Call for Papers

This workshop is expected to bring together academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent breakthroughs related to wireless energy harvesting communication networks (WEHCNs). Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:


  • Joint wireless information and power transfer in WEHCNs
  • Energy accumulation modeling and the associated network protocol design in WEHCNs
  • Cooperative and relay techniques in WEHCNs
  • Spectrum sensing and sharing in WEHCNs
  • Physical layer security of WEHCNs
  • Waveform design in WEHCNs
  • The application of emerging technologies (e.g., Massive MIMO) in WEHCNs
  • Interference exploitation and management in WEHCNs
  • Network economics (e.g., energy trading) of WEHCNs
  • Prototypes and testbeds of WEHCNs.


The workshop will feature a keynote speech as well as a panel discussion given by world-leading researchers in the field.
