Wi-DroIT 2020 – 2nd International Workshop on Wireless Drones over Internet
of Things
Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles, CA, USA
May 25-27, 2020


in conjunction with the:
16th International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems
(DCOSS 2020)

Workshop papers will get 8 pages in the IEEE proceedings, in the same
volume with the DCOSS papers.

Important Dates
Paper Submission: 15th March
Acceptance Notification: TBD
Camera Ready: 15th April
Early Registration: TBD

For this workshop, we search for papers that combine design of algorithms,
optimization, and test-bed to develop the theoretical foundations for the
drone systems operating in symbiosis with WSN in IoT applications. The
numerous emergent applications nurtured by IoT may require an
interdisciplinary approach, involving techniques from algorithm foundations
as well as different areas, like robotics, artificial intelligence,
mathematical modeling. Applications in complex domains lead to situations
where multiple optimization objectives should be accounted in the proposed
solutions. Decentralized and distributed, robust and secure algorithms are
searched for drones systems that operate in rapidly-changing, uncertain,
and potentially adversarial environments.

Topics (Not limited to)
Autonomous WSN via Drones
Topology monitoring of WSN with Drones
Build Remote Sensing Networks in emergency context via Drones
Communication architectures and protocols of Drones over IoT
Modeling and analysis of Drone systems over IoT
Theoretical foundations for communication routing beyond line-of-sight of
Communication and networking aspects of cyber-physical systems
Theoretical foundations for parcel delivery using Drones
Drones/UAVS for monitoring network properties (coverage, connectivity) in
Drones for detecting or discovering events

Submission instructions
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts reporting
applied or technical research. Accepted and presented papers will be
published in the same volume with the DCOSS 2020 conference proceedings.
All papers will be reviewed by Technical Program Committee members and
selected papers will be organized for presentation at the workshop.

All submissions will be exclusively electronic with a maximum length of
eight (8) printed pages  including title, authors, abstract, figures,
diagrams, references and attachments.  Articles must be prepared in English
following the IEEE two-column Manuscript Templates for Conference
Proceedings (available here)  and submitted in PDF format only.
