Call For Papers

In conjunction with the IEEE SECON 2020 (

June 22-26, 2020, Como, Italy


Submission deadline: April 1, 2020

Notification: April 30, 2020

Camera ready: May 15, 2020

Workshop Day: June 22-26, 2020

Selected authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to the MDPI Special Issue on « UAV-Based Applications in the Internet of Things (IoT) », submission deadline July 15th, 2019.

Autonomous unmanned vehicle networks in civil applications are considered with increasing interest. Such networks are envisioned to consist of wireless sensors, robots and unmanned (aerial, ground, underwater) vehicles and are being used in environmental monitoring, border surveillance, network provisioning, delivery, construction, emergency or disaster assistance. The challenges in the design of these networks range from physical control of the vehicles, navigation, to communication limitations. Due to diverse and interdisciplinary nature of these challenges, algorithms and design principles proposed by networking, robotics, control theory, computer vision and artificial intelligence research communities will need to be utilized.

IAUV aims to bring together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification and implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for current and future applications of autonomous unmanned vehicle networks, with a special focus on unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone networks.

• UAV swarms

• Autonomous robot networks

• Modeling and simulation

• UAV-aided wireless sensor networks

• Optimal control of networked robots

• Ad hoc networks of drones

• Modeling and control of fleet of UAVs

• Self-organizing coordination and communication

• Energy-efficient and real-time communication protocols

• Bandwidth-efficient and delay-tolerant communication protocols

• Communication protocols for swarms of mobile robots

• Map exploration and pattern formation of multi-robot systems

• Task allocation

• Architectures and topology control

• Localization

• Quality of service, security and robustness issues

• Internet of Things (IoT) applications and prototypes

• Cooperative control of multiple UAVs

• Software-Defined Aerial Networks

• Context-awareness and decision making for UAV systems

• Path planning, and target tracking in autonomous unmanned vehicle networks

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through peer reviewing. To submit your paper, it is required that the manuscript follows the standard IEEE camera-ready format (double column, 10-pt font) and be submitted as PDF file (formatted for 8.5-11 inch paper) as well as the requirement set by the EDAS paper submission system. Submitted paper must be original and unpublished papers with no more than 6 pages, including bibliography.

The organizing committee of IAUV reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere.

Submissions must include: title; abstract; keywords; authors and relative affiliations with email addresses. During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, the authors are required to make sure the PDF file and EDAS registration page of a paper have the same list of authors and paper title. Be certain to add all authors in EDAS during the initial paper submission process. Failure to comply with this rule may cause a paper to be withdrawn from the review process. Once reviewed the listing of authors connected to the paper can NOT be changed.

All accepted papers of SECON (main program and workshops), after being presented onsite at the conference, will be included in the proceedings to be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore®.

Submission deadline: April 15, 2020

Notification: April 30, 2020

Camera ready: May 15, 2020

Workshop Day: June 22-26, 2020

Important announcement regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19
IEEE has been monitoring the developing Coronavirus, COVID-19. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, the Organizing Committee of IEEE SECON 2020, in concert with the Steering Committee and IEEE, has decided that the conference will run as a virtual conference (i.e., using remote audio/video support) and not as an in-person event. Authors will be required to present their paper remotely, according to IEEE policies and procedures about publication(s). Attendees will still be able to enjoy the presentations and interact with the authors remotely.
We will communicate the details of the specific audio/video tools we will be using, as well as, the scheduling and format of paper presentations and other conference events.
A registration will still be required for all authors and conference attendees; we are currently re-defining this aspect. For this reason, the registration deadline originally communicated to authors of accepted papers is postponed to a later date. However, the deadline for the camera-ready version remains the same.
We will soon post further updates about the reconfiguration of other aspects of the conference.
