The Wisconsin Wireless and NetworkinG Systems (WiNGS) Laboratory was established at UW-Madison in the summer of 2005.

Research in the WiNGS lab is conducted in the areas of networking and distributed systems with a primary focus on wireless and mobile networking. Research activities in the lab spans a diverse set of activities, ranging from algorithmic design and analysis, and systems building through functional prototypes.

A key emphasis of all of our projects has been that they get deployed in real and practical scenarios, sometimes in collaboration with various partners that allow us to understand various real constraints leading to more refined the solutions. The activities of this lab are generously supported at different times through funding from governmental agencies, such as the NSF, and many industrial partners.
