Conference Call for Papers

We welcome you to take part in the Second International Workshop on Advances in Innovative Drone Enhanced Applications (IDEA19) that will be held in Helsinki (Finland) on 7-8 November 2019, in conjunction with 25th IEEE FRUCT Conference.


Drones are starting to be part of our daily lives, becoming vital for ensuring services in different fields such as precision farming, security, aerial inspection, media, explorations. Opportunities offered by drones, as a leverage for jobs and new business, are based on recent technological developments acting as a catalyst for innovative applications with great economic potential.

The IDEA19 workshop is organised by Arctic Drone Labs (Finland), Oulu University of Applied Sciences (Finland), University of Oulu (Finland), University of Helsinki (Finland), University of Bologna (Italy) and The Research Alliance for Autonomous Systems (Finland) with the aim of bringing together people interested to discuss and enlighten the challenges, the opportunities and the long term ambitions of innovative drone applications and technologies. IDEA19 is addressed to researchers, stakeholders and enterprises active in this domain.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following subject areas:

• Drones and IoT convergence

• Embedding flying sensors and actuators in IoT Infrastructures

• Simulation platforms for drone applications

• Aerial Multispectral Photography

• Drone-based monitoring in search, rescue and disaster management support

• Drone-based environmental and infrastructure monitoring

• Drones in deep-learning loops

• Drones in systems of systems loops

• Formation flying applications

• Beyond the line of sight drone operations

• Business models for drone start-ups

• Drones and pilots regulations trends

• Challenges, opportunities and threads in drone platforms, tools and apps

We welcome researchers as well as industry stakeholders to submit papers and take part in the workshop to share their research and findings. Early registration is a cost-effective way to participate in the Workshop and the 25th FRUCT conference. All workshop papers will be published Open Access in FRUCT proceeding at no additional cost (available for free under a CC BY-ND license download from FRUCT proceedings catalogue). The workshop posters and demos can be presented on the FRUCT25 Demo Session on 7 November 2019.

Call for papers and presentations

You can select one of the following 3 types of submissions:

– Full papers (min 6 full pages and up to 12 pages), deadline: September 16, 2019;

– Short papers (min 200 words, max 5 pages), deadline: September 16, 2019;

– Poster or demo summary (min 200 words, max 5 pages), by October 28, 2019.

Please note that some papers submitted as Full Papers can be recommended for publication as Work in Progress. Work in Progress publications are publications of generally good quality, which unfortunately don\’t get into 43% top of the conference, but still, deserve to be published, but just will get less guaranteed indexing. To increase your chance to get your paper accepted as Full Paper, we recommend to submit it by the Early bird submission deadline, as this way you always will have a second chance to improve the paper and get another round of review.

The Early bird submission deadline: August 23, 2019.

Please note that one person can be a coauthor of at maximum 3 submissions of all types: Submit
