WS-24: Visible Light Communications and Networking (VLCN)
Organizer: Anna Maria Vegni (Roma Tre University, Italy)
The growing international interest in research and development in Visible Light Communications (VLC) has provided novel applications, from smart city scenarios to indoor positioning, and fast downstream internet access. Moreover, recent advances made in the field of semiconductor sources, such as Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) in visible light and ultraviolet wavelengths, allowed developping short/medium range optical wireless communications at low power and low cost. The full-day workshop on Visible Light Communications and Networking (VLCN) aims to bring together researchers and hardware developers from academia and industry, working in the emerging VLCs technology, to present, share and discuss their latest research finding. The workshop plans to include all aspects and open issues of VLCs, from indoor to outdoor scenarios, from atmosphere to ground based applications, underwater and also medical applications, as well as novel modulation, coding and detection techniques for a range of optical spectra.
