This page is insanely out of date. This page on the Wikimania wiki is slightly less insane.

This is the page for the organisation team. We currently need more help with:

  • Scheduling flights and hotel stays, getting airline package deals;
  • Coordinating unofficial meetings and gatherings on a wiki-calendar along with the "prime-time" calendar of invited speakers and centrally-planned events.
  • Organizing paper and talk submissions as official proceedings (electronic)

If you can help with any of these, please add your name after the item in question.

Preparations for wikimania will be done over the planning mailinglist, please subcribe there.
