Poster session

Wikimania 2008 Alexandria :: Change the shape of wisdom

In addition to the regular talks (see the schedule) Wikimania 2008 will offer lightning talks and posters. Posters will be displayed all conference days in the multi-purpose hall, so everyone can have a look at it in the time he or she wants. During the afternoon break at day 2, 2008-07-18 between 15:00-16:00 there is a special poster session. At this time the authors of the posters will be at their poster to answer questions.
