Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) communication networks refer to the communication networks oriented to UAV platforms for realizing the communications between UAVs and ground stations. It is an important technology to break down the "information-isolated island" and realize efficient collaborative operation. In recent years, UAV communications networks have been rapidly developed and widely used in civil and military fields. With the rise of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and edge computing, their combinations with UAV communication networks have attracted significant attention and research from academia and industry. This special focus will focus on the theoretical models, core algorithms, and key equipment that need to be resolved in the networking, transmission, application, and test platforms of UAV communication networks, in order to promote the development of corresponding technologies.

Topics of Interest:

l  Architecture of UAV communication networks

l  Space-air-ground integrated network

l  UAV network deployment and trajectory optimization

l  Access and transmission technology for dynamic UAV networks

l  Channel propagation modeling and measurements

l  Resource scheduling and routing protocol design for UAV networks

l  Multi-band collaborative networking technology for UAV networks

l  Secure UAV communication networks

l  Machine learning based UAV communication networks

l  Mobile edge computing assisted by UAV communication networks

l  Beamforming enabled aerial networks
