Wireless Networking for Moving Objects

Working Groups

Structure of WGs/SIGs

During the 4th MC meeting a decision on re-organization of working style has been taken. Due to low efficiency of WG/SIG operation MC decided to take ad-hoc approach driven by the current research topics. The result of these efforts is so-called “White Paper” representing up-to-date vision on every particular topic.
