International Workshop on UAV Swarms for Internet of Vehicles (IoV):
in conjunction with ANTS 2022
IIT Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India
December 18, 2022

We are pleased to announce the International Workshop on UAV Swarms for Internet of Vehicles (IoV):
to be held in conjunction with ANTS 2022 at IIT Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India. This workshop aims to explore the application of new and innovative technology research toward improving UAV Swarm for Internet of Vehicles(IoV). The focus is to provide an inter-disciplinary platform for researchers to exchange ideas, present results, share experiences, stimulate new research, and foster collaborations among computer scientists, engineers, social scientists, and representatives of government and non-governmental for the development of UAV Swarm for Internet of Vehicles(IoV).

 About The Workshop

To enable a large-scale and ubiquitous automotive network, traditional vehicles-to-everything (V2X) technology is evolving to the Internet of vehicles(IoV) for increasing demand for emerging advanced vehicular applications such as transportation systems, autonomous vehicles (automatic driving), Intelligent traffic control, and collaborative environmental perception, which require extensive data transmission and information exchange that are beyond the capability of conventional connected vehicles. Due to their flexibility and high maneuverability, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can quickly provide wireless connection to ground vehicles in the mobile environment. In the current scenario, the IoV mainly relies on the ground communication network. However, the ground wireless network will have a great limitation when supplying communication services for the areas where ground facilities are lacking or paralyzed. To deal with these issues the space-air-ground integrated vehicle network, constituted of satellites, high-altitude platforms, and low-altitude UAVs has become an effective method to supply services to vehicles in various situations. A UAV-enabled Network provides the facility of low price, strong mobility, and easy deployment. The UAV can quickly form a network with ground vehicles and provide them with reliable data transmission. Fading links are used in the ground network, which leads to poor transmission performance, whereas line-of-sight (LoS)links will be established between UAVs and Vehicles which will bring better transmission performance. Currently, an extensive number of possible research challenges are there in the development of the UAV-enabled internet of vehicles. As a result, the workshop's theme is to invite various national and international academia, research professionals, Industry, and government entities to present their quality research work. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless Technologies for Internet of Vehicles applications
  • UAV-assisted internet of vehicles architecture

===Paper Submission Guideline===

Submissions must be original, unpublished work, and not under consideration at another conference or journal. Submitted papers must be at most six (06) pages long, including figures, tables, references, and appendices in two-column 10pt IEEE Conference format. Papers must exclude authors’ names and affiliations for double-blind peer reviewing by the PC. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present (online or offline) their papers at the workshop venue. The IEEE LaTeX template should be useful in complying with the above requirements. The presented papers will be published in the IEEE ANTS 2022 Proceedings, available at the IEEE Xplore. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper. In addition, no-shows of accepted papers at the workshop will result in those papers NOT being included in the proceedings.
