Special Session on Visible Light Communications

Humankind has been utilizing light as a communication medium for many years, and light continues to be of great benefit in the field of communication. On 20 December 2013, The United Nations (UN) General Assembly 68th Session proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies. Visible light communication (VLC) is a new way of wireless communication using visible light to provide cable free communication at very high bit rates without causing any interference to RF-based devices.
The special session on Visible Light Communications aims to provide an international forum for the dissemination of original research results, new ideas and practical development experiences which concentrate on both theory and practices.
