We are pleased to announce that, after two years of being an all-virtual conference, EMWCon [1] is going back to being an in-person event. It will be held at the Hilton Houston Westchase [2] in Houston, Texas on April 6-8.  Everyone who is attending is encouraged to stay at the Hilton, where we have a special group rate of $105/night; unless of course you live in Houston already.

For those who cannot attend in person for any reason, this will be a "hybrid" conference, with online/virtual capability that is intended to be as integrated into the conference as possible. All presentations will be available on Hopin live and we are accepting talks from remote speakers.  There is no cost for online/virtual attendance.

About EMWCon: EMWCon is a three-day conference featuring discussions of topics related to "Enterprise MediaWiki", i.e. the usage of MediaWiki software by companies, governments, and other organizations. The intended audience is anyone who uses, or would like to learn more about, MediaWiki.  There will be many opportunities to interact with others using and developing MediaWiki including presentations, workshops, breakout rooms and hackathon sessions.

To register/signup for EMWCon please add your name here [3]. And, to submit a talk, please add your talk proposal here [4]. The deadline for talk submissions is March 18th.

We hope to see you there—in Houston or on Hopin!
