ISIF 2016 Yaakov Bar-Shalom Award for a Lifetime of Excellence in Information Fusion

This award is sponsored by the International Society for Information Fusion (ISIF) to recognize a researcher or engineer for outstanding contributions to the field of information fusion throughout their career. Contributions include technical advances, technical vision and leadership, education and mentoring, novel applications of information fusion and the associated engineering achievements, and service to ISIF. This award may be given annually, if outstanding candidates are nominated, but it is expected to be given at least once every 3 years because individuals with the anticipated level of contributions to information fusion throughout a career will be rare. The award will be presented at the annual International Conference on Information Fusion.
