BattleMeshV10

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 (Babel, B.A.T.M.A.N. L3 and L2, BMX6, IEEE 802.11s, OLSR) and watch their ideas compete.

When

The event takes place between June 05 and June 11, 2017.

Where

Vienna, Austria

Volkskundemuseum - The Austrian Museum of Folk Life And Folk Art

Address: 1080 Vienna, Laudongasse 15-19

This is an old musuem with an adjacent, quiet park area in the city center. Inside we can use one big lecture hall with more than 90 seats, and two smaller hacking areas right next to it. Also, the local hackspace Metalab is located nearby (see map).

Accommodation and Food Supply

For those of you who are looking for a convenient and low cost accommodation option: We have made block reservation for 40 people in a nice hostel 10-15min walking distance from the Museum.

Participant Registration and Fee

Since the event is free of charge and open for all registration is optional (unless you're interested in the accommodation package). But it makes the organisation much easier if you tell us in advance that you plan to come.

Please send a mail to v10@battlemesh.org that looks like this:

Subject: Registration

Name or Nick = ..... Interested in accommodation package = Yes/No T-Shirt Size = S/M/L/none Other details you want to share about you: .......... (e.g. countries, community affiliation, URLs, dietary restrictions)

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.

More accommodation tips: Wombats, etc MISSING

Directions

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)

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.
