Things to Do in Berkeley


BEARS 2004

This workshop celebrates the new home of the Wireless Foundations Center in the second floor of Cory Hall. We are happy to announce five talks by leading experts in the field. A poster session, combined with an extended catered lunch, will feature some of the most recent results of our graduate students, hopefully leading to many stimulating discussions. We are looking forward to seeing you at the workshop!
