Call for papers

The intersection of the Internet of Things and Li-Fi technology holds great promise and poses formidable challenges. The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to share early-stage ideas and results on how to leverage the huge potential of Li-Fi and the underlying Visible Light Communication technology in the Internet of Things.

Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of Li-Fi in the IoT are solicited. Papers describing prototype implementations and deployment of such applications and systems are particularly welcome. Informative surveys of the state of the art as well as position papers on controversial issues are also encouraged. Papers describing practical experiences with LiFi-based systems for the IoT and papers on lessons learned from underperforming or failed systems are welcome.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Energy efficiency in LiFi
  • Spectrum efficiency in LiFi
  • Low-power VLC systems
  • Simultaneous Data and Power Transfer
  • Passive Communication and Sensing
  • Resource-constrained VLC
  • Resilient LiFi for IoT applications
  • LiFi systems for home automation
  • LiFi systems for smart buildings
  • Interplay of LiFi and smart lighting
  • Indoor Positioning Systems based on LiFi/VLC
  • Integration of VLC/LiFi and mm-Wave technologies
  • Power-efficient underwater optical communications
  • Applications of LiFi to smart energy systems
  • Applications of LiFi to smart vehicles and smart transportation
  • Applications of LiFi to smart manufacturing
