9:00 AM - 10:00 AM Plenary Talk

Keynote speech by Prof. Hari Balakrishnan, MIT
Title: Sense and Sensibility for Mobile Networks

Abstract: "Truly mobile" devices such as smartphones and pads/tablets are rapidly becoming the dominant mode of Internet access. People use these devices in a wide range of locations and movement conditions, often in quick succession. The richness and diversity of operating conditions poses a significant challenge for wireless network protocols, which must adapt to the conditions at hand. In this talk, it will be discussed how wireless network protocols can become smarter and operate more sensibly by incorporating external sensory informa- tion. The talk will make the case for a sensor-augmented protocol architecture for mobile networks, giving specific examples and outlining several open problems.

This talk is largely based on joint work with Lenin Ravindranath, Sam Madden, and Calvin Newport.

9:00 AM - 10:00 AM Plenary Talk
Session Chair: Philippe Jacquet (INRIA, France).

Keynote speech by Prof. Jean Walrand, UC Berkeley
Title: Distributed Wireless Protocols: A Review

Abstract: This talk reviews recent results on distributed wireless protocols and explains the main ideas behind their throughput and delay properties. Using a simple example, the intuition behind the throughput-optimality of CSMA for one-hop flows is explained. The method for analyzing the average delays is explained on that example. The interaction with congestion control is then discussed. The next step is the integration of routing with the MAC and Transport protocol. Recent results on delays are then discussed. The talk concludes with a discussion of open problems and research directions.

This talk is based on the work of many colleagues and in part on the recent monograph: Libin Jiang and Jean Walrand, "Scheduling and Congestion Control for Communication and Processing Networks" (Morgan-Claypool, 2010).
