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.
