Wikimania 2015 à Mexico sera la onzième de cette série de conférences internationales annuelles, qui fournissent une occasion unique pour la communauté Wikimedia et nos projets à venir ensemble partager leurs objectifs communs et développer de meilleures façons de travailler ensemble sur un plan international.
Que vous soyez un membre de la communauté de l'un des projets Wikimedia (tels que Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikidata, s: Wikisource, Wikinews, Wikimedia Commons, Wiktionnaire, MediaWiki ou autres), un créateur de contenu libre ou un consommateur, nous nous recevrons avec plaisir votre proposition pour une session lors de Wikimania 2015.
- Call for proposals opens: January 19, 2015
- Deadline for submitting proposals: February 28, 2015
Notification suite acceptation : 20 avril 2015
Il y aura plusieurs thématiques de présentations lors de Wikimania 2015 afin de regrouper les soumissions et permettre au public de trouver différentes choses en parallèle à apprécier lors de Wikimania. Même si elles peuvent évoluer, elles sont actuellement :
Les projets Wikimedia dans les pays de langue espagnole
The Spanish Wikipedia is among the top 10 Wikipedias in visits, readers and editors, with hundreds of volunteers. Throughout the Spanish speaking world there are projects and enthusiast participants working for free knowledge through Wikimedia Projects and other free culture initiatives. This track will have simultaneous translation between English and Spanish.
- >> Also please see Production of knowledge hosted track Call.
WikiCulture & Communauté
Beaucoup de choses se trament derrière les articles ; une énorme foule s'est à tant bien qu mal organisée pour aboutir à un entité extraordinaire. Comment cela est-ce arrivé? Comment cela fonctionne-t-il? Dans quel but ? Pouvons-nous l'améliorer?
Technologie, Interface & Infrastructure
Wikimedia is not just open content, but open source, and there are many significant changes that have happened, and are still to come.
You might like to consider attending the Hackathon, and submitting your session there, if you're looking primarily for a technical audience.
Culture libre & Légal
Making the world's content free! What does this mean? Why is it important? What projects are people working on? Have you done something great with some free content?
GLAM & Outreach
Are you working with GLAMs (galleries, archives, libraries, museums) to release some content or access their expertise?
How can Wikimedia be used in Education? Can students be valuable members of the community?
Each year, we receive a large number submissions for the programme. To accommodate as many of the great presentations as possible, we strongly suggest that you limit your proposed session's length to be a maximum of 30 minutes, including time for questions. You can request additional time, which may be granted if your proposal is particularly extensive. The programme committee may offer a shorter slot than you propose if time in the schedule is tight.
By submitting a proposal, you must agree that:
- your proposal's abstract and any slides associated with it will be released under the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike Licence 3.0; and
- if accepted, the session will be broadcast and/or recorded and made available in audio and/or visual form under the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike Licence 3.0.
If you object to these requirements (for instance, if you would prefer not to be filmed), please talk to a programme committee member before submitting a proposal.
Your proposal will be discussed and rated in public by the Programme Committee, and you will be notified through the contact information you supply of the committee's decision. If your submission is not added to the preliminary schedule, please do not be discouraged: Wikimania 2015 will have time set aside in the schedule for participants and attendees to participate in unofficial, self-organized talks and working groups. You will have many opportunities to bring topics forward on-site, as well as socializing and sharing ideas casually.
For a list of currently submitted submissions, see Wikimania 2015 submissions.
Authors will be notified of paper acceptance or rejection no later than April 20, 2015. If your paper is accepted and you need an invitation letter to apply for a visa to attend the conference, please contact wikimania-infowikimedia.org as soon as possible. (Visa applications can take at least 60 working days to process.) Please identify yourself as a presenter and include your mailing address in your email.
By submitting a paper, you agree that at least one of the authors will attend the conference to present it. If the conference registration fee will pose a hardship for the presenter of the accepted paper, please contact wikimania-registrationwikimedia.org. A limited number of stipends will be available for accepted speakers who need assistance with travel and accommodation. Complete program and registration information will be available in April or May 2015 on the conference website.
