Hi Sanghee,
One organisation tool which have worked well for prior FOSS4G events is 
to set up a wiki to collect your ideas as you go along. It can start out 
small and you can then fill in content as the conference gets closer.
The wiki we used for foss4g 2009 is at: 

In particular, we found it very useful for collaboratively creating 
press releases, which then becomes an archive after the press release 
was put out. (You might find it useful to refer back to prior press 
releases when crafting your own press release.)

Here are the 2009 press releases:

And I confirm that I'm happy to help review your press release if you wish.
