Hi,

Just to let you know that the submission deadline for the DIY networking
workshop in Florence has been extended to March 7th.

We have found also some funding to support the participation of 
hackers/artists/activists,
so if you would like to participate do not hesitate to submit a short 
paper ...

In Florence there is also a community wireless network 
(http://blog.ninux.org/tag/italy/)
and I am trying to organize something with the local people.

Call for papers

Interdisciplinary workshop on Do-It-Yourself networking
May 18-19th, Florence, Italy, co-located with Mobisys 2015
Web site: http://diynetworking.net/
Hosting conference: http://www.sigmobile.org/mobisys/2015/

Wireless technology enables today the creation of local offline 
networks, which can operate outside the public Internet. Even when the 
Internet is easily accessible, such local wireless networks form an 
interesting alternative, autonomous, option for communication, which 1) 
ensures that all connected devices are in de facto physical proximity, 
2) offers opportunities and novel capabilities for creative combinations 
of virtual and physical contact, 3) enables free, anonymous and easy 
access, without the need for pre-installed applications or any 
credentials, and 4) can create feelings of ownership and independence, 
and lead to the appropriation of the hybrid space in the long-run.

In other words, local wireless networks provide the technological means 
for more participatory processes, benefiting from the grassroots 
engagement of citizens in implementing the smart city vision through 
novel forms of social networking, crowd sourcing, and citizen science. 
But for these possibilities to be materialized there are many practical, 
social, political, and economic challenges that need to be addressed, 
and which require the involvement of researchers and practitioners from 
different fields and backgrounds.

This workshop wishes to build on a recent interdisciplinary Dagstuhl 
seminar on "Do-It-Yourself networking", http://www.dagstuhl.de/14042 , 
which brought together a highly diverse group of researchers, 
practitioners, and activists to reflect on related technological and 
social issues. We made a first step to bridge the communication gap 
between those that build the technology (computer scientists, engineers, 
and hackers) and those that understand better the complex urban 
environment where this technology will be deployed (social and political 
scientists, urban planners, designers, and artists), as described in our 
final report: http://diynetworking.net/dagstuhl_report_14042.pdf

The main objective of this workshop is to make one more step to bridge 
this gap in the engineering domain, beyond wishful thinking, and 
establish a series of similar workshops on the topic of DIY networking 
to be hosted every year in a different venue. So, in the 1st 
Interdisciplinary Workshop on DIY Networking at the Mobisys 2015 
Conference, we invite 1) technical contributions that render DIY 
networking technology easier to be understood and used by less 
technically savvy people, and 2) theoretical contributions regarding the 
various inherent trade-offs in the design of DIY networks, which can 
help to build common understandings of the relationships between 
engineering decisions, design constraints and requirements, policies, 
and social impacts.

The workshop will include a special interdisciplinary session, as an 
experiment, which will facilitate the participation of a more diverse 
audience than typically observed in engineering conferences like 
Mobisys. For this session, we will invite the presentation of working 
prototypes of mature DIY networking frameworks, novel application ideas 
by designers and social scientists, and short tutorials on important 
concepts such as power, privacy, self-organization, space, and 
community, in light of the application of such technology in urban 
settings.

For the technical programme, topics of interest include, but are not 
limited to:
- Previous or novel technical contributions in the area of DIY 
networking targeted for an interdisciplinary audience.
- Holistic design approaches (infrastructure, protocols, applications, 
deployment plans).
- User interfaces and usability both for administrators and users.
- Modelling and analysis of the trade-offs related to privacy, security, 
performance, and more.
- Social studies on the use of local networks operating outside the 
public Internet, like the recent example of Firechat in Hong Kong.
- Theoretical studies of the interdisciplinary challenges around the 
design and deployment of DIY networks.

For the special interdisciplinary session, we welcome the following 
types of contributions:
- Demos of working prototypes of DIY networking applications or systems.
- Posters or design mock-ups of imaginary applications.
- Accounts of real-life deployments and experimentation and future 
imaginaries.
- Short papers introducing and/or analyzing important concepts that can 
facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations.


Submission

Submitted papers for the technical programme should follow the format of 
the Mobisys conference (6 pages maximum). For the special 
interdisciplinary session, submissions should be limited to 2 pages, 
without a predefined format. More details for the submission procedure 
are available at http://diynetworking.net/submission.php

Hi all!

Some of us are in London today for the FLOSS4P2P workshop: 
http://p2pvalue.eu/floss4p2p-workshop-agenda
and will be discussing offline networks in the afternoon.

As for Florence, I guess there is room for late submissions for the 
"interdisciplinarity session" but the budget is very limited and I am not 
sure how much support we can still offer (the registration fee last year 
was ~300EUR and the organizers seem to be strict).

In any case, I am trying to organize something outside the workshop and 
bring together the local
hackers (http://www.firenze.ninux.org/) with local community activists
(http://www.lemurate.comune.fi.it/lemurate/) and do some brainstorming
on how local networks can help support such initiatives. Note for example,
that those activists in Florence
are already trying to escape for the "facebook" solution for connecting in
the neighbourhood (there is
this "social street" movement based on facebook groups: 
http://www.socialstreet.it/international/info-english/)
by trying http://my-neighbourhood.eu/ (but do like the idea of offline 
networks and would like to try).

So, the natural question raised is: how to proceed to set-up something 
like my-neighbourhood on top of a local WCN?

More soon!

Re: [off.networks] interdisciplinary workshop on DIY networking - deadline extended

From:

Hey! Long time no see :-)

Actually, some of us did meet in London recently at this workshop:
http://p2pvalue.eu/2nd-floss4p2p-workshop

The videos of Danja's talk on superglue and mine on offline networks are 
available here:
http://p2pvalue.eu/blog/floss4p2p-workshop-day-2
(I have not dared to see mine yet and I apologize if I didn't represent
correctly some of the examples of offline networks that I used )

I also wanted to say that the program for the workshop in Florence is almost
ready and although the "proceedings" are now closed you can still propose
to present a "demo". So, if you are still interested to participate please
contact me ...
