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.

To get an idea of the kinds of talks and workshops at the previous
events, see http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV6/Agenda,
http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV5/Agenda and

Lightening talks

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


To allow an efficient handling of your proposal, please provide the
following information and send them by email to the email to the address

 * Your name
 * What format will it take (talk/workshop/panel discussion/lightening talk)
 * Your topic headline
 * Your topic description which can be 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 and (optional) preferred day for
your slot
 * The length of the slot if you wish to do a workshop (all other slots
will be limited to one hour)
 * Any requirements you need, for example, a projector.


The deadline for proposals is the 1st of May.
