== The 6th ACM DroNet Workshop 2020 Call-For-Papers
== In Conjunction with ACM MobiSys 2020

*UPDATE 1* DroNet 2020 will be held online via video, consistent with MobiSys moving online.

*UPDATE 2* Select papers at DroNet will be considered for a special issue in the Sensors journal.

* Robot vehicle platforms, often called “drones”, offer exciting new
opportunities for mobile computing. Autonomous cooperative systems, made of
intelligent devices (such as drones), may deploy and optimize the network to
improve its coverage, build routes and fix network partition to ensure the best
communication performance, reduce energy consumption, and dynamically respond to
detected network problems. Innovative solutions are built upon these drone
networking primitives to accomplish cost-effective and wide-ranging
mission-critical applications, including search and rescue, surveillance,
3D-mapping, farmland and construction monitoring, delivery of light-weight
objects and products, and video production.

* 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. We welcome in particular also
contributions from interdisciplinary teams to present robotic work or
applications focusing on the communication networks enabling the
efficient control and context-awareness of teams of unmanned autonomous
vehicles/systems with an emphasis on civilian and aerial applications,
while related work on unmanned systems working underwater, in space or
on the ground is also invited.

* 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 passive/active 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
    - Results from prototypes and demonstrations
    - Drone testbeds

* DroNet invites submission of original work not previously published or under
review at another conference or journal.  The workshop will accept full paper,
poster, and demo submissions. Accepted papers will be published by ACM and
considered for the Best Paper Award and/or a Best Presentation Award.

* Best Paper Award.
All papers will be considered for the Best Paper Award. The
program committee will select a number of candidates for the award among
accepted papers, and select one or more award papers prior to the conference.

* Important Dates.
Paper Submission:               April 17, 2020
Notification of acceptance:        May 1, 2020
Camera Ready Deadline:            May 15, 2020
Workshop date:                   June 19, 2020

* Technical Program Chairs.
