Hello everybody,

Here's a general update about the WikidataCon, that will take place in
Berlin on October 28th and 29th :)

General information
The WikidataCon <https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikidataCon_2017>
is a conference organized for and by the Wikidata community, and supported
by Wikimedia Deutschland.
If you edit Wikidata, make queries with SPARQL, build scripts, gadgets or
external tools, reuse data from Wikidata with your software or your
service, if you belong to an organization who wants to use or donate data,
if you're working on open data, datajournalism, datavizualisation, open
knowledge, civictech... *you're welcome to the WikidataCon*!

It will take place on October 28th-29th (+ social event on Friday 27th), in
the Tagesspiegel venue, in Berlin. Due to our international community, the
even will take place in English only. However, language/local meetups can
be added to the program.

We are expecting 150 persons from all around the world, to celebrate
Wikidata's 5th birthday and *share knowledge and experience whithin the
community*.


Program
With two days of talks, workshops, demos, meetups, and social events, the
diverse and awesome people that belong to the Wikidata community will be
able to share their experiences, their favorite tools, learn from the
others, discover new ways to create, enrich, reuse data from the free
knowledge base.

The program is currently being build via a *call for projects
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikidataCon_2017/Program>, running
until July 31st.* Feel free to support your favorite topics or propose a
project. A social event on the Friday evening and a birthday celebration
will also take place to bring the community together.


Attend
*Registration is now open
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikidataCon_2017/Attend/Register>,
until October 1st. *Registration is mandatory for everyone, including
speakers, WMF and WMDE employees, volunteers...

Important thing you need to know: the ticket is free of charge, and
includes the access to the conference, meals, drinks and goodies, but *does
not include travel and accommodation*. The attendees have to book these by
themselves.
If you plan to come, don't wait... Berlin is a touristic area :)


Scholarships
Some scholarships will be provided to help attendees to fund their travel
and accommodation for the conference. *The application is running until
July 16th
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikidataCon_2017/Scholarships>. *

Due to the few number of scholarships we can provide, we encourage people
to ask for support from their local chapter or user group.


How can you help?
- share this information with people, mailing-lists, wikis, who could be
interested
- if you are involved in a local chapter: ask your board if they can
provide some support for the volunteers of you country who would like to
join.
- if you want to *volunteer during the event*, you're more than welcome!
You can find more information here
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikidataCon_2017/Volunteer>.
- if you see any missing information or mistake, or you have any question,
feel free to contact me.


You can follow our updates on the wiki page
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikidataCon_2017>, the facebook
event <https://www.facebook.com/events/1358386070859989/> or the Twitter
account <https://twitter.com/wikidata>.
Thanks a lot for your attention, I hope I'll meet some of you during the
WikidataCon!

I assume this conference will be considered a "Wikimedia technical event"
and as such it will fall under the jurisdiction of the Code of Conduct (
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Code_of_Conduct) and its Committee?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Join the WikidataCon, 28-29 October in Berlin

Rogol Domedonfors
Gerard

It's a Wikimedia event, because it is "organized for and by the Wikidata
community".  It is a technical event, because it you are welcome if you
"build scripts, gadgets or external tools" among other criteria.  So it is
a Wikimedia technical event, which is the qualifying critrion for the Code
of Conduct: "It applies both within physical spaces, such as Wikimedia
technical events and Wikimedia technical presentations in other events
[...]"

As to the difference it makes: the Code of Conduct describes expected ways
of behaviour and lays down procedures for how to deal with breaches, which
the organisers and others are required to adhere to.

Léa Lacroix
Thanks for your question. Yes, it does, and we will have a group of

everyone respects this code of conduct and more generally, the well-being
of every attendees.
