The Information Fusion Journal is planning a special issue devoted
to Web Information Fusion. The World Wide Web provides a new medium
for information storage, sharing, processing and distribution. The
availability, accessibility and flexibility of information and tools
to access information lead to new opportunities. However, there are
many challenges, i.e., we have to deal with more complex tasks, and
more demands for quality and productivity. The challenges of seeking
the right information and learning to effectively use the existing
tools are greater due to the rate of growth and diversity of
information. The aim of this special issue is to provide a forum for
presentation on recent advances in Web Information Fusion. It is
meant to cover foundations, methodology and applications of Web
information fusion, including information fusion with the Web
technology and fusion of Web-based information. Soft computing
approach, for instance, with its tolerant of imprecision,
uncertainty, partial truth, and approximation, is highly promising
for the integration of diverse sources and types of Web information.

Manuscripts (which should be original and not previously published
or presented in a more or less similar any form under any other
forum) covering novel methods and applications of Web information
fusion especially with soft computing approaches are invited.
Topics appropriate for this special issue include, but are not
limited to:

* Web Information Fusion
* Novel Web Information Fusion Methods
* Web Information Fusion With Soft Computing Approaches
* Web Information Fusion with Classification Techniques
* Web Information Fusion with Clustering Techniques
* Web Mining for multi-source Data
* Web-based Support Systems for Information Fusion
* Information Fusion with Metasearch Engines
* Fusion of Web Search Engines
* Multimedia Web Data Fusion
* Information Fusion on Web-Based Remote Sensing
* Intelligent Agents For Multi-Source Web Information Fusion

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically online at
http://www.elsubmit.com/esubmit/inffus. (The corresponding author
will have to create a user profile if one has not been established
before at Elsevier) Simultaneously, please also send without fail
an electronic copy (PDF format preferred), to the Guest Editors
listed below.
