           Summer Readings on
Wireless, Ad-hoc, Mobility, Power, Energy…
              Why Wireless?
+   One of the top 3 fastest growing techonology
    areas wrt stock growth
+   Wireless broadband revenue will grow
    140%/year for the next 5 years
+   Gates: “Mobility will be the fastest growing MS
+   Mobicom ranks 5th on CiteSeer’s “Estimated
    Impact” above Sosp, Popl, Siggraph, Sigmod,
• Educate ourselves in the area
  – basic vocabulary, problems, areas of research,
    future directions
• Spark discussion, interest, research(?)

• We can’t afford to ignore wireless!!
• Typical 590 seminar:
  – Presenter signs up today
  – Reads the papers
  – Sends an e-mail 1 week before pointing out
    paper to be read
  – Presentation/Debate/Discussion
