The event aims to bring together people from across the globe who are interested in community networks, including wireless mesh network technologies, fiber infrastructure, Do-It-Yourself Internet Access Providers, and more generally how to create and maintain a thriving community of people involved in building their own networks.

We envision 7 days full of expert presentations, practical workshops, late-night hacking sessions, and fruitful discussions: whether you are a mesh networking enthusiast, community networking activist, protocol developer, or have an interest in networking in general, come and join us!

This year, we would like to expand the topics beyond wireless, with a dual focus on fiber and community. But you will probably also meet 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.

Important dates

The event takes place from 2019-07-08 to 2019-07-14.

Deadline for accommodation packages: first-come first-serve

Deadline for travel grants: May 10th

Deadline for event proposal: May 10th

Where

Le 6B, 6-10 quai de Seine, 93200 Saint-Denis, France (very close to Paris).

OpenstreetMap Website

The location is at a 5-10 minutes walk from the Saint-Denis railway station on the RER D line or Train , easily accessible from the center of Paris. Make sure to buy a ticket for zone 3.

The closest airports are Paris Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly, both 45 minutes away by public transportation. Another option is the Paris Beauvais airport, located 2h15 away from the event by public transportation.

What

In brief: we will have organized talks, workshops and discussion panels on community networks and wireless mesh networks (see Call for Participation). There will also be more informal activities: cooperative hacking, self-organized projects, and (we hope) delightful conversations!

In addition, there may be a self-organized wireless mesh network, running different routing protocols to compare them. Please coordinate directly on the battlemesh mailing list to make that happen.

How to register

The event itself is free of charge and open for all! However, it makes the organisation much easier if you tell us in advance that you plan to come.

For those of you who are looking for a convenient and low cost accommodation option: we negotiated a special group reservation for 24 people. The Hostel is called "Beautiful Belleville" and is located 30 minutes away from the event venue by train. The address is 12 rue de l’atlas 75019 PARIS.

Two types of all-in accommodation packages are available. They both include 6 nights (from the 8th to the 14th of July), breakfast, bedsheets and towels.

Package 1 in 4-beds rooms: 201 euros

Package 2 in 2-beds rooms: 213 euros

Deadline: no deadline, it's first-come first-serve!

How to register for accommodation: contact us by email (v12 at battlemesh dot org) with the package you want, and preference (mixed / non-mixed / same room as another person). We will confirm to you whether there are rooms left, and then send you an invoice with payment instructions.

Travel Scholarships

Thanks to our sponsors, we have the opportunity to provide some Travel Scholarships to cover the costs of a long distance flight to Paris and back. If you want to apply, please explicitly tell us so in the registration email. Please also provide the location from which you will be coming from, and an estimation of the travel costs (flight to Paris and back).

We will then ask you to prepare a short video message in which you are giving a brief introduction to yourself and your interests.

DEADLINE: MAY 10TH

Call for participation

We invite participants to propose workshops, talks or panel discussions relating to network infrastructure in general, how it can be built and operated as a common, and how to sustain a community around networking.

We welcome contributions that broadly address these questions from any of several perspectives: technical, organisational, economical, regulatory, juridical, political.  Example topics:
