Proposed participation[edit]

I am Sulthan from India, PhD scholar in Finance and active in research and publications. Active in Wikipedia and very much intended to carry out my best contributions to Wikimedia foundation. Attending Creative commons summit will help me understand every term of it and I will bring out the awareness through my edits in the wiki and future works. I have published more than 25 papers in peer reviewed journals and clearly am understanding the importance of open access to something and being a supporter of GNU and as an R programmer, I use GNU licence to my R program that was recently published in CRAN. Participating in this particular event will help me further in understanding the usage of cc licence and to promote it. Everything I learn will be carefully implemented in Wiki contributions and Will motivate people around me on contribution to wiki.

Goal and expected impact[edit]
