Relevance of the Wireless Summit for CONFINE

Barcelona,Spain, 4-7th of October 2012

The International Summit for Community Wireless Networks was held at the Technical University of Catalonia from 4-7th of October 2012. The summit brought together community network activists from all over the world, with more then hundred participants attending the summit.

The CONFINE project was presented in one of the sessions and the possiblity of participation through CONFINE’s first Open Call was explained to the audience.

Now, approximately one month after the Wireless Summit, we can confirm our perception of an increased interest from wireless communities to participate in CONFINE’s Open Call. Since these communities are not easily reached by the usually call dissemination media that target academic and industrial organizations, we consider that, in addition to opening up roadmaps and collaborations, the Wireless Summit was particularly helpful to spread CONFINE’s first Open Call to the community networks.
