were several parallel sessions happening at the same time. Arjuna Rao
Chavala welcomed the participants and provided a overview of Wikipedia and
Wikimedia Chapter. Netha and Viswam covered wikipedia literacy and
essentials. Manoj and Abhishek helped the participants during hands on
session. Pranav Ashok, 3rd year CS student at NIT-Calicut ably took care of
the logistics and organisation of the event. Full

There have been several enquiries for conducting similar events from
different parts of the country following active promotion Wikipedia
Academies through various social media. Chapter is following up with the
proposers to firm up the schedules. Readers are requested to volunteer in
identifying additional co-hosts for Wiki Academies and help in conducting
the same.

Thanks Arjuna Rao Chavala, Abhishek, Manoj K Mohan, Netha Hussain and
Viswanathan Prabhakaran for organizing the Wiki Academy @ NIT Calicut.

City and Language SIG

Chapter would like to have strong City and Language SIG. Currently very few
members have identified themselves with a city/ language SIG by
participating in the voting process for Chairpersons. All the active people
on City and Language SIG are requested to conduct few events and take up
membership drive to strengthen the groups.

We look forward to your continued support
