IEEE Workshop on Li-Fi Technologies & Applications


This is an event sponsored by IEEE Photonics Society Sweden Chapter

The Li-Fi Workshop is co-organized with the IEEE Photonics Society Sweden Chapter, IEEE Sweden Social Implications of Technology (SIT), Lighting Research Center (LRC), and the Swedish Energy Agency (SEA).

Li-Fi (Light Fidelity) is a visible light communication (VLC) system, where LEDs used for illumination are used for optical wireless data communication at the same time. The widespread future use of LED lamps for illumination creates an opportunity for VLC.

This workshop deals with all aspects of Li-Fi from research to applications, as well as providing an insight to the supply change from device vendors to system providers and end-users. The Swedish Energy Agency (SEA) will also inform about research funding opportunities, as well as arrange a tour in their lighting lab.

The number of seats in the room is limited to 35 and 10 Seats are reserved for IEEE members.

Registration will start on 24 October 2018.
Registration will close on 5 December 2018.

Workshop committee:

- Christofer Silfvenius (Swedish Energy Agency) – Workshop chair
- Anders Hallberg (Swedish Energy Agency)
- Athanasios Stavridis (Ericsson)
- Arne Alping (IEEE Photonics Society - Sweden Chapter)
