What is MFI 2021?

The 2021 IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration (MFI 2021) is an international conference sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) and the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES). The conference is held together with the Symposium Sensor Data Fusion (SDF).  The conference is hybrid conference with its physical part at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

When will MFI 2021 be held?

September 23 – 25, 2021 (Thursday to Saturday). The last day (Sept. 25) will be tutorials. The first and second day (Sept. 23 & 24) are the regular conference days.
