DroNet 2017 - 3rd ACM Workshop on Micro Aerial Vehicle Networks,
Systems, and Applications

Co-located with ACM MobiSys 2017

Robot vehicle platforms, often called “drones”, offer exciting new
opportunities for mobile computing. While traditional mobile systems
respond to device mobility (such as smartphones), drones allow
computer systems to actively control device location, allowing them to
interact with the physical world in new ways and with new-found scale,
efficiency, or precision. The startup cost to experiment with and
build real drone applications has dropped dramatically in recent
years, also thanks to technological developments driven by the
smartphone industry and the rise of the “makers” and DIY
movements. Recent popular applications employing drones are
3D-mapping, search and rescue, surveillance, farmland and construction
monitoring, delivery of light-weight objects and products, and video

DroNet welcomes contributions dealing with all facets of drones as
mobile computing platforms, including system aspects, theoretical
studies, algorithm and protocol design, as well as requirements,
constraints, dependability, and regulations. We are particularly
looking for papers reporting on experimental results of deployed
systems, summaries of challenges or advancements, measurements, and
innovative applications. The primary focus of this workshop will be on
civilian applications of drones.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Novel applications of drones
    Drone system design and deployment
    Drone ad-hoc networks
    Micro flying systems
    Aerial communication protocol design
    Drone operating systems
    Programming systems
    MAC and routing protocols for drone fleets
    Theoretical analysis and models for drone networks
    Solutions for sparse and dense fleets of drones
    Spectrum and regulatory issues
    Mission and context-aware solutions
    Drone coordination
    Mobility-aware and 3D communication
    Delay-tolerant networks and ferrying
    Energy-efficient operation and harvesting
    Integration of drones with backend systems
    Drone-based sensor networks
    Positioning and localization
    Swarm movement, coordination, and behavior
    Autonomous flight
    Artificial intelligence techniques for drones
    Vision and object tracking
    Human drone interaction
    Cooperative surveillance, smart cameras and sensors
    Acceptance, security, and privacy aspects
    Experimental results of aerial communication
    Drone testbeds

DroNet invites submission of original work not previously published or
under review at another conference or journal. Accepted papers will be
published by ACM and considered for the Best Paper Award. A Best
Presentation Award will be decided at the workshop.  For more
