Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
I've been organizing, coorganizing and helping out with several international or local Wikimedia events of various sizes and types and I've seen people still reinventing the same wheels and doing the same not-the-best decisions.
This session should be about both discussing the experiences from past organizers as well as giving advices to those who are interested in running some event.
Preferably, at the end there should be some outcome in the form of guidelines.
(further breakdown tbd)
assuming WikiCulture & Community
Length of session (if other than 30 minutes, specify how long)
60 minutes seems to make a sense
Will you attend Wikimania if your submission is not accepted?
depending on scholarship, preferably yes
Slides or further information (optional)
Special requests
Seems to me it would make a sense to have this discussion more towards the end of Wikimania to be able to reflect the fresh experiences from it already.
