DroNet 2020 - 6th ACM Workshop on Micro Aerial Vehicle Networks, Systems, and Applications

Co-located with ACM MobiSys 2020

***Please join us on Zoom***

*UPDATE* Select papers will also be considered for a Special Issue of the MDPI Sensors Journal
*UPDATE* The workshop will be held virtually via online video, consistent with the main MobiSys conference.
*UPDATE* Extended submission deadline to April 17, 2020 (see below).

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.
