Mesh Networking Summit 2004 is a two-day intensive mindswap event between industrial and university researchers to discuss wireless mesh networking, ad-hoc networking, community networking, and residential broadband access. The goal of this summit is to determine how academia and industry can come together to make mesh networking mainstream. The attendees include established researchers with expertise in areas that cover the entire OSI stack including: smart antennas, PHY communications, medium access control, multi-hop routing, QoS, network management, Internet protocols etc. The meeting will be interactive with a healthy dose of information exchange as the researchers collectively identify open problems and impediments to deployment. It is the hope of the organizers that at the end of this meeting, all attendees will have a better understanding of the state of the art and the key set of open research problems. The meeting will help identify areas for potential collaborations among the participants.
