Round table discussions involve the audience!

Welcome to the Discussion Room page! Like last year, Wikimania will have a dedicated Discussion Room available, which will facilitate round table discussions during the regular programming of the conference. The topics are yet to be decided, but you are warmly invited to suggest topics already on this page.

Outline

The idea is to increase the number of open, facilitated discussions during Wikimania that are actually about the content projects. The participation of the audience is critical, and therefore your input on what topics would be good, as well! Please share your thoughts below.

Outline:

  • Discussions of 40-50 minutes each;
  • Clearly defined topic for each discussion, all related to the Wikimedia communities (no discussions on meta-topics, fundraising, governance, affiliates etc.);
  • Aiming to reach pre-defined goals during the discussion;
  • There are no expert panels, speakers, slides;
  • Discussions take place either in English or Spanish (for the full duration of that slot - no translations);
  • Discussions are moderated by a facilitator;
  • There is no audience, and everybody is audience;
  • Key lessons and points are documented live on etherpad, and may be processed later.

Program & Topics for 2015

In 2015, we have 8 slots available for the discussion room, allowing for 15 different topics to be discussed. Four of these topics will be discussed in Spanish, the others in English. Below you will find the most up to date schedule for that, with links to more detailed discussion pages.
