Deadline for Accommodation at the Headquarters hotel is June 22.  See below!

 

Wikimania 2017 will be held  August 9-13, 2017  in and around the Le Centre Sheraton Montréal, in Montréal, Canada The venue will host most of the conference, hackathon, meetups, and pre-events. Most of the WMF personnel and scholarship recipients will be housed there as well.  Those that submitted accepted talks for the program have been notified and the agenda will be finalized in the next few weeks.

 

We would like to encourage all speakers and attendees to register early and book their flight and travel as soon as possible.   It is going to be a very popular, busy summer in Canada this year because of the 150th

of Canada and the 375th Anniversary  of Montréal.

If you wish to stay at the headquarters hotel and take advantage of our discounted rate, the deadline is June 22.  After that prices will be higher and availability throughout the city limited.    There is also a secondary property close by that is holding rooms for us as well.  See:

Thank you Ellie: we are all looking forward to Wikimania and to welcoming the community in the beautiful, exciting city of Montréal! 

I would like to personally encourage everyone to register soon, and if you are able to, to arrive in time for the preconference day(s) and exploring the city. And as you make travel plans, remember that we have a welcome dinner on Thursday and a closing party on Sunday! 

Also, for presenters in particular, I want to emphasize the DRAFT in that draft programme... to get sessions into the most appropriate room for the type of session, some community-submitted sessions will move around between the three days, plus there are some additions to come. If you have specific needs, as usual, please write [hidden email]. We will also be contacting all accepted presenters and submitters again soon as well with further info. I know that there have been various issues with getting emails for waitlisted talks in particular, plus some of you have questions that are waiting; we're working on a better system for contacting everyone. THANK YOU for your patience, as I juggle many moving parts (and a day job)!

cheers, 
Phoebe Ayers
