Wi-UAV 2010 : Globecom Workshop on Wireless Networking for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Call For Papers
IEEE Int. Workshop on Wireless Networking for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
in conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2010
Miami, FL, USA
WORKSHOP DATE: DECEMBER 6, 2010
PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: July 2, 2010
the international IEEE workshop on Wireless Networking for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Wi-UAV 2010, http://www.wi-uav.org), co-located with the IEEE International Conference on Global Communications (GLOBECOM 2010), will be held in Miami, Florida, USA on December 06, 2010.
You are kindly invited to submit your research paper to this workshop and discuss current innovative technological advances in the area of UAV communication systems and applications.
The deadline for submission via the EDAS system is: July 2nd, 2010.
Aims and Scope:
The availability of low-cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), such as quadrocopters and blimps, opens up the prospects of an entirely new class of interconnected Low Altitude Platforms, which are hosted at altitudes of up to a few hundred meters. These aerial networks allow for new sensor applications like 3D-air-quality-measurements on the one hand and for new navigational strategies that are based on inter-robot communication like swarming on the other hand. Generally, the wireless networks for UAVs require highly reliable and low delay links for transmitting, administering and managing UAVs and user/sensor/mission data respectively. At the same time UAVs offer the capability to provide ad-hoc wireless networks, for example to facilitate temporary communication hot spots in case of public events and emergencies. Additionally, UAV-based networks may be flexibly deployed to compensate network outages. The workshop aims to share and discuss most recent results of various international research initiatives in the area of communication systems for aerial wireless networks. The focus of the workshop will be based on projects and research aiming at civilian applications.

Submission Guidelines and Publication:
GLOBECOM workshops accept only original, previously unpublished papers.
Concurrent submission to GLOBECOM and other conferences or journals is not allowed. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers in IEEE conference style up to 5 pages through EDAS submission system (http://www.edas.info/newPaper.php?c=8724&track=9278), but one additional page is allowed with additional publication fee.
Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE digital library (IEEE Xplore). An accepted paper must be registered before the registration deadline. An accepted paper should be presented at the workshop. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the workshop proceedings and the program. GLOBECOM has the right to remove an accepted and registered but not presented paper from the IEEE digital library.
Submission due: July 2, 2010 (Friday)
Decision notification due: August 13, 2010 (Friday)
