Call for Talks/Presentation

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 BattleMeshV10 in Vienna.

The interface for submitters is available at: cfp.battlemesh.org

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 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 Wireless Battlemesh (WBM) 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 year's Battlemesh will take place between June 5 and 11 in Vienna, Austria.


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 enthusiasts.

They may take any format, for example a presentation, talk, discussion, debate, practical workshop, or film screening. The suggested length for talks is one hour (40 minutes talk, 10 minutes questions and 10 minutes break/buffer).

To get an idea of the kinds of talks and workshops at the previous events, see http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV9/Agenda, http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV8/Agenda, http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV7/Agenda, http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV6/Agenda and http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV5/Agenda.

Lightning talks

Lightning 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 lightning 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 we are using frab as conference management software. Please create an account under https://cfp.battlemesh.org/en/wbm10/cfp/session/new and enter your presentation. If you have any problems contact submissions@battlemesh.org. The best is to have the following points at hand when entering your proposal.


The deadline for proposals is May 08, 2017.
