June 5 - Geometric Sensor Network Workshop


Are you ready for the 2nd Workshop on Geometric Problems on Sensor Networks and Robots? 

Supported by an NSF Computing and Communication Foundations grant, computer scientists and mathematicians will gather at Stony Brook University for the . Taking place from June 5 - June 10, 2016, workshop attendees will discuss and solve geometric problems related to sensor networks or robotics. The event was organized by Peter Brass (CCNY, Jie Gao (Computer Science at Stony Brook University) and Joe Mitchell (Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Stony Brook University). The entire workshop will be taking place in the New Computer Science building at Stony Brook University. 

was held at IBM Research in Yorktown Heights, NY. Problems that were discussed at the 2015 event included "Pre-emptive Strategies for Smoothing in  Quad Tree like Structures"; "Placing Sensors to Minimize Uncertainty Regions; and "Placing Isolation Guards".  This year's attendees represent local, national, and global universities including University of Edinburgh, UC-Santa Barbara, New York University, Villanova University, USC, Tufts University, Lehman College, and Virginia Tech.
