*Tomorrow May 7 2020* will be the last day for submitting a paper to:
Wi-DroIT 2020 – 2nd International Workshop on Wireless Drones over Internet
of Things

June 15-17, 2020

Due to the pandemic, DCOSS 2020 Workshops will be held in an online manner,
without physical attendance. Still, all accepted papers will be included in
the IEEE Proceedings as planned, in the same volume with the main event.
Reduced registration fees will apply.


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.

Few selected papers will be invited for the:
Special Issue “Routing in Aerial, Underground, and Underwater Wireless
Sensor Networks”, of
The journal Sensors (

    Submission: May 7, 2020 [LAST DAY]
    Notification: May 30, 2020

In the last few years, Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs), have developed
rapidly and have been used for emergent applications that range from
inspection, surveillance, agriculture, cargo delivery, and communications.
The symbiosis between UAVs and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) started
quite naturally: UAVs perform remote sensing, act as data-mule that carry
the data collected by the WSN. Evolving WSN in Internet of Things (IoT)
devices, single or multiple Drones/UAVs can cooperatively provide services
that require efficient protocols where multiple objectives and constraints
should be accounted.

For this workshop, we search for papers that combine design of algorithms,
optimization, and test-bed to develop the theoretical foundations for the
UAV 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
and different areas, such as robotics, artificial intelligence,
mathematical modeling, machine learning. Possible topics are:

    Autonomous WSN via Drones
    Topology monitoring of WSN with Drones
    Build Remote Sensing Networks via Drones
    Communication architectures and protocols of Drones over IoT
    Modeling and analysis of Drone systems over IoT
    Precision Agriculture
    Monitoring crops
    Controlling bugs in Agriculture
    Drones for environment monitoring
    Autopilot and UAS autonomy
    UAV mission planning, path planning, and scheduling
    Parcel delivery using Drones
    4G-5G networks and UAVs
    Constraints and multiobjective optimization problems in UAVs
    Ground Localization with Drones
    Cooperative control of multiple UAVs
    UAV secure communication techniques
    Optimal UAV deployment strategies
    Experimental results, simulators and test beds for drone networks
    Single UAV Applications
    Multi-UAV Applications
    Human Rights and Drones

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that
demonstrate current research on distributed sensor systems related to
Wi-DroIT topics of interest. Please use the US letter size (8.5 X 11 in)
standard IEEE conference LaTeX format or Microsoft Word template available
on the link below:

All submissions should be written in English and submitted as a full paper.
Full papers should have a maximum of eight (8) printed pages including
figures and references. Full papers are expected to describe fully
developed ideas with a thorough evaluation.
Note that Wi-DroIT does not follow the double-blind review policy. The
names and affiliations of all the authors must be present in the submitted
