Thank you all!

This is a great list of talks, and I have signed up for them all.

If you find them interesting as well, we encourage you to sign up too, to help the reviewers determine overall interest.

Other related submissions from our product group include:

All these sessions should make for a really interesting conference!

I've also added these two editor engagement-related submissions:
  • What the %$*! do we know? How (and why) to run an experiment on Wikipedia. [1]  
  • Forget the tutorials, be bold! How one feature has attracted thousands of new editors [2]

Hi folks,

For those of you going to Wikimania 2013 in Hong Kong this August, here are some of the editor engagement and product sessions submitted by our team so far.

If you're interested in attending any of these sessions, please sign your name at the bottom of the submission pages, to help reviewers decide which sessions are of high interest.  

We'd also be grateful for your feedback about these proposals, so we can make any final edits before tomorrow's submission deadline. 

Also, has anyone else submitted other editor engagement sessions that you'd like to share with this group? 

Thanks to everyone who helped prepare these submissions. I look forward to some great sessions and more productive interactions at this year's Wikimania!

To be continued,


P.S.: This year, we are experimenting with a new 'roundtable' format: these creative workshops will invite community members to review and brainstorm feature ideas on topics like messaging and multimedia, in a highly collaborative 70 min. session that combines guided discussions with hands-on concept development, to help inform our product plans. Stay tuned for more on that front ...
