Indo-US Advanced Summer School on Systems and Networks



The Track 1 is a series of lectures  on Distributed Wireless Network Systems such as Multihop networks, wireless mesh networks, and wireless ad hoc networks.

In this track, the participants will be trained on advanced prototypes such as CalNode, CalMesh, and CalRadio developed by the UCSD Division of CalIt2.

Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and UCSD-CalIT2, through CalSysNet research group, sponsor the Indo-US Advanced Summer School on Systems and Networks during June 18th, 2009—July 18th, 2009. As a first of its kind activity in the collaboration between UCSD and Indian Institutions of Technology, a series of joint collaboration discussions between the faculties and students of both countries is planned as part of this event.
