 Seventh Workshop on Realistic models for Algorithms in Wireless
Networks (WRAWN)
       29 July 2016, Chicago, Illinois, co-located with PODC 2016
              http://wrawn.ru.is

Computation using wireless connections is becoming more common and
more important. The need for smart algorithms that efficiently solve
useful problems in this setting, therefore, has never been more
pressing.

As a result, in recent years there has been a rapid growth of the
number and type of abstractions for describing wireless communication.
Some abstractions capture the properties of signal fading, topology
changes, and message reliability; some are synchronous while others
capture timing uncertainty; some are tightly intertwined with the
physics of electromagnetic radiation while others hide all such
details.

This year's WRAWN workshop focuses on organizing and better
understanding these abstractions. Featuring a combination of invited
theory and systems talks, both from within and outside the distributed
algorithms community, its goal is to survey the current state of the
art in wireless network modeling, while also seeking to understand the
next big opportunities in this line of research.

Invited speakers for this year's workshop include:

  R. Srikant, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  Seth Gilbert, National University of Singapore
  Ouri Wolfson, University of Illinois at Chicago
  Nancy Lynch, MIT
  Nitin Vaidya, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  Calvin Newport, Georgetown University


Workshop Organizers:
 Magnus M. Halldorsson, Reykjavik University
 Calvin Newport, Georgetown University
