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 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. 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.
