Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2024

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2024 (#WMCEE) is an annual conference centered on Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia and other related projects) in countries of Central and Eastern Europe (more recently, also in Central Asia). It features presentations on Wikimedia projects, other wikis, free/open source software, free knowledge and free content, and these topics' social and technical aspects. The 2024 meeting will take place in Istanbul, Türkiye, in the period 20-22 September, organized by Wikimedia Community UG Türkiye.

The idea was conceived at an informal meetup that took place on 6 August 2011 at Wikimania 2011 in Haifa. Most attendees from the region's countries were present and shared their experiences establishing a more global community. The history of CEE meetings is already 11 years old, starting from the first meeting in Belgrade (2012). The following meetings were organized in Modra (2013), Kyiv (2014), Voore (2015), Dilijan (2016), Warsaw (2017), Lviv (2018), Belgrade (2019), two online meetings during the Covid pandemic, Ohrid (2022) and the last one took place in Tbilisi (2023).
