BattleMeshV6 Agenda

Logistics

The talks / panel discussions / workshops are accompanied by a series of "social events" which aim to provide the basis for healthy discussions and relaxing moments between the hard working hours. For logistical reasons, most of these events require a preregistration. Please contact us to announce your interest at least 3 days prior to the event to facilitate a smooth organization.

For talks / panel discussions / workshops follow the instructions given at BattleMeshV6/CallForTalks

Rooms

Two big rooms are booked:

Small teaching rooms might be available and can be used, although regular university courses might take place in these rooms (especially Mo-Fr/during daytime). Please check and be polite.

Making additions or changing the agenda

Direct editing is restricted to foster a coordinated approach to setting up an agenda in order to accommodate the wishes of the greater community. Please contact the battlemesh mailing list if you wish to make a proposal for changing the agenda.

Slots duration

Speakers are requested to be respectful of the duration of the slots assigned. Questions, debates, etc. must take place in side the slots and must not exceede the finishing time under any circumstances.

Videos

Some folks spontaneously record some of the talks. Martin are collecting them. Contact him if you have any not yet made available.

Ninux Routing Architecture

Abstract: From 2003 to 2011 we run the Ninux Wireless Community network in Roma, in small scale and with private IPv4 addressing. Exchanging traffic with the Internet was done using NAT, and exploiting the user home ADSL lines. In 2011 we started to deploy a new Ninux network in Rome. Dual stack IPv4 and IPv6, and with BGP peerings to upstream providers. We present here our first attempt to define a routing architecture.

Community-Lab: A Community Networking Testbed for the Future Internet

Community-Lab (http://community-lab.net/) is a global testbed for the experimentation of network technologies and services for community networks which already integrates and extends Guifi.net, Funkfeuer and AWMN. It's sponsored by the CONFINE (http://confine-project.eu/) European project, which issues periodic Open Calls for participation. Community-Lab's software and documentation is released under Free licenses so anyone can contribute or setup theirown testbed. This talk will cover the latest technical achievements in Community-Lab.

CONFINE, Clommunity & OpenCall

Clommunity is a sister project of CONFINE aimed at exploring the cloud capabilities of Community Networks started on Jan 2013 and lasting 24 month. We will present the scenario and goals and report on the work done so far. We are very interested in gathering attendees' opinions and advise. We will also present the second Open Call of CONFINE. The Open Calls are a mean to integrate new partners in on-going projects. We would like to have you in the second Open Call of CONFINE (Autumn 2013) so will do our best to discuss ideas to facilitate participation in the call and attract project ideas that can help community networking to move forward..

Community Networks Panel

An open meeting between international wireless community network (WCN) members to discuss the following topics:
- local misconfigurations might have consequences on the whole network, so to which degree is possible to achieve the completely distributed management of a WCN?
- how are non-technically skilled people involved in communities? Who manages their nodes?
- are there any more or less formalized "topic groups" or teams, e.g. the "developers group", or the "communication team"?
- are collective decisions taken on a majority votation, consensus [*] or other basis in our communities? Are online tools such as liquid feedback used? Is it always possible to draw a line between who is in and who is out of the community? Which degree of horizontality is achievable in the Real World, where some people are involved more than other? Which is the importance and the role of trust? How can the decision process scale?
- having homogeneous hardware and software systems can help the expansion of a network? Which are the drawbacks?
- is network monitoring seen as an intrusion? Why or why not?
- automatic firmware updates: do they really work?
- International collaboration / coordination strategies. Is a Free Networks "federation" or some other formal meta-organization a good idea?
- WCN as part of the Internet. Where does each project stand (ASN/IP resources, accessibility, etc.)

Mitigation of Breaking Connections

A recurring problem of highly dynamic ad-hoc networks is the fact that connections break all the time. Some application can handle this, some cannot. In either case the load on the network is higher than it really needs to be because of the continuous connection re-establishments. Multi-Gateway enhancements, as implemented in OLSR v1, can mitigate a part of this problem. BRDP and MPTCP can be employed to further enhance to experience on such highly dynamic networks. This talk aims to discuss (at least) the multi-gateway enhancements and BRDP.

Version control with git

Most software communities use git to have their software under revision control. Understanding git helps in submitting patches to other projects and saves a lot of time. For this talk I can do something very easy or something more advanced depending on the people present at the moment.
