Open Knowledge Conference 2010

joseph seddon
Wikimedia UK have partnered with the Open Knowledge foundation to run the 2010 Open Knowledge Conference, planned to be held in London next spring. In conjunction with this event, Wikimedia UK will also be holding our AGM.

As part of this partnership, the OKF are looking for members of WMUK who would be interested in the organisation of the conference. The two committees that have been formed to organise the conference are as follows:

  • Organising commitee - This committee will be responsible for organising the venue, materials, call for participation, seeking sponsors etc. No prior experience is need in conference organising, just the ability to have some good ideas and to work in a team.

  • Research track committee - This committee will be responsible for selecting research papers about "open knowledge" for the conference research track. Reasearch experience is recommended, although not required and the research experience does not have to be in open knowledge.

You can be a member of more than one committee so if you are interested in helping out, please email [hidden email] . If your not a member of Wikimedia UK, please read with regards to joining the chapter.
