Wikimania 2020 est reportée à 2021

Wikimania 2020, une conférence Wikimédia, devait se tenir à Bangkok (Thaïlande) du 5 au 9 août 2020,[1] coïncidant avec le 15e anniversaire de l'événement. En raison de la pandémie de COVID-19, il a été reporté à 2021.[2] Wikimania 2021 ne s'est tenue que sous la forme d'un événement virtuel en ligne, et Wikimania 2022 était un événement virtuel combiné avec des rencontres locales. Wikimania 2023 marque un retour à une conférence en présentiel. Il était prévu qu'elle soit accueilli par Wikimedia ESEAP (Asie de l'Est, du Sud-Est et du Pacifique), une première pour une collaboration régionale. C'était la troisième fois qu'il était accueilli en Asie et la première fois en Asie du Sud-Est.

Processus de sélection

Due to a series of changes in the management of Wikimania at the Wikimedia Foundation and after discussions with the proposed venues and new potential venues, the Wikimania Committee considered for Wikimania 2020 the venues of Perth, Bali and Bangkok and has been encouraging a broader collaboration among regional teams. The selected venue was officially announced at Wikimania 2019.

Wikimania 2020 sera la 16e conférence Wikimania, une célébration et une assemblée annuelles pour la communauté internationale de Wikimedia.

Nous prendrons en compte des facteurs additionnels sur des sites/hôtes potentiels, particulièrement le coût, l'accessibilité, la sécurité et l'efficacité de l'équipe organisatrice. Dans le but de varier le lieu de la conférence dans différentes régions du monde, le comité de pilotage encourage particulièrement des propositions d'Asie. S'il vous plaît notez ceci :

  • Conference should be held in a venue that is close to reasonably priced lodging (it can also be in a hotel or a campus itself)
  • Lodging that is within walking distance that is affordable, clean, and safe (or transportation that can be easily provided for the attendees from the lodging to the venue)
  • Reasonable transportation cost to Venue (international round trip air fare, length of travel time)
  • Close proximity to an international airport
  • Conference should be held in the July–August timeframe. The conference takes place over a weekend; the format is usually Tuesday through Sunday. (Religious holidays will be taken into account when finalizing actual dates.)
  • A volunteer, core team comprised of people with heavy involvement in the Wikimedia movement’s projects; this team will be responsible for the conference program, providing volunteers and sponsors, doing local outreach, and working closely throughout the year with the WMF staff (the latter will handle most of the logistics)
  • List any previous experience in hosting events
  • Description about why host city/country is a compelling venue for Wikimania
  • A goal/vision for how the conference might leverage a project or an issue that is of importance to the team/country
  • Ease of getting entrance visas into the country AND transit visas for most of our attendees, (can discuss this in more detail with the Events Manager)
  • Personal safety of participants (e.g., welcoming environment/culture regardless of people's sexual orientation, race, age, gender, expression, disability, etc.)
  • Conference facilities should accommodate anywhere from 600 to 1,400 attendees, depending on location (the main hall of the venue should be able to host most of the attendees for the keynote talks) and be free or reasonably priced
  • Flexible meeting space that can accommodate multiple tracks for five days
  • Meeting space that is attractive for socializing and close to restaurants, transportation, etc.
  • Excellent and fast network infrastructure, especially an enterprise grade wireless network.

If you are interested in discussing the possibilities and working with the WMF Events Manager in preparing a proposal to host and organize Wikimania 2020, please contact eyoung@wikimedia.org AND indicate your interest below by October 15. Do not prepare a proposal or bid in the space below. Final proposals will be posted at this site at a later date. Also, if you know of an individual or group that we should approach about hosting, we are encouraging nominations as well. The Steering Committee and the WMF expect to make a decision by the end of the year or early 2019. Thank you! --EYoung (WMF) (talk) 22:37, 6 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
