Call For Papers

IEEE WISARN 2022: The 15th International Workshop on Wireless Sensor, Robot and UAV Networks

Co-Located with the 42nd IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (IEEE ICDCS 2022)

Technically co-sponsored by the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society

Bologna, Italy, July 10 - July 13, 2022


Wireless Sensor, Robot and UAV networks are specialized Cyber-Physical Systems made of intelligent devices characterized by the coordination and mobility of nodes that are able to accomplish distributed sensing and actuation tasks. To serve their use cases they employ a broad range of innovative techniques: deploying, repairing, and relocating sensors to optimize network topologies or to balance energy consumption; integrating with mobile networks such as 5G/6G or LEO satellite networks; processing data on the edge or offloading them towards the cloud. The benefits are limited only by imagination.

To this purpose, WiSARN aims at bringing together scientific communities that share this particular research agenda to discuss state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification, and implementation of architectures, algorithms, applications, and protocols for current and future applications of wireless ground robotic and aerial networks.

• Best Paper Award (BPA) sponsored by the Technology Innovation Institute (TII)
• Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a WISARN 2022 Special Issue with the MDPI Drones journal

Original, unpublished contributions are solicited in design, implementation and evaluation of wireless ground robotic and aerial networks. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
• Machine Learning-based communication and computing in robotic networks
• Communication protocols and wireless technologies for robotic systems
• UAV and robot networks in 5G/6G and LEO satellite systems
• UAV-aided wireless sensor networks
• Drone/Robot assisted edge computing
• Cloud/fog/edge computing platforms in robotic systems
• Data management, gathering and aggregation issues in robotic systems
• Modeling and control of fleet of UAVs
• Autonomic and self-organizing coordination and communication in robotic networks
• Sensor-robot and robot-robot coordination
• Energy-efficient and real-time communication protocols in Robot and UAV networks
• Distributed control and management for Robot and UAV network deployments
• Map exploration and pattern formation of mobile robots
• Robot task assignment
• Biologically inspired communication systems for Robot and UAV networks
• Software-Defined Aerial Networks
• Endurance Management
• Context-awareness and decision making for UAV systems
• Path planning, and target tracking in UAV networks
• Robot advanced motion control
• Optimal control of networked robots
• Quality of service, security, and robustness issues
