[DFRI-listan] Mesh Networking

Hi All,

I thought it was likely that some on this list would be interested in mesh networking. At the beginning of October there is the International Summit for Community Wireless Networks (IS4CWN) in Barcelona. The first summit in 2004 launched what is now called the community broadband movement and this year will bring together participants not just from projects in the US and the EU but panelists from the developing world who are interested in building and expanding community wireless networks in their own countries. Keynoters include Amelia Andersdotter, Swedish MEP, Sascha Meinrath from the Open Technology Institute and Aaron Kaplan from Funkfeuer.

IS4CWN 2012 will take place at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Barcelona, a university with an exceptionally high percentage of international students. UPC houses numerous projects funded under the European Union's Seventh Framework Program and Barcelona is also home toguifi.net, one of the largest community networks in the world, encompassing over 23,000 individual nodes.

The summit is a great mix of implementers of networks, community building, and policy. If you're interested in learning more check out http://wirelesssummit.org/.
