Wikimania 2019 follows a slightly different format as compared to previous Wikimanias. 19 Spaces will form the core of the program, revolving around the theme of "Stronger Together: Wikimedia, Free Knowledge and the Sustainable Development Goals." So far, Michael Peter Edson from the Museum of the United Nations - UN Live is confirmed as keynote speaker! Calls for submissions closed on 9 June. More information on the submissions can be found here.
The Wikimania Organizing Team has secured a certain amount of rooms offered to special discounted accommodation rates. The amount is limited, so we advise you to book as early as possible, if you want to take part of those rates. In the travel guide, we advise those of you who wish to find your own accommodation where you should look.
The Wikimedia Foundation Scholarships Program is offering a limited number of scholarships to cover the cost of selected individuals' travel, conference registration fee, and accommodation to attend Wikimania using funding provided by the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF). Deadline for applying for scholarships was on 15 March 2019. Many chapters and user groups also provide scholarships – check with your national chapter or user group to see if they can help you.
