What is MFI 2016?

The 2016 IEEE International Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration for Intelligent Systems (MFI 2016) is an international conference sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) and the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES).

When will MFI 2016 be held?

19 - 21 September 2016, Monday to Wednesday.

First day (Sept. 19) will be tutorials. Second and third day (Sept. 20 & 21) is the regular conference. Welcome reception is in the evening of the first day, Sept. 19. Banquet is on the evening of the second day, Sept. 20.


Visa Application

In case you need to apply for a visa to enter Germany, you may require a confirmation letter to confirm that you are registered as a participant of the conference. The MFI 2016 organizing committee has been in close contact with the Federal Foreign Office in Germany to be able to provide a simple and accessible way for you to obtain your a confirmation letter that will be accepted by your local embassy.

The Federal Foreign Office will tell the embassies to accept a digitally signed letter that will be provided by us. For this, the required personal information - full name, address, date of birth, gender and (if applicable) passport id - will be sent to the local embassy. Please note that we also need to know the embassy you have contacted or will contact in your visa application process.

To obtain your letter, simply fill in all required information on this form.

The Federal Foreign office has let us know that the participants should contact the embassies soon to be able to get a visa in time.
