Wikidata:WikidataCon 2017/Volunteer/Program committee


The program committee is in charge of welcoming, selecting and scheduling the submissions. Its goal is to build an interesting, diverse and community-driven program for the WikidataCon.

The committee is free to discuss and decide about the different formats of the events, to build some rules or criteria to accept or refuse the submissions, to decide on the way they want to use to make their selection.

Most of the work needed by the committee will be between May 2017 (definition of the possible formats, preparation of the submission form) and September 2017 (announcement of the program). All these tasks can be done remotely.


The program committee consists of 3 persons from the organization team (WMDE employees) and 3 volunteers. Once the committee is selected, it is not possible to join it, unless one of the members withdraws.
