In this interactive response to the workshop, the invited panel will react to the day's presentations and discussions. The panel will present their views and engage the workshop participants in discussion of research accomplishments and future challenges in experimental wireless networking, and identify and discuss in depth specific topics of interest identified by the workshop participants.

**transport to the Turing lecture for 5:30pm arrival will be coordinated
