The last few years have witnessed a tremendous growth of the demand for wireless services and a significant increase of the number of mobile subscribers. A recent data traffic forecast from Cisco reported that the global mobile data traffic reached 1.2 zettabytes per year in 2016, and the global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next 5 years. Based on these predictions, a 127-fold increase of the IP traffic is expected from 2005 to 2021. It is also anticipated that the mobile data traffic will reach 3.3 zettabytes per year by 2021, and that the number of mobile-connected devices will reach 3.5 per capita.
With such demands for higher data rates and for better quality of service (QoS), fifth generation (5G) standardization initiatives, whose initial phase was specified in June 2018 under the umbrella of Long Term Evolution (LTE) Release 15, have been under vibrant investigation. In particular, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has identified three usage scenarios (service categories) for 5G wireless networks: (i) enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), (ii) ultra-reliable and low latency communications (uRLLC), and (iii) massive machine type communications (mMTC). The vast variety of applications for beyond 5G wireless networks has motivated the necessity of novel and more flexible physical layer (PHY) technologies, which are capable of providing higher spectral and energy efficiencies, as well as reduced transceiver implementations.

The International Conference on Information Fusion is a premier forum for interchange of the latest research in information fusion and discussion of its impacts on our society. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia to report on the latest scientific and technical advances. Authors are invited to submit papers describing advances and applications in information fusion.
Fusion 2017 (http://www.fusion2017.org) will be held in Xi’an, China at the Wyndham Hotel on July 10–13, 2017. Xi’an is the best representative city of Ancient China. It has more than 3100 years of history Since the 11th century BC it had been China's Capital for more than 1100 years under 13 dynasties, including several most important ones such as Zhou, Qin, Han, Sui, and Tang. Xi'an was the root of the Silk Road, which connected the East and the West, and is the home of the world-famous Terracotta Army of more than 2200 years ago. In modern times, Xi'an has re-emerged as the center of the northwest China.
