[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Summit 2019: Registration now open

Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Wikimedians,

We are delighted to announce that the registration for the Wikimedia Summit
2019 [1], which will be held in Berlin at Mercure Hotel Berlin Tempelhof
Airport [2] from Friday, March 29, through Sunday, March 31, is now open!

As we have announced previously, the main focus of this redesigned event
will be the Movement Strategy Process. We invite affiliates, the Wikimedia
Foundation, its committees and Movement Strategy Working Group members to
check-in, have a look back and plan the next steps of the process together.

We would like to provide you with important information regarding the
eligibility for participation, participant number regulation, registration
procedure, specifics in regards to the travel and hotel booking as well as
the visa application process.

== Eligibility criteria and participant number regulation ==

The eligibility criteria for participating in the Wikimedia Summit 2019 are
aligned to the Affiliates’ Agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation.
Chapters, Thematic Organizations and User Groups must have shown signs of
recent activity and be up-to-date on their reporting [3] by the eligibility
deadline (December 1, 2018). Moreover, affiliations need to have been
officially recognized by the Wikimedia Foundation before January 1, 2018.
Before registering for the Wikimedia Summit, please check the eligibility
and status overview of your affiliate as well as the participant number
regulation on meta [4].

==Registration information==

To make the summit a success, it will be essential for the invited
affiliates to deliberately choose their delegates. Affiliates are asked to
send delegates that are well-informed in goings-on at the affiliate and
able to confidently answer questions about it. We have shared specific
registration advices and information regarding this [5].

We are looking forward to also welcoming members of the Wikimedia
Foundation Board of Trustees and staff, the Funds Dissemination Committee,
Simple APG committee as well as the Affiliations Committee in Berlin. We
see a huge advantage in having their representatives participate on site.

Also, the Core Team has invited Working Group members from the Movement
Strategy Working Groups.

All representatives need to register via the registration form [5]. The
registration deadline is Monday at midnight CET, December 17, 2018. Please
note that we won’t be able to accept and process registrations after this
deadline.

==Hotel and travel booking==

Depending on your group belonging the booking process varies. Therefore,
please double-check on meta [4] to which group you belong to and have the
group-specific travel and hotel booking information [6] in mind.

==Visa information==

Please visit the website of the Department of Foreign Affairs in Berlin [7]
to find out whether you need a visa for travelling to Germany. In case you
are in need of a visa, we advise you to register until November 19, 2018,
so that WMDE can assist you with the application process and send you the
required visa documents sufficiently in advance. All relevant information
and necessary steps to undertake are also described on meta [8].

Wikimedia Deutschland is looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin in
April!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us any time via [hidden email]
should you have any questions or comments.

Best regards,

Michelle & Cornelius

For the Wikimedia Summit Organizing Team

While I support the concept of this event in regards to gathering
affiliates and those at WMF who work with affiliates, I feel that I should
remind people that, as interesting as this event will likely be, it is not
an all-Wikimedia summit. I continue to object to the name of the event.
While I believe that I'm a minority of one on this point, I'm okay with
that.

I hope that this meeting will be valuable for the people who participate
and for the organizations which they represent. I'm glad that I attended
the Wikimedia Conference a few years ago, and as tiring as it was, I
consider it to have been one of my highlights of that year. If you can
attend then I encourage you to do so.

In reply to this post by Cornelius Kibelka
It is very sad that, despite Wikimedia Portugal currently having everything
up to date, being a very active and thriving chapter, being the only
remaining Portuguese-speaking Wikimedia organization in the whole Wikimedia
movement, also acting as a facilitator to all the Wikimedia communities all
over the Portuguese-speaking world on their relation with the rest of the
Wikimedia movement, and having fulfilled all its obligations, including all
those requested by AffCom, AffCom has decided to unilaterally force an
extension of the chapter suspension for more three months, claiming they
need more time to look into the case.
This not only made it impossible or almost impossible to carry on a lot of
activities that were already scheduled for those three months, including
our organization, co-organization and participation on two key national
scope GLAM and FOSS events, including a GLAM promotion event co-organized
with the National Library aimed the divulgation of GLAM partnerships and
projects to other similar institutions in the country, and the first Ubuntu
Conference in Portugal, with an obvious damage of the name of Wikimedia
along those GLAM and FOSS institutions and groups, but effectively blocked
us from taking part on the Wikimedia Summit, as the limit ends next 17
December, much before the new limit of the extension AffCom has imposed.

These are sad times for the Wikimedia movement here in Portugal.

Anyway, I wish the best for those of you that will be attending the
Wikimedia Summit next year, and sincerely hope it will be a success.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Summit 2019: Registration now open

Paulo Santos Perneta
(Just a quick followup on the important GLAM and FOSS events that were
risking being cancelled here in Portugal due to complete lack of WMF
support: While looking to all our options, I remember we had already
planned a meeting with the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Lisbon
about the Wikipedia Asia Month and the divulgation of the Russian culture
here in Portugal, including Madeira Island, where we have a strong relation
since the times of the czars until today, mainly covering arts and tourism.
I've contacted the Embassy, which showed interest on this project, so I've
just added those two events to the project we already add, to try to save
them adjusting them to the scope of the Russian culture, and I expect we
could meet in the next few days, hopefully still in time to save the events

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Summit 2019: Registration now open

Hi Paulo,

As much as I am concerned about the situation between WMPT and AffCom, and
as much as I would like to see more transparency from AffCom, I would like
to request that those subjects be kept separate from this thread which is
primarily about a conference. Also, WikimediaAnnounce-l is for
announcements, and I think that discussion of the situation between WMPT
and AffCom is generally appropriate for Wikimedia-l but not
WikimediaAnnounce-l.

If you would like to discuss the WMPT and AffCom situation further then I
request that you start a separate thread on Wikimedia-l or resume writing
in a previous Wikimedia-l thread that was focused on that topic.

Thank you,

Pine

Paulo Santos Perneta
Hello Pine,

Sorry, I didn't wanted to mess up this thread, it was just a quick followup
correcting that we may be able to carry on those events despite the
suspension, but indeed it's not related to the Summit anymore (and thinking
better, possibly of very limited interest for the people here in the list,
unless they have some interest on Russian culture and Portugal - in that
case they're very welcome to join this project, just contact me in
private). The reply to WikimediaAnnounce-l was kind of automatic, I really
had no idea what to do with it, next time I'll remove that. Thanks for the
heads up.
