(Dreadfully sorry for x-posting. You might receive multiple copies of
this mail. But the deadline is approaching rapidly. I'd rather annoy
some individuals by x-posting than exclude many. The summit really is
a super cool chance for all of us and all who believe in self-governed
The wireless summit (www.wirelesssummit.org, "IS4CWN") is the only
truly international event where community wireless networks from every
continent of this earth (except for maybe Antarctica) come together
every couple of years. Some have referred to the IS4CWNs as the "UN of
community wireless networks" . More details below.
The last one took place in Vienna in 2010, this time it is going to
take place in Barcelona.
Here is the current call for proposals. Please re-tweet and
re-distribute this mail in your respective communities and mailing
Thanks very much.
PS: for the academics amongst us: the conference is just before the
IEEE WiMob 2012 conference
(http://conferences.computer.org/wimob2012/). It might make sense to
piggyback the that one too (and enjoy beautiful Barcelona a bit longer

CALL FOR PROPOSALS — Deadline May 31, 2012.
International Summit for Community Wireless Networks
October 4-7, 2012
The International Summit for Community Wireless Networks (IS4CWN)
brings together leading technology experts, policy analysts,
on-the-ground specialists, and university researchers working on
state-of-the-art community broadband projects. Since the first Summit
in 2004, tens of thousands of community and municipal broadband
networks have been deployed around the globe. The 2012 IS4CWN in
Barcelona, Spain, offers panelists the opportunity to shape the
direction of this thriving global movement.
Arab Spring and the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya have
brought the importance of mesh wireless to the forefront of global
political consciousness. As a result, we have seen an explosion in the
development of and enthusiasm for community networks and mobile mesh.
2012 is a critical year to catalyze the explosion of community
networking organizations and create shared technology, policy, and
public education goals. Over the course of the Summit, the meetings
and workshops at IS4CWN help participants formulate strategic plans,
implement new development roadmaps, and coordinate implementation and
Interested presenters should propose panels and workshops focusing on
the three themes for the Summit: technology, policy, and
implementation. Proposals can include demonstrations of software
innovation, success stories of network deployment, presentations of
ongoing research and discussion of municipal and governmental
collaboration on both the national and transnational levels, or
additional related topics. Panelists are encouraged to convene panels
that look at specific issues from multiple angles and perspectives.
Past panels can be reviewed at http://wirelesssummit.org.
Panel ideas will be accepted on a rolling basis and must be received
no later than May 31, 2012. Please send panel proposals of 250 words
or less to: coordination at wirelesssummit.org.
Travel stipends are available for speakers with financial need. If you
would like to request travel support, please be sure to mention so in
your proposal -- panels are accepted on a need-blind basis. As ever,
please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
