Scope and Motivation

In recent years we have seen a growing international interest in research and development in OWC. Traditionally, OWC relies on high power solid state lasers or diode lasers for medium to long range applications. Recently we have seen remarkable advances in semiconductor sources such as light emitting diodes (LEDs) in visible light and ultraviolet wavelengths, multi-array light sources and detectors, tracking and steering. These advances provide huge potentials for short/medium range wireless communication applications at low power and low cost. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry working in emerging visible light communications (VLC) and ultraviolet communications (UVC) as well as the traditional wireless infrared communications (IRC) to present, share and discuss their latest research findings.

Main Topics of Interest
The workshop plans to focus on short to medium range optical wireless communications, from indoor to outdoor, from atmosphere to ground and underwater. Topics of interest include, but are NOT limited to:

- Mobile-to-infrastructure and mobile-to-mobile optical communication
- Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-traffic light optical communication
- Communication characteristics of single-chip and multi-chip lighting LEDs
- Impact of lighting in concurrent VLC design
- Modeling of indoor diffused and reflected light beams
- Modulation, coding and detection for different optical spectra
- Multi-input multi-output optical communication techniques
- VLC transceiver design and optimization
- VLC link duplexing and multiple access techniques
- UVC atmospheric scattering and absorption channel modeling
- UVC system design perspectives
- UVC range/rate/BER performance tradeoffs
- Beam diverging and concentrating techniques
- New aspects of IRC and applications
- Modeling of various noises in optical wireless communication
- Underwater optical channel modeling and system design
- LED pointing, acquisition and tracking in mobile scenarios
- Navigation and sensor networks by LEDs
- Wavelength planning in optical communication techniques
- Optical wireless interconnect in the datacenter
- Centralized and distributed optical wireless network designs
- Mobility, tracking and steering in indoor environment
- Fading mitigation in FSO links: spatial, temporal, polarization, coding, and adaptive approaches
- Optical wireless sensor networks
- Optical wireless positioning
- Optical wireless communications in 5G networks
