INRIA Associate Team DAWN - Distributed Algorithms for Wireless Networks (2008-2011)

Participants : Sara Alouf, Eitan Altman, Konstantin Avrachenkov, Amar Azad.

Maestro has privileged collaborations with the Indian Institute of Science (IISC) at Bangalore, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research at Mumbai, and the University of Pennsylvania, through the Inria Associate Team “Dawn ” (an Inria program). Dawn stands for “Distributed Algorithms for Wireless Networks”. It was launched on January 1st, 2008.

Dawn involves three Inria project-teams teams (Maestro , the coordinator, Mescal and Trec ) and three foreign teams. The main foreign team is the IISc (Bangalore, India) with Prof. A. Kumar (coordinator), R. Sundaresan, V. Sharma and A Chokalingam. Two other foreign teams are TIFR Mumbay with V. Borkar (Tata Institute, Mumbai)f Pennsylvania with S. Sarkar.

Dawn focuses on “Emerging Strategies for Wireless Communication Networks”. More specifically, the project objectives are to model, analyze, optimize and invent protocols for both cellular as well as ad hoc wireless network.

Dawn was created in the perspective of creating a joint laboratory between Inria and IISc at Bangalore (see "Inedit" magazine No. 63. Bangalore: Managing connections on wireless networks). .
