The Fifth Nordic Workshop on System and Network Optimization for Wireless (SNOW) took place in Åre, Sweden in the beginning of April. More than 40 researchers from all over the Nordic region came together to discuss novel ideas and already used strategies for the Improvement of Wireless Networking starting from sensor monitoring and up to modern cellular issues.
All the discussions were held in friendly atmosphere with lots of coffee and traditional swedish cookies. Workshop lead for three days and was held as a compilation of the presentations and posters sessions. However, talks were followed by informal skiing events and delicious repasts.
