What is WikiConference North America?

Wikiconference-na-logo-green.png

WikiConference North America is the annual conference of Wikimedia enthusiasts and volunteers in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

The 2018 conference will take place in Columbus, Ohio on October 18-21. Our main host is the Ohio State University Libraries, and planning is underway by the WikiConference North America User Group and partners.

Activities

October 18 and 19 will include our pre-conference activities, which include a hackathon, tech demos, and our Culture Crawl—a day-long event where we collaborate with local museums, libraries, and cultural institutions to host free backstage tours, edit-a-thons, and more. These crawls are a fantastic opportunity for conference attendees to experience the local culture, as well as collaborate with local institutions to improve Wikipedia.

October 20 and 21 will be our main conference, which includes community presentations, round-table discussions, panels, and lightning talk sessions.

Registration

Registration details will come soon.
