The Enterprise MediaWiki Conference Spring 2017, or EMWCon Spring 2017, will be held Wednesday to Friday, March 8-10, 2017, in McLean, VA, USA, a suburb of Washington, DC. EMWCon Spring 2017 will be a three-day conference featuring discussions of topics related to "Enterprise MediaWiki", i.e. the usage of MediaWiki software by and within companies, non-profits, governments, and other organizations. There will be two days of talks followed by a one day Create Camp. The intended audience of EMWCon Spring 2017 is anyone who uses, or would like to learn more about, MediaWiki within organizations. Suggested topics for talks include:
- Examples of use of MediaWiki in organizations
- Lessons learned and challenges in the use of MediaWiki and MediaWiki extensions in organizations
- Gamification and other incentives for wiki contributions
- Wikitext patterns and wiki design patterns
- Wiki development frameworks
- MediaWiki extension usage and development
- New extensions, extension updates, and ideas for future extensions
This is the second EMWCon, after EMWCon Spring 2016 last year. EMWCon began as a spinoff of the Semantic MediaWiki Conference, or SMWCon, which is an annual conference, held in the fall in Europe. EMWCon and SMWCon are not that different from one another: they are both three-day events, and, despite EMWCon's broader scope, the overall topics of discussion tend to be similar.
