Submissions! : The International Wikimania Conference 2012 DC

Thursday, July 12, 2012 - 12:00am to Saturday, July 14, 2012 - 12:00am

Wikimania conferences provide unique opportunities for the Wikimedia community and its projects (including WikipediaWikibooksWikinewsWiktionaryWikispeciesWikimedia Commons, and Wikimedia) to come together, share their common goals, and develop better ways to work together on an international level. The Wikimania 2012 program structure is designed to create multiple opportunities for conference participants to actively engage with the subject matter, the environment, and, most importantly, each other. Washington, D.C, can play an important role in Wikimania 2012 as a locale that gathers interest in government, culture, media, and academia around the general goals of the Wikimania conference series.

In accordance with these goals and themes, the program will include traditional conference offerings such as paper presentations, tutorials, panels, and poster sessions; provide lounge space and breaks throughout for participants to gather; and innovate with an unconference day for attendees to design their own schedule and participation around common interests. Submissions will be reviewed and selected in advance by the program committee. Attendees are welcome to present in the open space track of the conference, regardless of whether their submitted presentations were accepted.

The eighth annual Wikimania will be held between 12th and 14th July, 2012 in Washington D.C. For more information, please visit the main site.
