WikiConference North America will be held Nov
8-11 2019 at MIT, in collaboration with the Credibility Coalition. This year’s
theme is “reliability/credibility.” Wikimedians from around North America will gather to
discuss issues of misinformation, teaching with Wikipedia, Wikidata, outreach
to cultural institutions, inclusion and diversity in the Wikimedia projects,
tech and tools for reliable information, and much more. Those new to the
Wikimedia projects are welcome along with experienced editors.
Friday Nov. 8 will be a “culture crawl” day, featuring workshops,
trainings, Wikipedia editing and backstage tours of local museums, based at the
Museum of Fine Arts in downtown Boston. Saturday and Sunday Nov 9-10 will be
conference days at the Stata Center on the MIT campus, featuring five tracks of
presentations, workshops and discussions. Monday Nov. 11 will be a hands-on
hackathon and discussion day at MIT, centered around projects and tools related
to information reliability.
