Call For Papers

The 1st International Workshop on
Wirelessly Powered Systems and Networks (WPSN 2019)*
May 29-31, 2019
Santorini Island, Greece

*co-located with DCOSS 2019 (technically co-sponsored by IEEE)

******** Scope ********

Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) is the driving technology that will enable the next generation of the distributed sensor systems, including battery-less sensors, passive RFID, as well as IoT, 5G and M2M solutions. Distributed WPT-enabled devices can be powered by harvesting energy from the surroundings (for example electromagnetic energy), leading to a novel communication systems networks paradigm, the Wirelessly Powered Systems and Networks.

The WPSN workshop aims at providing an interdisciplinary reference forum focusing on the use of WPT as an enabler for improving the efficiency of current distributed communication systems and networks. Therefore, both tools and techniques to design (or improve) relevant distributed operations using WPT, as well as results from the analysis of data obtained through this enabler, are welcome in the workshop.

WPSN aims at engaging researchers working on
1. WPT-enabled networking protocols, algorithms and optimization
2. WPT-enabled communication methods, tools and techniques
3. Far-/near-field WPT technologies for networks and communications

******** Benefits ********

WPSN 2019 will be co-located with DCOSS 2019 at Santorini Island, Greece. Benefits of presenting a paper in WPSN 2019:
- accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of DCOSS 2019 and submitted for publication to IEEE Xplore.
- full 8-pages IEEE double column format
- parallel presentations to DCOSS, for broader visibility

******** Topics of Interest ********

The focus areas of the contributions can vary according the entire spectrum of distributed WPT applications. Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Optimization and approximation algorithms (mobility/energy/data management)
- Joint operation scheduling (routing, data gathering, ambient harvesting)
- Precise algorithmic models and efficient distributed protocols
- Algorithms for WPT devices deployment
- Safety provisioning through EM radiation control algorithms
- Peer-to-peer and crowd charging algorithms
- WPT for the IoT and 5G
- Algorithms for simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT)
- WPT for medical implants and wearable devices
- WPT for automotive technology and electric vehicles
- WPT for mobile communications, wireless sensor networks and UAVs
- WPT for home/Industrial appliances
- Solutions for SWIPT
- RF energy harvesting, rectennas and rectenna arrays
- High-frequency rectifying circuits, power transmitters and devices
- Near-field (inductive, resonant) energy transfer
- Microwave transmission and beaming
- Novel materials, fabrication techniques
- Energy storage elements, RFID-related electronics and self-powered sensors
- Measurement and characterization approaches for WPT components
- Standardization, regulations and biological effects

Distributed and decentralized approaches, interdisciplinary applications, and experimental implementations are particularly welcome
