Madonna di Campiglio (TN, Italy) - Wednesday, January 21, 2004

The Conference has begun in a sunny winter scenario with the keynote speech by professor Mario Gerla and a panel discussion featuring industry and academia participants.

Tomorrow, the technical sessions will begin.

The place begins to crowd!

...so the conference staff moved from the bar to the reception desk.

The conference room wit some life in it

Here are the lucky people who passed the check-in at the Reception.

Hey, we're on the air!

People surfing freely in the 'Net (thanks to the WILMA Project and to CSI Piemonte)

Camera-ready talk

Mario Gerla's keynote speech has been streamed to a larger audience in Turin (Italy).

More online people

Actually, the laptop was open until a few milliseconds before the photo shot...

Host duties

Professor Roberto Battiti welcomes the conference attendees.

Not everything is Wireless

...nor is everything On-demand, or Network System.

In other words, not everything is WONS, and people still have to fight for the sake of sending video output to a projector.

Next time, we shall provide a wireless projector.
