Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,
we invite researchers working in the field to contribute with an article
to the Special Section of IEEE Access Journal on the topic.

"Networks of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles: Wireless Communications,
Applications, Control and Modelling"

Submission deadline is December 31st, 2017.

In recent years, we have seen an impressive growth in the use of
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV, also commonly referred as drones) for a
wide range of applications, spanning from military to commercial
domains. Several successful applications of drones already available in
the market include surveillance, reconnaissance, remote sensing, search
and rescue, aerial photography, crop surveys, on-demand emergency
communications, traffic control, monitoring natural resources like oil
or gas exploration etc. Given the unprecedented speed of these
developments, there is an urgent need of providing reliable and
efficient high speed communication links not only between flying drones
and their controlling sources, consumers, entities, but also among the
drone themselves. Drone communications paves the way towards significant
opportunities but is also challenging. The scope of this Special Section
in IEEE Access is to address the potential research areas in Automatic
Control, Avionics, Physical Layer and Cellular Communication that are or
will be revolutionized using drones. It also targets the possible
academic and industrial challenges and the opportunities that will arise
due to widespread use of drones. For this Special Section, we seek
prospective authors to submit their high-quality original and
unpublished contributions, surveys and case studies on the following
* 5G communication for UAV
* Monitoring of critical infrastructures
* Mobile internet of things
* Ad-hoc networking, routing and handover (Self Organizing Networks)
* Channel modeling for air-to-ground and air-to-air communication
* Physical layer design for drone based communication
* Channel reliability for drone based communication
* Power consumption and energy harvesting models
* Models and algorithms for control of UAV networks
* Position estimation and prediction
* Bio-inspired optimization approach for UAV networks
* Information and communication reliability
* QoS Control
* Test bed results for UAV communication and control
* Software-defined-radio design
* Simulation and emulation for UAV environment
* Sensor Fusion for UAV networks
* Ultra low latency control protocols
* Mobility impacts at different flying altitudes
* Sense and avoid, UAV traffic management
* D2D and Cognitive Communications
* Regulatory Issues
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article
as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations
of articles.

IEEE Access is a multidisciplinary, applications-oriented,
all-electronic open access journal, continuously presenting the results
of original research or development across all of IEEE’s fields of
interest. IEEE Access was recently the recipient of the 2015 PROSE Award
for “Best New Journal in STM,” and an IEEE Access article was awarded
the 2015 IEEE Donald G. Fink Award. IEEE Access is included in Web of
Science, and has received its first impact factor 3.244 in the 2016 JCR.

Some additional benefits of publishing in IEEE Access are:
- A rapid, binary peer-review process with a decision of
accept/reject in 4-6 weeks.
- The advantage of being published by an IEEE journal.
- Available for free to millions of users on the IEEE Xplore digital
- Multimedia integration and commenting.
- Convenient author-pays publishing model, with an article
processing charge of US $1,750 per article. IEEE members will
receive a discount.

We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article
as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads and citations of
