Code4Lib 2013 Committees

If you are interested in helping out with a particular part of the Code4Lib 2013 conference, create an account on this wiki and sign-up for one or more of the groups below (called 'committees' for lack of a better term). Each committee should select a committee lead that will coordinate the activities of the committee and its work with the hosting site. Discussions of a non-sensitive nature should take place on the Code4LibCon mailing list for transparency and future reference. Please feel free to improve the summary statements for each of the committees.

During the Conference Volunteers - If you're going to be at the conference, sign up to help out!
