This is the official call for talks and workshops of the Battlemesh v7.
This event is getting more and more relevancy with the past of the
years. Last WBM was partially sponsored by Intel and the University of
So I think it is a great opportunity to participate with any topic
matching the requirements.
[Battlemesh] BattleMesh v7 talk and workshop proposals now welcome!
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-Straße 93, 04229 Leipzig.
Format and topic of talks
Workshops or talks relating directly to open source mesh routing
protocols will be prioritised, but we welcome proposals of anything you
think may be of interest to mesh routing and community networking
They may take any format, for example a presentation, talk, discussion,
debate, practical workshop, or film showing. The suggested length for
talks is one hour (40 minutes talk, 10 minutes questions and 10 minutes
To get an idea of the kinds of talks and workshops at the previous
Lightening talks are shorter talks which can be submitted later than
the main workshops deadline, to allow everybody to have the opportunity
to present their project/idea. Each lightening talk will be 7 minutes
long followed by 3 minutes of questions. Projector slides can be
submitted before in PDF format to: submissions at battlemesh.org
