Dear Kavya, It is really nice to see that you're interested in organising one opencon satellite event during WCI. I would suggest that, It will be better if we can make it a panel discussion rather than one single session. We can invite Joe and Nick for guest sessions through Skype or Hangout. I attended last year's OpenCon satelite event in Kolkata, So I would be happy to help you. Thanks Face-smile.svgSailesh Patnaik (Talk|Contribs) 19:25, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

That suggestion is really wonderful Sailesh Patnaik. Panel discussion would be the apt choice for satellite event in my opinion too. I find you are are an OAI ambassador. It would be great if you could pour in ideas and if you are interested lets make it a joint proposal. --Kavya Manohar (talk) 03:52, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
Kavya, Sounds good to me! Let's host a meetup together during WCI. We can add our aim and goal here--Sailesh Patnaik (Talk|Contribs) 12:32, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
Sure Sailesh Patnaik!! I have started it here. Please Join.--Kavya Manohar (talk) 08:39, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Kavya & Sailesh Patnaik, I am wondering if a short workshop would be more impactful than a presentation, panel discussion or meetup. Many Indian Wikimedians are new to the concept of Open Access and can benefit more from a systematic introduction of the concept, tools, and resources. --Ravi (talk) 08:19, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Ravi, I think the short workshop will be helpfull.--Sailesh Patnaik (Talk|Contribs) 11:24, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
