This track will have simultaneous translation between English and Spanish.

>> Also please see Production of knowledge hosted track Call.

WikiCulture & Community

There's a lot happening behind those articles; there's a huge, ever changing group of people that has somehow self organized to create something extraordinary. How did this happen? How does it work? Where's it headed? Can we improve it?

Technology, 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.

Legal & Free Culture

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?

Education Outreach

How can Wikimedia be used in Education? Can students be valuable members of the community?

Presentation lengths

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:

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.
