We welcome original research papers in all areas of OWC spanning from characterization of diverse propagation media to modelling, design and development of devices, components, algorithms, protocols and systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

• Indoor optical channel modeling and characterization
• Characterization of meteorological phenomena for outdoor channels
• Statistical models for mobile links, e.g., aeronautical, vehicular systems
• MIMO FSO systems
• Multi-hop FSO Systems
• Massive MIMO VLC
• Cooperative (relay-assisted) VLC systems
• Adaptive OWC transmission schemes
• Channel coding for optical channels
• Multicarrier communication techniques for multipath indoor OWC channels
• Equalization and estimation for high speed VLC systems
• Multiple access and interference coordination for VLC systems
• Multiuser diversity techniques for OWC networks
• Cross-layer designs and channel-aware packet scheduling algorithms
• Topology control, routing and wavelength assignment algorithms
• Fault detection, avoidance and recovery strategies
• Advanced photonic components and sub-systems for OWC systems
• Proof-of-concept OWC systems
• Ultraviolet communication
• Airborne FSO systems, e.g., UAV, aircraft, satellite
• Vehicular VLC communication
• Underwater VLC communication
• Optical camera communication
• Integration of VLC with PLC, Ethernet and WiFi
• Hybrid MMW/FSO outdoor systems
