Wireless Battle Mesh v6 - Call for Talks Announcement

Any progress, idea, project, etc. to be presented to the Community
Networks? Lucky you! Wireless Battle Mesh v6 (WBMv6) is at hand and
it's time to bring together the agenda. Following the approach of
arranging the agenda beforehand started in v4 and continued in v5, we
open the proposals submission period.



Types of Talks

Whatever suits you the best: presentation, workshop, panel, demo, etc.


Despite the WBM running routing protocols in its veins, we also
welcome proposals unrelated to routing protocols as long as you think
they are of the interest to Community Networks enthusiasts. Obviously,
proposals related to routing protocols have higher priority in case of
an excess of proposals.

Previous years' agenda also should be able to provide some insights:


To allow an efficient handling of your submission, please provide the
following information and send them in form of an email to the
Contacts section e-mail address:

    your name
    the type of your slot (talk/workshop/panel discussion/lightening talk)
    your topic headline
    your topic description which can brief (does not need to exceed a
couple of lines) but should provide a reasonable summary of your talk
    the dates of your stay at the event + (optional) preferred day for your slot
    length of the slot if you wish to do a workshop (all other slots
will be limited to one hour)


We kindly request to be respectful with the deadlines for the good of all.

Submissions are accepted until and including the 1st of April. The
final program will be made available in the aforementioned wiki during
the first week of April. Any disagreement with the proposed final
program must be discussed in the WBM mailing list.

Lighting Talks

Everyone missing the submission deadline still has the opportunity to
apply for a lighting talk slot. Lighting talk slots are 7 minutes
long, with 3 extra minutes for questions and comments. Slides must be
submitted to the Contacts section e-mail address in form of PDF file.
Slots will be allocated according to the reception sequence.
Submission period starts on the 15th of April at 9:00


Please, send your proposals or specific questions at:
submissions at battlemesh.org For general questions use the WBM mailing
list (see below)

About the Wireless Battle Mesh

The Wireless Battle of the Mesh is an event that aims at bringing
together people from across Europe to test the performance of
different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks, like Babel,
B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX6, OLSR, 802.11s and Static Routing.

It is a tournament with a social character. If you are a mesh
networking enthusiast, community networking activist, or have an
interest in mesh networks you might want to check this out !

The goal of the Wireless Battle Mesh events is to set-up hands-on
testbed for each available mesh routing protocol with a standard test
procedure for the different mesh networks. During the different WBM
events, similar hardware and software configuration will be used based
on the OpenWRT Board-Support-Package and packages for each protocol
implementation. The WBM events are also a great opportunity to develop
testing tools for PHY/MAC radio layers (drivers, scripts and PHY
analyzers) .
