Have you ever thought about the Wikimedia movement in terms of sustainable development? How free knowledge could have the potential to radically change peoples’ lives? Or how we through cooperation, innovation and passion actually could build a better world? Perhaps you haven’t, but we want to think about it and start a conversation.

The theme of Wikimania 2019 will be: Stronger together: Wikimedia, Free Knowledge and the Sustainable Development Goals. The theme will permeate the program and guide our communication, cooperation and outward work.

Program design

More info: Program design

As Wikimania has grown and matured over the years, the physical format has remained relatively constant. Traditionally, a central program committee makes a general ‘call for submissions’; the vast majority of submissions received are for the ‘presentation’ format; and approximately two-thirds of all submissions must be rejected due to time/space constraints. Once the submissions are reviewed and accepted, they are scheduled into sessions with other talks on a similar topic.

This year, the Wikimania Stockholm organising team are trying something new...

Rather than a centrally-controlled program weighted towards individual, retrospective presentations and a passive audience, we believe that this year’s conference theme requires a format that is future-oriented, collaborative, active, and focused on practical problem-solving. The outcomes targeted should be those that can be most efficiently achieved at in person events, namely: practical training, learning, idea-sharing and cross-cultural collaboration.

This year’s program will feature a series of parallel Spaces, a.k.a. "tracks" or "symposia", each focused on a particular topic area (examples below), with its own dedicated room in the venue, its own leaders, and a small team to help build and promote their specific program.

Rooms

At the University of Stockholm, the conference will be using four buildings. The rooms have all been named after Nobel prize laureates of various disciplines and from various countries. There are also many meeting points around and among the buildings for impromptu gatherings.

Related activities

A map of the conference buildings and rooms. Click to enlarge.

Before or after the main conference days there are also several related activities that will take place outside of the conference venue. These activities are free to join. They include the Cultural Crawl, City tours and some other activities which may be found here. You may revisit that page to find additional information the closer we get to the conference. If you have any proposals for related activities, feel free to propose them at the talk page. For the related activities, you do not have to register for the pre-conference days as they take place outside of the venue.

Community curated schedules

The following are community-made alternative formats, or curated specific-interest groupings, of the program.
Note: These are not necessarily maintained to match any changes in the official program.
Search keywords: calendar export, ical, offline, Android app.

Meetups

There are also multiple meetups planned during Wikimania 2019. These include, but are not limited to such topics as a quick and dirty course on Northern Sámi, using incubator projects to revitalize Taiwan's Endangered Aboriginal languages, an Iberocoop meetup, and a meetup for people on the spectrum.

Preconference

The pre-conference days runs from Wednesday 14 to Thursday 15 August. The pre-conference activities on the University Campus include two specific activities: the hackathon and the learning days. In order to take part in these activities, you have to register for the pre-conference days.
