Optical Wireless Communication - Devices, Algorithms and Networks


The aim of this session is to discuss novel methods for optical wireless communications with a particular focus on novel electrical to optical conversion devices, test platforms, experimental results, optical sensors and devices, novel implementations for receivers and transmitters and industrial applications.. In addition, the session aims to highlight advances in novel algorithms that can improve the data rate or network robustness of OWC systems.


All accepted and presented papers delivered at UNet 2017 will be published as part of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). They will also be submitted to appear in SpringerLink, Scopus, ISI, DBLP and other leading indexing services.

Special Session Chair

Nikola Serafimovski worked with major companies in the area of LiFi technology and commercialization, leading the creation and cultivation of the LiFi ecosystem, marketing, sales and standardization. He is the current the Chair of the IEEE 802.11 Light Communications topic interest group as well as secretary of the committee for the IEEE 802.15.7r1 standard for optical wireless communications. Nikola has been a speaker at numerous events talking about LiFi at Lighting for Rail, TEDx Bucharest, LUX Live and more.

Nikola's experience with T-Mobile and T-Home in Macedonia focused on mobile network deployment and analysis as well as database app development. Nikola worked for the UK-China Science Bridges project to successfully demonstrate the world’s first practical implementation of the Spatial Modulation MIMO concept. He received a BSc in electrical engineering and computer science and an MSc in communications, system and electronics, both from Jacobs University Bremen, Germany. Nikola earned his PhD in digital communications and signal processing from the University of Edinburgh.
