Important announcement regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

IEEE has been monitoring the developing Coronavirus, COVID-19. The 
safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. 
After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news 
released by relevant national departments, the Organizing Committee of 
IEEE SECON 2020, in concert with the Steering Committee and IEEE, has 
decided that the conference will run as a virtual conference (i.e., 
using remote audio/video support) and not as an in-person event. Authors 
will be required to present their paper remotely, according to IEEE 
policies and procedures about publication(s). Attendees will still be 
able to enjoy the presentations and interact with the authors remotely.
We will communicate the details of the specific audio/video tools we 
will be using, as well as, the scheduling and format of paper 
presentations and other conference events.
A registration will still be required for all authors and conference 
attendees; we are currently re-defining this aspect. For this reason, 
the registration deadline originally communicated to authors of accepted 
papers is postponed to a later date. However, the deadline for the 
camera-ready version remains the same.
We will soon post further updates about the reconfiguration of other 
aspects of the conference.

Call for Papers
2nd International Workshop on Internet of Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles 
(IAUV 2020)

In conjunction with the IEEE SECON 2020

June 22-26, 2020, Como, Italy
Submission deadline: April 15, 2020
Notification: April 30, 2020
Camera ready: May 15, 2020
Workshop Day: June 22-26, 2020



Autonomous unmanned vehicle networks in civil applications are 
considered with increasing interest. Such networks are envisioned to 
consist of wireless sensors, robots and unmanned (aerial, ground, 
underwater) vehicles and are being used in environmental monitoring, 
border surveillance, network provisioning, delivery, construction, 
emergency or disaster assistance. The challenges in the design of these 
networks range from physical control of the vehicles, navigation, to 
communication limitations.  Due to diverse and interdisciplinary nature 
of these challenges, algorithms and design principles proposed by 
networking, robotics, control theory, computer vision and artificial 
intelligence research communities will need to be utilized.

IAUV aims to bring together state-of-the-art contributions on the 
design, specification and implementation of architectures, algorithms 
and protocols for current and future applications of autonomous unmanned
vehicle networks, with a special focus on unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) 
or drone networks.

•    Task allocation
•    Architectures and topology control
•    Localization
•    Quality of service, security and robustness issues
•    Internet of Things (IoT) applications and prototypes
•    Cooperative control of multiple UAVs
•    Software-Defined Aerial Networks
•    Context-awareness and decision making for UAV systems
•    Path planning, and target tracking in autonomous unmanned vehicle



All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance 
through peer reviewing. To submit your paper, it is required that the 
manuscript follows the standard IEEE camera-ready format (double column, 
10-pt font) and be submitted as PDF file (formatted for 8.5-11 inch 
paper) as well as the requirement set by the EDAS paper submission 
system. Submitted paper must be original and unpublished papers with no 
more than 6 pages, including bibliography.

The organizing committee of IAUV reserves the right to not review papers 
that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or 
published elsewhere.

Submissions must include: title; abstract; keywords; authors and 
relative affiliations with email addresses. During the initial paper 
submission process via EDAS, the authors are required to make sure the
PDF file and EDAS registration page of a paper have the same list of 
authors and paper title. Be certain to add all authors in EDAS during 
the initial paper submission process. Failure to comply with this rule
may cause a paper to be withdrawn from the review process. Once reviewed 
the listing of authors connected to the paper can NOT be changed.

All accepted papers of SECON (main program and workshops), after being 
presented onsite at the conference, will be included in the proceedings 
to be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore®.



Submission deadline: April 15, 2020
