Mobicom 2006

September 25-29, I am attending the ACM SIGMOBILE Mobicomm 2006 conference in Los Angeles. I am excited about this. It will be my first time attending an ACM conference. The Mobicomm conference is one of the leading conferences in the world on wireless networks. Some of the topics that will be presented there are: ad hoc networks, cellular networks, sensor networks, wireless LANs, and mesh networks. It will be a good opportunity for me to learn more about some of the other types of networks that I am not very familiar with. Also, it may give me some good ideas for future research topics.

I am a little nervous, at the same time, about attending. On Friday the 29th, I get to present at the VANET workshop. It will be the first time I get to present to this type of audience. Before this, all of my other presentations have been at school, but I am sure it will go well.

It will also be my first time to Los Angeles. I have been to CA to visit San Francisco, and I enjoyed that. It will be interesting to see what Los Angeles is like.

Michigan's Governor Race

If anyone is undecided on who they want to vote for in this Fall's election for Governor of the State of Michigan, I would recommend voting for Greg Creswell.

Book Chapter

I submitted a chapter to be published in the "Handbook on Mobile Ad Hoc and Pervasive Communications". I was glad to learn that the chapter I submitted on vehicular ad hoc networks was accepted for publication. That was the first time a attempted to submit a book chapter, so I was happy to learn that it was accepted.
