National Science Foundation (NSF) Workshop: Future Directions in Systems Research for Networked Sensing

Thur, May 26 and Fri, May 26, 2006

The workshop was sponsored by Dr. Kishan Baheti’s program under the NSF Division of Electrical & Communications Systems (ECS).

Professor Venkatesh Saligrama of the ECE Department is the Workshop Chair. The program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Boston University, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE).

NSF Workshop proceedings will be published in September 2006.
