**** Aims and Scope ****

Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) is the driving technology that will enable
the next generation of the distributed sensor systems, including
battery-less sensors, passive RFID, as well as IoT, 5G and M2M solutions.
Distributed WPT-enabled devices can be powered by harvesting energy from
the surroundings (for example electromagnetic energy), leading to a novel
communication systems networks paradigm, the Wirelessly Powered Systems and
Networks. The WPSN workshop aims at providing an interdisciplinary
reference forum focusing on the use of WPT as an enabler for improving the
efficiency of current distributed communication systems and networks.
Therefore, both tools and techniques to design (or improve) relevant
distributed operations using WPT, as well as results from the analysis of
data obtained through this enabler, are welcome in the workshop.

WPSN aims at engaging researchers working on WPT-enabled networking
protocols, algorithms and optimization; WPT-enabled communication methods,
tools and techniques; Far-/near-field WPT technologies for networks and

* Important Note: *
- An extended version of the best WPSN 2021 paper will be invited to appear
in a Special Issue of the MDPI Sensors journal (JCR/SJR Q1), without
publication fees.
- Accepted and presented papers will appear in IEEE Xplore and all major
publication indexes (WoS, Scopus, etc).
