The 1st Workshop on Optical Wireless Communication for Smart City (1st OWC2) will be held at Nagoya, Japan, December 17th-18th, 2019. The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum for exchange of the latest results related to OWC, which refers to general optical wireless communication including infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV), and visible light communications (VLC), toward the realization of "Smart City". Papers describing original results in all aspects of OWC are invited. Topics include, but are not limited to:

Channel modeling, modulation, coding, and equalization

Channel capacity analysis and diversity techniques

Optical MIMO, WDM, and color-frequency modulation

Energy efficiency and dimming issues of simultaneous illumination and communication using VLC

Mobility and robustness issues in optical small cells (attocells)

Multiuser techniques, optical CDMA, and optical OFDMA

Access, scheduling and interference mitigation for multiuser OWC

Protocols, architecture, and PHY/MAC cross-layer design for multiuser OWC

Multi-tier systems integrating OWC and RF for 5G and future communication systems

Optoelectronic transmitter and receiver design for indoors and outdoors OWC

Experimental demonstrations, tests, and performance characterizations of devices and components for OWC
