Adhoc delay-tolerant networks such as the Flying Adhoc Network (FANET) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs or Drones) are examples of swarm drones. Swarming autonomous UAVs equipped with powerful sensors having real-time capabilities can have tremendous impact in many disciplines. With swarm drones, the research goal is to define a system that consists of several well-formed participants working towards a well-defined central purpose but is realised through distributed control. When dealing with a swarm, building and comprehending a reliable communication system becomes a necessity because the UAVs must be in total sync. The application level difficulties of a fleet of UAVs or Swarm drones include how a group of flying robots can achieve a certain aim such as monitoring and surveillance, mapping, weather prediction, delivery of commodities, precision agriculture, and many more. Every drone in a swarm can have specialised data gathering and processing tasks with enough computational power to do them in real time. With minimal human work and contact, a swarm of drones can cover/monitor a broad region with high efficiency. Because the communication setup must serve as the swarm's backbone, communication issues such as line of sight, incompatible standards, and possible heterogeneity in UAVs present a number of research challenges in the development of the UAV swarm. As a result, the workshop's theme is to invite authors to present their work.

1. Disaster management

2. Weather forecast

3. Wildlife monitoring

4. Geographical mapping

5. Aerial Photography

6. Shipping delivery

7. Entertainment

8. Search and Rescue

9. Law enforcement

10. Precision Agriculture

11. Construction
