Do you have an idea or project related to mesh routing protocols? Are 
you involved in a community networking project that uses a mesh network? 
Are you aware of a related issue that you think should be discussed?

Your workshop or presentation proposal is welcomed to BattleMeshV7 Leipzig!

What is Battlemesh?

The Wireless Battle of the Mesh is an event that aims at bringing 
together people from across Europe and beyond to test the performance of 
different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks, like Babel, 
B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX, 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 WirelessBattleMesh 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 BoardSupportPackage 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) .

This years Battlemesh will take place from 12 - 18 May 2014 in Leipzig, 
Germany at the Sublab, Karl-Heine-Stra├če 93, 04229 Leipzig.
