Abstract : Interactions between humans and machines areoften placed in a multi-layered network involving the multidimensionaltrust in communication, information, and socio-cognitivelayers. In this complex environment, how to filter and fuse heterogeneousdata is critical for effective decision making. In this work,we propose an ontology-based framework for information fusion,as a support system for human decision makers. In particular,we build upon the concept of composite trust, consisting of fourtrust types: communication trust, information trust, social trust,and cognitive trust. Based on the concept of multidimensionaltrust, we construct a composite trust ontology framework, calledComTrustO, that embraces four trust ontologies, one for eachtrust type. We present the details of the integrated ontologyframework and discuss a concrete example scenario.
