It might well be that wireless networking recently made the transition
from an ubiquitous networking technology to the dominant networking
technology, at least from the viewpoint of end-user devices.  Part of
this trend is the use of wireless in automobiles, and this workshop
will look at Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE),
also know as IEEE 802.11p.  In addition, the bufferbloat problem [1]
is starting to focus on the more difficult wireless environment, and to
that end, this workshop will discuss FQ/Codel [2] integration, testing,
and development.  As usual, the workshop will encompass the full 802.11
stack, not just the kernel portions, and therefore wpa_supplicant [3]
will also be on the agenda.

Please join us for a timely and important discussion [4]!

KS [5] will be held October 31-November 1 and LPC [6] will be held
November 1-4, both in Santa Fe, New Mexico, US.
