tl:dr; The documentation of the Wikimedia Conference 2016 is published
and Follow-Up. The feedback evaluation of the conference is published on


Dear Wikimedia friends,

In April, Wikimedia Deutschland hosted the Wikimedia Conference 2016 in
Berlin.[1] y job as the Program and Engagement Coordinator is – besides
creating the program – to make this conference more sustainable and secure
continuous participation of everyone involved.[2] My primary assignment is
to support the participants and speakers. But it’s more than that: My task
is to ensure and monitor that essential conference topics are constantly
being worked on and further developed.

The first step for your further engagement is the documentation of the
sessions. I’m happy to announce that I just have published it on Meta: and

Based on the notes of the volunteer notetakers, I have summarised the
conversations and discussions of most of the sessions. Many sessions have a
“How to move forward” box where you can see the next steps agreed upon at
the conference and contact persons to reach out to. The documentation is
not only a valuable resource for participants, but should also provide
those who did not attend with insights and inspiration.

During the pre-conference Thursday of Wikimania 2016, Nicole and I will
host a “WMCON Follow-Up Day” where will work further on the main topics of
the Wikimedia Conference. I’ll publish more details about this day in the
upcoming days.

Additionally, our Evaluation team has published the WMCON evaluation based
on the post-survey we asked participants to fill out.[3] Thanks to all
participants who have rated the Wikimedia Conference extraordinary well:
67% of the participants said the conference was ‘excellent’, 32% rated it
as ‘good’. Wow! You can find further details and opinions in the evaluation

An overall report of the Wikimedia Conference including the Program and
Engagement Coordination as well as lessons learned will be published by the
end of July.

If you have any remarks, comments or feedback, please don’t hesitate to get
in touch with me.

Best regards from Berlin,





Cornelius Kibelka
