The Wikisource Community User Group (WCUG) — together with Wikimedia Österreich (WMAT) and Wikimedia Italia (WMIT) — host

the first international Wikisource Conference from November 20 to 22, 2015 in Vienna, Austria.

The aim is to strenghten and grow the Wikisource communities by

  • empowering volunteers who want to run or activate dormant communities (like WS-ES)
  • showcasing tools, projects, experiences in order to learn from one another
  • fostering exchange with chapters representatives to discuss projects that can be done now
  • creating a sense of belonging in the sparse international community
  • transferring the “WCUG representative role” to more volunteers, brief them
  • inviting other possible partners like Europeana, Internet Archive, Project Gutenberg, and GLAMs professionals.
