on Friday May 13, 2011 there will be an international Wiki Loves Monuments workshop in Berlin. This workshop will be organized by me and Maarten and Wikimedia Deutschland.
Because we're organizing a European contest, we would like to make sure that every participating country/region is going to be represented at this workshop, so that we can coordinate matters, exchange experiences and help wach other with problems.
who is coming
I would like to ask all participating countries to check with themselves who will be going. There is a maximum of 25 participants, so please restrict yourself in sending people. There will be no absolute maxima at this stage, but I ask for your understanding. Please send *asap* on this list who will be coming. We will then provide you with a code to register.
The costs for this meeting will be 25-35 euro per night, incl breakfast and your own travel costs. If you are representing a chapter that would like to join WLM and to attend, but does not have the funds, please send your details anyway, and let us know that you need financial support. We will find a way to support you.
This workshop is coupled to the hackathon happening 13-15 May in Berlin too. This allows for interaction with the developers, and ways to ask them to help us write tools etc which we need. See for more information about the hackathon: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Berlin_Hackathon_2011
. If you are a developer, you will also be able to register there. Some developers might also attend our workshop. If you're a developer, consider to hang around two more days :)
If you have any questions, please ask them. I dont have to remind you that we need to act quickly here, sorry for the delays, because the tickets will get more expensive etc.
