Registration Period[edit]

Registration opens on Friday, February 13, 2015 and closes on Monday, March 16, 2015.

Who should register?[edit]

The eligibility criteria for participating in the Wikimedia Conference 2015 have been aligned to the Affiliates’ Agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation. Please note that the criteria have changed compared to last year.

Chapters, Thematic Organizations and User Groups must have shown signs of recent activity AND be up-to-date on their reporting by the eligibility deadline (February 28). Moreover, affiliates need to have been officially recognized by the Wikimedia Foundation before February 01, 2015. Please check the overview of the eligibility statuses before taking further steps.

Chapters and Thematic Organizations can send two delegates; or up to four, if they have paid staff; User Groups can send one delegate.

Affiliates are asked to only send delegates that are well-informed in goings-on at the affiliate, able to confidently answer questions about it and share experience from their group. They should also be empowered to commit their group to involvement in proposed projects or initiatives. We will publish all participants’ names on the Meta page shortly after their registration in order to help affiliates check that only their selected representatives have registered. Please make sure to check this page regularly.

We also hope that several members of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees and staff, the Funds Dissemination Committee as well as the Affiliations Committee will participate in the conference. We see a huge advantage in having their representatives on site and encourage them to take part in a range of talks and discussions. Please also register via the following link.

Scholarships[edit]

For Chapters and Thematic Organizations who have not budgeted for the conference in their annual plan or project grants, there are scholarships available for two persons each.

For User Groups who have not budgeted for the conference in their annual plans or project grants, there are scholarships available for one person.
