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.
