Call for Papers (Preliminary)

Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) is the driving technology that will enable the next generation of the current consumer electronics revolution, including battery-less sensors, passive RFID, as well as IoT, 5G and M2M solutions. 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 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

(i) WPT-enabled networking protocols, algorithms and optimization

(ii) WPT-enabled communication methods, tools and techniques

(iii) Far-/near-field WPT enabling technologies for networks and communications

The focus areas of the contributions can vary according the entire spectrum of distributed WPT applications, including but not limited to: Internet of Things, medical implants and wearable devices, automotive technology and electric vehicles, mobile communications, smartphones, wireless sensor networks, unmanned aerial vehicles, spacecraft engineering, industrial/home appliances, standardization, regulations and biological effects, solutions for SWIPT.

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