Athens Wireless Summit 2015
Call for Participation / Talks

Dear All,

If you are involved in a community network, if you have deployed wireless
or fiber technology for a community network, if you love the commons, if
you are from the academia running a wireless or community related testbed,
then this call is for you!  We are pleased to announce that Athens Wireless
Metropolitan Network (AWMN) is organizing a two day event titled «Athens
Wireless Summit 2015». It will take place during the weekend of the 19th
and 20th of September 2015 at Impact Hub Athens Greece. It would be our
pleasure to have you there and we encourage you to participate with a talk
or a workshop or both.

What is it?

The Athens Wireless Summit 2015 is a two day event which aims to bring
people together, from the academia, the world of commons, open source and
wireless networks communities and all those involved or interested in
wireless network technologies, in order to meet with each other, exchange
views and experiences, explore possibilities for cooperation and synergies
and to promote the benefits of developing modern telecommunication
infrastructure as an enhancement factor for a region.

We aspire to include presentations, discussions, workshops, social events
and exhibitions of wireless network technologies, the development of
network infrastructure and shared services, the promotion of the social
character on developing community networks by citizens for citizens as well
as developing networks of active people around these; with examples like
the cooperation structures that exist or can be developed between these
communities in Greece and abroad.

Where and When

The event will take place on Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th of
September 2015 at Impact Hub, Karaiskaki 28 in Athens. The entire building
of Impact Hub will be available for the two day event. This gives us the
opportunity to schedule both seminars and workshops in parallel flows. For
more information about Impact Hub, please visit their site at:
Format and content of the talks
We aspire to keep a balance between community networks, academia, everyday
real community applications and related technology subjects. Subjects may
be anything related to community networks ranging from applications,
wireless technology, mesh protocols, testbeds, other routing protocols,
social related subjects, IoT, related research subjects and anything that
will make those two days productive, fun and beneficial to all. Related
Talks or Workshops will be grouped together and be placed on the schedule
in order to have cohesion of subjects and help participants choose their
tracks. Finally we welcome proposals of anything you think may be of
interest to community network enthusiasts. The format can be of any kind,
for example a presentation, talk, discussion, debate, practical workshop,
or film screening. The suggested duration for talks is 20 minutes where
workshops can be arranged to take anything up to 1 hour depending on slot
and space availability.

Lightening talks
Lightening talks are shorter talks which can be submitted after the main
workshops/talks deadline, to give everybody the opportunity to present
their project/idea. Each lightening talk will be 7 minutes long, followed
by 3 minutes of questions. Projector slides can be submitted in EPS or PDF
format to: aws-submissions at awmn.net
