Winter School on Underwater Network Simulations

We are delighted to announce the first Winter School on Underwater Network Simulations (UNWiS).

The winter school will take place in late January 2023 in Padova, Italy, and is organized by the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova and Wireless and More srl. UNWiS will last one week and will focus on the DESERT Underwater network simulation and experimentation framework. Every day will be split into two parts, a theoretical part where the students will attend frontal lessons to learn the concepts and procedures to perform network simulations and develop software modules, and an experimental part where the student will be required to implement the code, run simulation experiments and analyze the results.
