I am glad to inform you that WMDE will be hosting the next Wikimedia
Conferences (2015, 2016, 2017) in Berlin. In December, WMCH has pulled
back from hosting the conference in Zurich. Together with the WMF –
the funders of the event – we now have determined the location for the
next couple of years, in order to put an end to the exhausting
discussions around the logistics. The next conference will be held in
Berlin on 15-17 May 2015 . Criteria for invitation will be
announced in the next couple of weeks.
In the previous years, WMCON has always been kind of a monolith, a
one-shot instead of being an episode of a series. From now on, an
essential effort will go into the time between the episodes. WMDE’s
goal is to secure sustainable involvement of all participants before,
during and after the event as well as to build bridges to future
events (Wikimania, regional conferences, next WMCONs). Of course, we
will be liaising closely with the programme committee, WMF and the
We will update the meta pages and provide you with more information soon.
