Dear Wikimedia friends, We are happy to announce the date of the next Wikimedia Conference: From 20 to 22 April 2018, we will welcome representatives from Wikimedia Affiliates and partners, from the Wikimedia Foundation as well as its committees in Berlin. We will closely coordinate with the WMF’s teams for all things logistics, program and funding, and are thankful for their support.
Taking the clear feedback from participants and our experiences from several years of organizing this event into account, we have also agreed to host WMCON in Berlin for an unlimited time. You will be able to read more about our lessons learned in September/October, when we publish our report about hosting WMCON from 2015-2017. As in the previous years, we will create a space for conversations around the future of our movement, with a special focus on the affiliates’ responsibilities and needs as well as collaboration within our movement and with our partners. Phase 2 of the movement strategy process will also be in full swing at that time, so that WMCON can again provide one essential platform for strategic conversations among affiliates and the WMF. The main conference will run from Friday to Sunday, and will again accommodate pre- and post-conference sessions and workshops. In the coming months, we will provide you with all necessary information on eligibility criteria for attendance, registration, funding and program design. Stay tuned for updates! If you have questions or ideas to share, feel free to reach out via the usual channels or talk to Abraham, Cornelius or me next week at Wikimania.
