In the last few years, Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs), have developed rapidly and have been used for emergent applications that range from inspection, surveillance, agriculture, cargo delivery, and communications. The symbiosis between UAVs and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) started quite naturally: UAVs perform remote sensing, act as data muler that carry the data collected by the WSN. Evolving WSN in Internet of Things (IoT) devices, single or multiple Drones/UAVs can cooperatively provide services that require efficient protocols where multiple objectives and constraints should be accounted.

For this workshop, we search for papers that combine design of algorithms, optimization, and test-bed to develop the theoretical foundations for the UAV systems operating in symbiosis with WSN in IoT applications. The numerous emergent applications nurtured by IoT may require an interdisciplinary approach, involving techniques from algorithm foundations and different areas, such as robotics, artificial intelligence, mathematical modelling, machine learning.
