Call for sponsored travels to Battlemesh v8 in Slovenia
are you interested in joining the battlemesh but don't know how if you can afford the travel since you don't live in Europe? We are currently in the process of securing funds to offer a few travel scholarships, and would like to invite you to send your application! As battlmesh is in the week before CCC camp in Germany, this is an excellent opportunity to be able to travel to both.
Travel scholarships are open to people not living in Europe. To apply, we would like to ask you to send a short video (not longer than two minutes) to describe your situation:
- 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?
- Will you continue to CCC camp? (Note that its no problem if you also
plan to go to CCC camp)?
Shoot a short video and upload it to one of the video sharing websites and send us a link. Note that if it is private, we need a direct link and/or password for it as well.
E-Mail your video to the local battlemesh team:
Battlemesh V8 local team <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The deadline for applications is the 3rd of July. Decisions will be made before 6th July.
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 WirelessBattleMesh (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 years Battlemesh will take place from 3rd - 9th August 2015 in Maribor, Slovenia at the Dom Obrambe Pekre, Bezjakova ulica 151, 2341 Limbuš.
