Dear Researchers/Authors,
You are invited to submit your high-quality research findings to 9th ACM 
Workshop on Micro Aerial Vehicle Networks, Systems, and Applications 
(DroNet) 2023.

Mid. June, 2023 - Helsinki, Finland
DroNet co-located with MobiSys 2023

Website: https://dronet2023.github.io/
Submission link: https://dronet23.hotcrp.com/

Aims and Scope
Robot vehicle platforms, often called “drones”, offer exciting new 
opportunities for mobile computing. Autonomous cooperative systems, made 
of intelligent devices (such as drones), may deploy and optimize the 
network to improve its coverage, build routes and fix network partitions 
to ensure the best communication performance, reduce energy consumption, 
and dynamically respond to detected network problems. Innovative 
solutions are built upon these drone networking primitives to accomplish 
cost-effective and wide-ranging mission-critical applications, including 
search and rescue, surveillance, 3D-mapping, farmland and construction 
monitoring, delivery of light-weight objects and products, and video.

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. We welcome in particular also contributions from 
interdisciplinary teams to present robotic work or applications focusing 
on the communication networks enabling the efficient control and 
context-awareness of teams of unmanned autonomous vehicles/systems with 
an emphasis on civilian and aerial applications, while related work on 
underwater/space/ground unmanned systems are also invited.
