Hi Battlemeshers,

Thank you once again for joining us in Berlin! After a successful v11
edition, colocated with FFWCW2018 in what we called Wireless Meshup (Mesh
is in The Air), we are starting to prepare v12 edition!

At our Battlemesh Community meeting, we have discussed future locations for
WBM. We had some candidates:
- Bracciano (Italy) proposed by Clauz
- Madurai (India) proposed by Senthil Kumar
- Brasil proposed by Eduardo Coelho and Débora Leal
- Athens (Greece) proposed by Panos (although not 100% sure).

Following the discussion of this year and also last year, where the
possibility to move WBM outside Europe was also raised, we believe that WBM
should remain (moving) within Europe and that we should encourage
communities outside Europe to create similar events, pushing forward local
communities. We are happy to help you with that process! @Senthil maybe you
could catch up with Internet Society Comunity Networks SIG council (
http://cnsig.info/) to ask about the global summit and join the discussion
there, it could be a good idea!. @Débora, @Eduardo we would suggest you
contact Nicolás Echániz <nicoechaniz at altermundi.net> to get more
information on Regional Meeting in Latin America (LAC).

In the meanwhile, due to some life changes, Clauz will not be able to host
the event in Italy and Panos was not sure about hosting the event when we
met in Berlin (if you have any news on this proposal please update us!). We
are now making a call for WBMv12 Location Proposals.

If you are reading this e-mail and would like to host WBMv12, please send
us an e-mail with the following information:

* Describe your proposed location (city, venue)
 * Introduce yourself and your team or community
 * Tell us about the facilities (rooms, internet access), accommodation
options (expected package price), hackerspaces, etc
 * Tell us about travel options, e.g. nearest international airport, bus,
or train
 * Do you plan to have organized food? Are there restaurants nearby, etc?
 * What kind of social events could be organized?
 * Preferred times - people seem quite happy with the time of the event
(April - June), we need to make sure it does not overlap with other
important events

Please follow up with your proposals by October 14th. After reviewing all
the possible locations, the mentor team, composed by Albert, Claudio, Paul
and myself - will set up a recon visit and announce the final decision.

Best Regards,
Filipe Teixeira
