Instructor: Prathima Agrawal


Research Assistant: Pratap Simha Prasad


Class Schedule: Fridays 3PM

Classroom: 235 Broun Hall

Objective of this seminar series is to provide an open forum for faculty (ECE and CSSE), undergraduate and graduate students to become familiar with research in wireless communications and networking areas. Some of the topics covered in these seminars are:  a variety of wireless networks including cellular, local area, personal area networks, all-IP wireless networks, sensor and mobile ad hoc networks, vehicle-to-vehicle, and wireless mesh networks. Other attributes of networking such as mobility, security, cross-layer design, quality of service, protocol designs, etc. may be covered in these seminars.

The seminar series counts as a 1-credit course ELEC 7950.

The schedule for the seminars will be posted on the WEREC website.

Invitation: If you are interested in presenting a seminar during Fall 2006, please contact Agrawal or Pratap.
