SwarmNet 2020
2nd IEEE WoWMoM Workshop on Wireless Networking, Planning, and Computing for UAV Swarms
15 June - 18 June, 2019, Cork, Ireland (https://swarmnet-workshop.github.io/2020)

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:
• Communication and networking protocols for UAV swarms
• Resilient communication protocols for multi-agent planning and control
• Delay-tolerant networking for UAVs
• Network topology control for performance optimization (connectivity, throughput, etc.)
• Wireless localization for UAVs
• Communication architectures and technologies for UAV air-traffic control
• UAVs in 4G/5G cellular networks
• UAV integration in the urban IoT
• Aerial video streaming for virtual/augmented reality
• Data offloading and mobile edge computing with UAVs
• Air-to-air, air-to-ground, and ground-to-air channel modeling for UAVs
• Cyber-security for UAVs
• UAV swarm network simulation platforms
• UAV swarm network testbeds, experimental evaluation, and prototyping

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 (TBA - Please check workshop website for updates) by March 29, 2020 (EXTENDED).

Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline: EXTENDED: March 29, 2020
Author Notification: April 15, 2020
Camera-ready submission: April 30, 2020
Workshop date: June 15, 2020
