of applications. Data fusion is the process of integrating information from multiple sources to produce specific, comprehensive, unified data about an entity.

Smart data aims to filter out the noise data and produce valuable data, which can be effectively used by enterprises and governments for planning, operation, monitoring, control, and intelligent decision making. Although unprecedentedly large amount of data can be available with the advancement of advanced data fusion techniques, the key is to explore how big data can become smart data and offer intelligence. Advanced big data modeling and analytics are indispensable for discovering the underlying structures from fused data and further acquiring smart data.

The aim of this theme issue is to explore the state-of-the-art, methodologies and applications related to all aspects of Fusion from big data to smart data. Review or summary articles — for example a critical evaluation of the state of the art, or an insightful analysis of established and upcoming technologies — may be accepted if they demonstrate academic rigor and relevance.
