MadCom: New Wireless Communication Paradigms for the Internet of Things


For the last two decades radio frequency (RF) has been at the core of the revolution enabling wireless communication for the Internet of Things (IoT). But RF communication has been a victim of its own success, the ever increasing number of devices joining the IoT are saturating the RF bandwidth. We need alternative ways to exploit RF technology and to use other means to transmit data wirelessly. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities to discuss and explore novel wireless communication technologies for the IoT.


The workshop will consist of a keynote, presentations of short papers and an open discussion session. The short papers can be of a technical nature, presenting preliminary technical results, or position papers presenting a thought-provoking view regarding methods or applications for novel wireless communication technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • backscatter communication
  • visible light communication
  • magnetic induction communication
  • infrared communication
  • laser communication
  • camera-based communication
  • thermal-based communication
  • acoustic communication
  • applications for novel wireless communication methods
  • new platforms
  • theoretical models
  • new communication methods with RF signals
  • new network stacks (MAC, Routing) for novel communication technologies
