Wireless Battle Mesh v6 - Call for Talks Announcement
(15th of April - 21st of April 2013, Aalborg, Denmark)
Any progress, idea, project, etc. to be presented to the Community Networks? Lucky you! Wireless Battle Mesh v6 (WBMv6) is at hand and it's time to bring together the agenda. Following the approach of arranging the agenda beforehand started in v4 and continued in v5, we open the proposals submission period.
Types of Talks
Whatever suits you the best: presentation, workshop, panel, demo, etc.
Despite the WBM running routing protocols in its veins, we also welcome proposals unrelated to routing protocols as long as you think they are of the interest to Community Networks enthusiasts. Obviously, proposals related to routing protocols have higher priority in case of an excess of proposals.
To allow an efficient handling of your submission, please provide the following information and send them in form of an email to the Contacts section e-mail address:
- your name
- the type of your slot (talk/workshop/panel discussion/lightening talk)
- your topic headline
- your topic description which can 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 + (optional) preferred day for your slot
- length of the slot if you wish to do a workshop (all other slots will be limited to one hour)
We kindly request to be respectful with the deadlines for the good of all.
Submissions are accepted until and including the 1st of April. The final program will be made available in the aforementioned wiki during the first week of April. Any disagreement with the proposed final program must be discussed in the WBM mailing list.
Everyone missing the submission deadline still has the opportunity to apply for a lighting talk slot. Lighting talk slots are 7 minutes long, with 3 extra minutes for questions and comments. Slides must be submitted to the Contacts section e-mail address in form of PDF file. Slots will be allocated according to the reception sequence. Submission period starts on the 15th of April at 9:00
Please, send your proposals or specific questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org For general questions use the WBM mailing list (see below)
About the Wireless Battle Mesh
The Wireless Battle of the Mesh is an event that aims at bringing together people from across Europe to test the performance of different routing protocols for ad-hoc networks, like Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N., BMX6, 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 Wireless Battle Mesh 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 Board-Support-Package 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) .
