We would like to give to the 'Battle of the Mesh' the flavor of 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 find this bunch of crazy folks gathering for the Wireless Battle of the Mesh V10 very interesting. This event is also an opportunity to meet developers from the most popular open source mesh protocol implementations ([[http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~jch/software/babel/|Babel]], [[http://www.open-mesh.org|B.A.T.M.A.N.]] L3 and L2, [[http://www.bmx6.net|BMX6]], [[http://open80211s.org/|IEEE 802.11s]], [[http://olsr.org|OLSR]]) and watch their ideas compete. If you have implemented an interesting mesh protocol capable of running on !OpenWrt Chaos Calmer (14.07) you can take part in the tournament too.

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. We will have fun, that's for sure.

Meet the developers from the most popular open source mesh protocol implementations ([[http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~jch/software/babel/|Babel]], [[http://www.open-mesh.org|B.A.T.M.A.N.]] L3 and L2, [[http://www.bmx6.net|BMX6]], [[http://open80211s.org/|IEEE 802.11s]], [[http://olsr.org|OLSR]] , etc.) and watch their ideas compete.

== Registration ==

The event is '''free of charge''' and '''registration is optional'''.

But it makes the organisation much easier if you tell us in advance that you plan to come.

Please send a mail to mailto:v10@battlemesh.org?subject=Registration that looks somewhat like this:

{{{

Name and/or Nick

Accommodation Package: [Yes/No]

T-Shirt Size: [S/M/L/none]

Other details you want to share: (e.g. community, country, URLs, twitter handle, dietary restrictions, ...)

}}}

We will answer with payment instructions for the accommodation package to those that are interested in one.



== Travel Scholarships ==

Thanks to our sponsors we will be able to offer a few travel scholarships (flight tickets) for non-EU residents.

The application deadline (2017-03-31) has passed, and the organizers have decided to split the scholarship between three applicants from Brazil, Cameroon and Ecuador. Looking forward to meeting you in Vienna!

{{{#!wiki comment/dotted
If you want to apply for a travel scholarship (compensating the costs of a long distance flight to Vienna and back) please explicitly tell us so in the registration mail.
We will then ask you to '''prepare a short video message''' in which you are giving a brief introduction to yourself and your interests:

 * Where are you from?
 * Why would you like to attend Battlemesh?
 * What impact in your local environment do you expect from your participation?
 * Would you be able to attend without the travel scholarship?

Send a link to your video to the organizers' mailing list, v10@battlemesh.org.

'''Application Deadline:''' The scholarship application window closes on March 31, 2017, so that we can confirm successful applications well ahead of the travel. Make sure to contact the organizers in time!
}}}

== Travel Information ==
You can reach Vienna via international travel:
 * by plane to [[https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/62823673|Vienna International Airport]] (IATA code VIE), http://viennaairport.com/
 * by train or night train to [[https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1839787470|Wien Hauptbahnhof]], the city's central station,
 * by bus to, e.g., [[https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/227115468|Vienna International Bus terminal]],
 * by car or motorcycle. If you plan to use highways ("Autobahn" and "Schnellstraße"), you will need to pay the [[http://www.vignette.at/maut/vignette|highway toll]]. It's probably best to park in a parking deck at the perimeter of the city (see e.g. [[http://www.parken.at/|these]]) and then use public transport to get into the city.

(Some travel organizations might route you via Bratislava in Slovakia which is ~50km from Vienna, and well-connected by bus and train).

A single fare in Vienna's public transportation system costs 2.20 Euro and entitles you to a loop-free, single-direction, one-way trip including changing lines (city train, metro, tramway, bus). Note that the airport is located outside of the city, so the fare is twice that!

There's also a full-week ticket for 16.20 Euro, see the [[https://shop.wienerlinien.at/index.php/product/7/show/0/0/0/0|transport company's web page]].

== Accommodation ==

For those of you who are looking for a convenient and low cost accommodation option: we have made block reservation in a nice hostel 10-15min walking distance from the Museum.

http://www.oejhv.at/index.php?id=148&L=1

[[https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/121143147#map=19/48.20517/16.34746|Address: Myrthengasse 7, 1070 Wien]]

The packages include '''6 nights in a four-bed room incl. breakfast for €100'''.

Follow the simple instructions in the registration section below and we will email you back the payment instructions.

--(The '''reservation expires on 8th of May''', all individual payments must be confirmed until that date.)--

'''Update: a handful of accommodation packages are still available'''

Send your requests to v10@battlemes.org. First come, first served.

Of course, the accommodation package is not compulsory. You can also find your own bed and food supply yourself during the event if you wish to do so. There are a number of hostel and hotels available, but keep in mind that they tend to be rather booked during summer.

=== Alternative Accommodation Information ===

A slightly more modern but more distant hostel:

https://www.wombats-hostels.com

Wombats has been quality tested by the recon mission team - but they would not let us make a large block reservation. Individual bookings should be possible though. And its a nice location, right next to Naschmarkt (street markets and delis).

BattleMeshV10 - Main Page


Update: a handful of accommodation packages are still available - should you spontaneously decide to join :)

http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV10#Accommodation


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. We will have fun, that's for sure.

Meet the developers from the most popular open source mesh protocol implementations (Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N. L3 and L2, BMX6, IEEE 802.11s, OLSR , etc.) and watch their ideas compete.

When

The event takes place between June 05 - 11.

Where

Volkskundemuseum - The Austrian Museum of Folk Life And Folk Art

Address: 1080 Vienna, Laudongasse 15-19

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 during springtime.

The metalab - a very active local hackerspace - is only 5 minutes away.

Participants

We try to keep this list of signed up participants up to date:

http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV10/Participants

What

In brief: We will deploy a wireless mesh network all over the place, run different routing protocols on top of it, perform some tests and see which routing protocol behaves better. (More Infos about the firmware: BattleMeshV10/Firmware)

Testbed Experiments

The discussion on the experiments and testbed setups is mainly happening on the mailing list.

Please help us document proposals and decisions in this pad, so others can follow easily:

Github repository

Battlemesh github repository Here you can find the wibed testbed platform, battlemesh packages (a set of OpenWRT packages to be used at the WBM events), and an OpenWRT mirror.

Announcement

This page contains the official Announcement: BattleMeshV10/Announcement

Impressions from previous Battlemesh events

Registration

The event is free of charge and registration is optional.

But it makes the organisation much easier if you tell us in advance that you plan to come.

Please send a mail to mailto:v10@battlemesh.org?subject=Registration that looks somewhat like this:

Name and/or Nick

Accommodation Package: [Yes/No]

T-Shirt Size: [S/M/L/none]

Other details you want to share: (e.g. community, country, URLs, twitter handle, dietary restrictions, ...)

We will answer with payment instructions for the accommodation package to those that are interested in one.

Travel Scholarships

Thanks to our sponsors we will be able to offer a few travel scholarships (flight tickets) for non-EU residents.

The application deadline (2017-03-31) has passed, and the organizers have decided to split the scholarship between three applicants from Brazil, Cameroon and Ecuador. Looking forward to meeting you in Vienna!

Travel Information

You can reach Vienna via international travel:

(Some travel organizations might route you via Bratislava in Slovakia which is ~50km from Vienna, and well-connected by bus and train).

A single fare in Vienna's public transportation system costs 2.20 Euro and entitles you to a loop-free, single-direction, one-way trip including changing lines (city train, metro, tramway, bus). Note that the airport is located outside of the city, so the fare is twice that!

There's also a full-week ticket for 16.20 Euro, see the transport company's web page.

Accommodation

For those of you who are looking for a convenient and low cost accommodation option: we have made block reservation in a nice hostel 10-15min walking distance from the Museum.

http://www.oejhv.at/index.php?id=148&L=1

Address: Myrthengasse 7, 1070 Wien

The packages include 6 nights in a four-bed room incl. breakfast for €100.

Follow the simple instructions in the registration section below and we will email you back the payment instructions.

The reservation expires on 8th of May, all individual payments must be confirmed until that date.

Update: a handful of accommodation packages are still available

Send your requests to v10@battlemes.org. First come, first served.

Hostel Outside Hostel Counter Hostel Rooms Overview

Of course, the accommodation package is not compulsory. You can also find your own bed and food supply yourself during the event if you wish to do so. There are a number of hostel and hotels available, but keep in mind that they tend to be rather booked during summer.

Alternative Accommodation Information

A slightly more modern but more distant hostel:

https://www.wombats-hostels.com

Wombats has been quality tested by the recon mission team - but they would not let us make a large block reservation. Individual bookings should be possible though. And its a nice location, right next to Naschmarkt (street markets and delis).
