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
