We are working to host the 10th edition of Wireless Battle of the Mesh (WBMv10) in Vienna, Austria. Relevant information is added to this wiki page and sub-pages as we go. Feel invited to contribute, too!

Current Status


The reconnaissance mission will visit Vienna from Nov 9 to Nov 12, 2016. We organize a venue and check out possible accommodation options until then. If you have good ideas for where in Vienna WBMv10 should take place (and, ideally, contacts to those places), please let us know!


We have a Doodle for the recon mission (Oct 19 - Nov 12 timeframe).


Nothing is decided yet! At the first pre-reconnaissance meeting, the mentor team listed their wishes, suggestions, and requirements for WBM, based on their experience with earlier editions. We are working on checking possible venues and accommodation now to make Vienna a realistic candidate location.

Pre-Recon Meeting #1, 2016-08-23, 15:00

Note: I'm not sure we may publish the meeting minutes in full, so I'll just quote the things that are obviously publishable.

  • requirements -- 80-100 people, hack- and talk room + workshop room, non profit low budget community organized event
  • dates will be decided through a doodle, date candidates will be selected and doodle will be started at the recon event. Event should happen around April/May 2017
  • discussed task list briefly - as always, this is a community event so we want remote people to help too.
  • entity to handle financial things (invoices, accommodation, etc) is still to be found
  • we would like to organize hotel group booking as the previous years

Next steps:

  • We will have a recon mission end of october/beginning of november - I will send a doodle to decide on the date. The recon team will go to Vienna and check out venues, hotels, and nice places. :)
  • If you know any other activists, hackers, communities or hackerspaces, please connect them up with us so we can possibly meet them too!
  • Vienna crew will check out venues and locations and ask for financial handling organizations
