Grid Open Online Course (WOOC), and physically at the Syracuse Center of
Excellence in Energy and Environmental Systems, Syracuse University,

There will be an introduction by Lee McKnight of Syracuse University and
Peter Wong of Tufts University followed by a brief statement of the state
of the Wireless Grids Innovation Testbeds (WiGiT).
First on the agenda will be a discussion led by Joe Treglia of our award
