I'm also very interested in being mentored in a program along these lines.

I very much like the idea of combining training, mentoring and volunteering
- having a specific, practical project to work on, plus someone to talk to
about it, would be tremendously beneficial to me. And, you know, not to be
completely selfish - doing something useful to others would be great too.

Side note (also selfish): I hope that at least parts of this idea will be
available to people not attending the conference. I'd love to go to a
future conference, but I'm not making it to this one.
