If you are interested in volunteering for Wikimania 2013, see Volunteers.

Wikimania 2013 will be led by a team of volunteers from Wikimedia Hong Kong, the local Wikimedia chapter. Among the Wikimedian community, Hong Kong is best known for its youthful Wikimedians. According to Jimmy Wales during his visit to Hong Kong in 2006, Hong Kong has the "youngest Wikimedian community" in the whole world in terms of participants' age.

If you wish to contact the Local team, please e-mail wikimania-p at wikimedia.hk .

The local team is supported by the programme committee and the scholarship committee, two international groups of Wikimedians specialising in delivering their specific parts of Wikimania 2013.
