Scope

Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) is the driving technology that will enable the next generation of the distributed sensor systems, including battery-less sensors, passive RFID, as well as IoT, 5G and M2M solutions. Distributed 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 distributed 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 WPT-enabled networking protocols, algorithms and optimization; WPT-enabled communication methods, tools and techniques; Far-/near-field WPT technologies for networks and communications.
Important Note: An extended version of the best WPSN 2021 paper will be invited to appear in a Special Issue of the MDPI Sensors journal (JCR/SJR Q1), without publication fees.
Accepted and presented papers will appear in IEEE* Xplore and all major publication indexes (WoS, Scopus, etc).
* WPSN and DCOSS has always been technically co-sponsored by IEEE; approval for this year pending.

Topics

The focus areas of the contributions can vary according to the entire spectrum of distributed WPT applications. Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Submissions

Submissions will be made using the EasyChair server. The workshop submission link is:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wpsn2021
Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature for presentation at the workshop and publication in the WPSN 2021 Proceedings. All papers will be reviewed and evaluated by independent experts and selected based on their originality, merit, and relevance to the workshop. Accepted and presented papers will be published as part of the DCOSS 2021 conference proceedings.
Note that the workshop follows single-blind review policy. The names and affiliations of all the authors must be presented in the submitted manuscript.
No-show papers submitted by authors who did not present the paper in-person will not be included in the workshop proceedings. No refund of the paid fees can be claimed by the no-show author. Presentations by proxies are not allowed, unless explicitly approved by the organizers.
The manuscripts must be prepared in English, following the IEEE two-column Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings (available here) with a maximum length of eight (8) printed pages including text, figures, and references. Authors can add at most two (2) pages, but only for an appendix, i.e. these two pages contain supplementary material only. The additional two pages will incur overlength charges at $100/page.

Camera Ready Instrucitons: To be provided later.
