Wikimania 2018 Call for Submissions

Liam Wyatt
Dear Wikimedia community,

We are pleased to announce that Wikimania 2018 is now accepting proposals for workshops, discussions, presentations, or research posters to give during the conference. To read the full instructions visit the event wiki and click on the link provided there to make your proposal:

The deadline for submissions is 23:59 UTC on Sunday March 18, 2018.
This is approximately 6 weeks away. Whether you are a community member of one of the Wikimedia projects, or a fellow open content creator or consumer, we welcome your proposal for a session. 

This year, the conference will be taking place in Cape Town, South Africa, where the organisers are giving this Wikimania a unique flavor — an explicit theme based in African philosophy:

“Bridging knowledge gaps, the ubuntu way forward.”
Read more about this theme, why it was chosen, and what it means for the conference program at the Wikimedia blog:

Throughout the conference program, this theme will be tightly held, but loosely defined - in order to encourage a diverse range of responses to the theme. It is our hope that this theme will give us the opportunity to further our goal of creating the “sum of human knowledge”, by encouraging greater diversity and inclusion in who participates and what we discuss at Wikimania.

To learn more, and to make a proposal for the conference, please visit:

Please forward this announcement to other lists and groups across the Wikimedia movement.

We look forward to reading your submissions. Sincerely,

Program committee co-chairs Emna Mizouni, Felix Nartey, and Liam Wyatt.
