The call for participation for Wikimania 2009 closes on April 15. I think
we should submit a panel or more on mapping topics, including the OSM
project but also on the topic of coordinates, DBpedia, etc. We should also
do a workshop on OSM, as a preconference workshop (how to contribute data to
OSM, etc.) There probably is space to do a short workshop during the
I would like Ævar also to be there to present (maybe on more technical,
back-end aspects?) and help with workshops. And, I would like to also
present on some aspect of the OSM project (maybe on front-end aspects or
from user point-of-view, or on future developments) and there is room for
more presenters and help with workshops.
Please let me know if you are interested in presenting something, and I can
help coordinate and give guidance on submitting. There is a possibility of
scholarships for presenters, though I'm not involved with scholarships so
can't make promises.
