The International Workshop on

Sensing, Communication, and Control for Unmanned Aerial Systems

(SCC-UAS, 2019)

November 11-12, 2019 Orlando, FL, USA

Organized in conjunction with IEEE ICII 2019

Recent advances in networking, communications, computation, software, and hardware technologies have powered a revolution of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Currently, UAVs has been increasingly integrated into a wide range of military, civilian, and industrial applications. Those applications include but are not limited to remote sensing, public safety, first responders, infrastructure inspection, precision agriculture, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), etc. However, due to the complexity of dynamic communication and operational environment of UAV, the constrained on-board computational and energy resources of UAV, the current research still lacks coordinated solutions for technical challenges in multiple domains of UAS. The goal of the SCC-UAS workshop is to bring together internationally leading academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results aimed at addressing all aspects of UAS communication, sensing, networking, control, cybersecurity, and data processing.


To ensure complete coverage of the advances in this field, the SCC-UAS Workshop solicits original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topical areas:

    • Network architectures and communication protocols for UAV communication.
    • Energy-aware UAV communication, operation, and control for UAV
    • Cybersecurity security of UAV communication.
    • Hardware security in UAV systems.
    • Security and privacy issues in UAV systems
    • Anomaly detection of UAV systems.
    • Flexible sensing, processing and control architectures for UAV systems
    • Spectrum sensing techniques for UAV detection.
    • Ad-hoc networking and sensor networks for UAVs.
    • Data processing for UAV systems
    • Big data and machine learning for UAV systems.
