Workshop on “Visible light for Broadband Communications: Current Research & Standardization” (March 25-26, 2021: Online)

March 25, 2021 - March 26, 2021

IIIT Delhi Center of Excellence on LiFi supported by India-EU ICT Standardisation Cooperation Project is organizing a workshop on “Visible light for Broadband Communications: Current Research & Standardization” on 25-26 March 2021 from 9:30 AM IST onwards.

The two-day workshop will feature invited speakers from academia, industry, start-ups, and government concerns, both from India and the EU. Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, the workshop will be held in a virtual-mode.


A Center of Excellence (CoE) on LiFi has been established in IIIT Delhi under the purview of the India-EU ICT Standardisation Cooperation Project. As a part of this project, the CoE will not only design relevant courses on LiFi, but will also facilitate capacity building by supporting research collaborations and exchange of experts between India and the EU. To kickstart the activities of the CoE, this workshop is being organized.

About the Workshop:

Visible Light Communication technology will be most useful in indoor environments as it will be able to provide large bandwidths. This will also be very useful for providing high bandwidth last mile connectivity in remote and rural areas.

This workshop will mainly focus on the requirements and challenges of deployment in such scenarios. The inputs gathered from the workshop will help in working out innovative solutions. The test bed will enable such innovations which can be contributed to standards. VLC has been proposed as Roadmap Item in TSDSI.
