The next 'Wireless Battle of the Mesh' will take place from Mon 5th - Sun 11th of June in the Austrian Museum of Folk Life And Folk Art ( in Vienna.

The event aims to bring together all people from across the globe that are interested in wireless mesh network technologies and community networks in general. 6 days full of expert presentations, late night hacking sessions, measurement campaigns, protocol discussions, and a whole lotta other meshy things.

So if you are a mesh networking enthusiast, community networking activist, or have an interest in mesh networks in general, you have to check this out!

Continuously updated information about the event:


We are located in the upper floor of very nice historical museum in the middle of Vienna. One large conference room and two adjacent hacking areas are at our full disposal there. The whole area offers nice atmosphere and plenty of room to deploy measurement testbeds. The adjacent park is a beautiful analog distraction, especially in this time of the year. The metalab - a very active local hackerspace - is only 5 minutes away.
