Team and Volunteers

Wikimania 2007 Taipei :: a Globe in Accord
(Redirected from Team)

Please see also: Translation team and Acknowledgement.

Both previous Wikimania conferences succeeded through the efforts of our many conference volunteers. There were positions open for both local and non-local volunteers. We encourage every Wikimania 2007 conference attendee to consider helping make this year's community even more successful.

Current Needs

See Also: Team Bulletin on Oct. 28, Volunteers for translation

  • Onsite Conference Session Moderators As our program schedule firms up, we'll need capable folks to assist in the important tasks of introducing, thanking, and otherwise wrangling those nice folks presenting at conference sessions.
  • Translator (worldwide)
Translate basic pages and periodical reports (like Team Bulletin).
Translate Wikimania papers.
  • School promotion tour and volunteer training (in Taiwan)
The team is looking for contact persons from each school for the "Campus promotion tour and volunteer training" activity. The team asks any student associations, computer centers, clubs, and libraries in Taiwan that are interested to contact the team.
