Recent advances in embedded computing, wireless communication, flight controllers, and miniaturized sensing have enabled the growth of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Networked swarms of such UAVs promise breakthroughs in public safety, commercial, and military applications including search-and-rescue, disaster response, infrastructure inspection, environmental monitoring, virtual/augmented reality, and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers working at the intersection of wireless networking, mobile computing, sensing, robotics, and/or planning to address a myriad of fundamental technical challenges that must be solved before UAV swarms and, more broadly, multi-UAV systems can be safely, effectively, and widely deployed. Since many of these challenges will not be able to be addressed without the help of UAV swarm simulation platforms, experimental testbeds/prototypes, and experimental evaluations, papers on these topics are especially encouraged.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Submissions may be up to 6 pages in length (including figures and references), formatted in two-column IEEE conference style with font size 10 point or greater. For the camera-ready (accepted) papers, authors can buy one additional page, for a total length of up to 7 pages.
Papers must be submitted electronically to EDAS ( https://edas.info/N25791 ) by March 26, 2019, 23:59 EDT [EXTENDED].
For guidelines regarding formatting, please refer to the IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings.
A copyright footer should be added to all camera ready submissions. The right footer is selected according the following criteria: (1) For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright; (2) For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-0270-2/19/$31.00 ©2019 Crown; (3) For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-0270-2/19/$31.00 ©2019 European Union; and (4) For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-0270-2/19/$31.00 ©2019 IEEE.
