Latest research results of the interdisciplinary and emerging field of molecular communications
The 5th edition of the Workshop on Molecular Communications will be held online on 11.November, 4pm-7pm due the pandemic.
New applications in medicine, such as "Smart Drug Delivery" and "Internet of Bio-NanoThings", require the communication between so-called nanomachines (e.g., nanorobots). Since nanomachines are typically micro/nano-sized and operate in liquid environments, conventional wireless communications using electromagnetic waves is not feasible or detrimental. However, a promising approach to enable information transmission in such a setup is to use molecules instead.
The Workshop on Molecular Communications is organized by Werner Haselmayr (Institute for Communications Engineering and RF-Systems) together with international colleagues. The workshop will deliver four keynotes on cutting-edge topics and one panel discussion on the future of the field.
