This month I start for the second time at the University of Guelph, this time for my Ph.D. degree. I am continuing to work under the same supervisor and hopefully continue along with similar research in the area of wireless mesh networks. Our lab ([PerWin](https://web.archive.org/web/20091226024940/http://www.cis.uoguelph.ca/~denko/main_research_areas.html)) is supposed to be getting a bunch of new equipment from a company in Toronto so I will finally be able to move away from simulation and into some practical experiments.
In a slightly related note, I am attending two wireless network conferences in Ontario in the upcoming weeks. At the end of September I am volunteering at the adhocnets 2009 conference in Niagara Falls. I am quite excited about one of the keynote speakers (Prof. Ian Akyildiz) who has written some excellent survey papers in the area. The same week I am attending the IEEE TIC STH conference at Ryerson University in Toronto. I am presenting a paper on cross layer scheduling and resource allocation in wireless mesh networks.
