The Wikimedia Conference (WMCON) is the annual meeting of all Wikimedia organizations (Wikimedia chapters, thematic organization, user groups, and the Wikimedia Foundation), as well as the WMF Board, AffCom and FDC to discuss the future of the Wikimedia movement in terms of collaboration, structures and organizational development.
The WMCON16 is organized and hosted by Wikimedia Deutschland (WMDE) in close collaboration with the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF).
Next to the core conference, taking place on April 22-24 (Fri-Sun), WMF organizes pre-conference workshops on Program Design, Evaluation, and Learning on April 20 and 21 (Tues-Wed). More information on the workshops can be found here. Should you be interested in participating in the pre-conference workshop, you can indicate your interest within the WMCON16 registration form (see link below). Please note that final attendance confirmation for the pre-conference workshop is sent to you by Jaime Anstee until end of January 2016.
Registration opens on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 and closes on Friday, January 15, 2016. Please note that no registrations will be accepted after this deadline.
