The paper is to present OSERENA "Optimized SchEduling RoutEr Node Activity", a distributed coloring algorithm optimized for dense wireless networks. Network density has an extremely reduced impact on the size of the messages exchanged to color the network. Furthermore, the number of colors used to color the network is not impacted by this optimization. The authors describe in this paper, the properties of the algorithm and prove its correctness and termination. Simulation results point out the considerable gains in bandwidth.
