Workshop on Optical Wireless Communication for 5G and Beyond – 2020
In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in wireless technologies to cater the varying quality of service (QoS) requirements of diversified applications such as advanced technology of smartphones, portable devices and the rapid growth of Internet of Things, e-Health, and intelligent transportation systems. As a consequence, there is an upsurge in data traffic over wireless networks. This ever-growing appetite for larger bandwidth and more data requires modern wireless system to transform from the conventional radio-frequency (RF) based communication to some other mode of communication such as optical wireless communication (OWC). The OWC technology offers advantages over RF technology such as free license, wide bandwidth, immunity to RF electromagnetic interference, and inherent security, which makes it very attractive for the emerging 5G wireless communications. However, the applications of OWC will face several challenges including the channel impairments, weather effects (raining, fogging, particle scattering, etc.), compatibility with existing networks, lighting constraints, scalability, user mobility, and tracking. These challenges create significant research activities at both academia and industry which make OWC a more efficient and reliable wireless solution to the future integrated networks.
The objective of the full-day workshop on OWC is an in-depth discussion and exchange of latest research on OWC among researchers, scientist, and software and hardware developers from both academia and industry. We call for high-quality technical paper submissions based on original research and will select some suitable papers to be presented at the workshop.
The primary scope of this workshop is an in-depth discussion and exchange of ideas related to the OWC research. The paper presentation is the main focus of this workshop where researchers would showcase their research work related to OWC domain. A secondary result of this workshop would be a talk given by invited keynote speakers about the state of the art to encourage young scientists and graduate students to contribute towards OWC research and development. Further, a panel discussion will provide a great platform to better understand the hot topics and identify future research problems related to OWC.
Main focus of the workshop is to attract area specific quality papers and posters. If time permits, we can include panel discussion (optional). The submission is sought from the following area of interests:
Papers will be fully peer reviewed. IEEE takes the protection of intellectual property very seriously. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism using Cross Check. By submitting your work you agree to allow IEEE to screen your work for plagiarism: http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck/index.html
