Davis Auditorium, CEPSR
Organizers: Prof. Javad Ghaderi and Dr. Guy Grebla (Columbia University), Prof. Lei Ying (Arizona State University)

An informal one-day workshop focusing on a variety of networking topics, including wireless and wireline networks, social and power networks, and theoretical foundations. The workshop takes place prior to the ACM MobiHoc'15 Technical Program Committee (TPC) meeting and includes over 15 exciting talks by MobiHoc TPC members. Presentations include research results that were accepted/presented elsewhere as well as work in progress (papers submitted to ACM MobiHoc'15 are not presented).

The workshop is sponsored by the Electrical Engineering Department at Columbia University. Please register by Wednesday, February 25 (registration is free but required).
