BattleMeshV10 - Main Page

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.

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).

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.

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)
