OVERVIEW
=========
Micro and nano aerial vehicles (MAVs and NAVs), often referred to as 
drones, are unmanned aerial vehicles of various forms, such as small 
quadrocopters, airplanes, balloons, or tiny flapping wing vehicles. They 
are novel mobile unmanned systems currently investigated in various 
mission-oriented civilian applications. Recent popular applications 
employing MAVs are 3D-mapping, search and rescue, surveillance, farmland 
and construction monitoring, delivery of light-weight objects and 
products (e.g., Amazon has recently advertised their new drone delivery 
system), or video taking during sports events. Such drones are 
autonomous systems with a good awareness of their environment, provided 
by rich on board sensors, such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, lasers, 
GPS units and cameras, and embedded image processing. Nevertheless, all 
useful applications require a reliable communication link, or even rely 
on fleets of MAVs that need to coordinate their activities.

PROGRAM
=========
We are proud to announce an exciting program consisting of a 
distinguished keynote, two
paper sessions, and a poster session.  Details can be found at:
