FSCONS heavily relies on volunteers to help us out here and there and to make FSCONS a success. The volunteers are coordinated mainly by Mirko and Stian from the Core Team. To get in touch with mirko either go to the people page (wiki.fscons.org/People) or send a mail to mirko [at] creativecommons.se. Below we have listed some of the tasks that right now FSCONS needs help with.

A list of tasks where volunteers can help:

* on-site staff: preparations, registrations, checking badges, monitor the halls and other small tasks
* blog about FSCONS
* speak about FSCONS
* put up posters (tell us and we send them to you) -- send a mail to adm[at]fscons.org
* digg us etc
* Feedback: asking attendees about their view on the conference
* Helpers: coordination of helpers
* IT: help with the network, setting up presentation PCs for speakers
* IT support: help speakers with the setup for the network and their slides
