"The Free Conference Kit" How to Start, Promote, Organize, and Run a Local Academic Conference for (Almost) Nothing Using Web 2.0 Tools


Session Abstract/Description: 

The organizers of the WIDE-EMU regional conference invite you to a "making of" session where we will discuss how to set up and run your own regional event for practically nothing. Of course, nothing is free - but if you plan ahead, adopt a DIY attitude, make use of institutional goodwill and just ask nicely, you can do a nice event with very little out-of-pocket expense for your attendees.

We hope this session inspires similar regional events and we intend to share all of our organizing materials with all who attend and ask (nicely). :)
