Community-Lab: experimental research in community networks and bottom-up broadband

Title: Community-Lab: experimental research in community networks and bottom-up broadband

Presenters: Bart Braem (iMinds), Leandro Navarro (UPC)

Community-Lab is an open, distributed infrastructure for researchers to experiment with Community Networks or bottom-up broadband, that are large scale, self-organized and decentralized networks and services built and operated by citizens for citizens. The goal of Community-Lab is to advance research and empower society by understanding and removing obstacles for these networks and services. We outline Community-Lab's aim, development, characteristics and infrastructure. We present its current status of development, deployment and explain how experiments can be carried out.
