IoTUAV 2024 - The First International Conference on Internet of Things and Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles

November 03, 2024 - November 07, 2024

IoTUAV 2024: Call for Papers
Onsite and Online Options: In order to accommodate a large number of situations, we are offering the option for either physical presence or virtual participation (pdf slides or pre-recorded videos).

The widespread adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) led to multi emerging directions in systems design and implementation. One particular domain is concerning the autonomy and automation, especially Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs),  because of challenges on secure and reliable connectivity and privacy preservation. The development of aerial drones, terrestrial, underearth, and underwater UAV-based infrastructures created a plethora of applications (energy, agriculture, transportation, avionic, health, etc.). The used of advanced technologies on sensing, edge computing, computing, and data processing and interpretation via Deep Learning requires a consideration of appropriate models, protocols, validation, and considerations of human-centric global issues (climate, energy, pollution, battlefield, wellness)

IoTUAV focuses on advanced topics on integrating IoT, UAV and AI/Deep Learning and target complementary solutions and needs.  The event considers the research works combining synergistic needs.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.

INSTRUCTION FOR THE AUTHORS

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to one of the IARIA Journals.

Publisher: XPS (Xpert Publishing Services)
Archived: ThinkMindTM Digital Library (free access)
Prints available at Curran Associates, Inc.
How to submit to appropriate indexes.

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Contribution types

  • regular papers [in the proceedings, digital library]
  • short papers (work in progress) [in the proceedings, digital library]
  • ideas: two pages [in the proceedings, digital library]
  • extended abstracts: two pages [in the proceedings, digital library]
  • posters: two pages [in the proceedings, digital library]
  • posters: slide only [slide-deck posted on www.iaria.org]
  • presentations: slide only [slide-deck posted on www.iaria.org]
  • demos: two pages [posted on www.iaria.org]

FORMATS

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost.

Helpful information for paper formatting for MS Word can be found here.

There is a community provided LaTeX template: the CTAN package iaria (with full IARIA formatting rules, including IARIA citation style, but for providing citation style it is tightly bound to pdflatex+biblatex+biber). In addition, there is also iaria-lite (not bound to pdflatex+biblatex+biber, but compatible with any TeX stack; thus, it cannot provide the IARIA citation formattings, but only the titlepage and content-related IARIA formatting rules). Based on the iaria package, there is a minimal working example as Overleaf template. When you are using the LaTeX templates, please still adhere to the additional editorial rules.

Slides-based contributions can use the corporate/university format and style.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of contribution acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

We would recommend that you should not use too many extra pages, even if you can afford the extra fees. No more than 2 contributions per event are recommended, as each contribution must be separately registered and paid for. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to ensure that the paper will be included in the conference proceedings and in the digital library, or posted on the www.iaria.org (for slide-based contributions).
