As many of you may know Bengali Wikipedia completed 10 Years on March 2014. To celebrate this historic milestone the Bengali Wikimedia Community has planned to meet over for two days Bengali Wikipedia 10th Anniversary Celebration Conference during January  9 and 10, 2015 in Kolkata. We have also undertaken a series of On-Wiki and Off-Wiki activities. It will the gathering of users of two nation ( India & Bangladesh) and well wishers of Bengali Wikimedia projects. Please click here to go to the official page to see more details.  .

This conference is our first attempt to invite and host selected members from other Indian Wikipedia communities. We are planning to invite our friends and well-wishers from most of all active Indic  language wiki communities in  India to this most auspicious occasion hosted by Bengali Wikimedia community! We are also planning to arrange few 30 scholarships for non-Bengali Indic Wikimedians who are interested in participating in this event. With all these, we expect coming  year’s  conference shall become the largest outreach program any Indian wiki community have ever attempted.

As a part of Conference, we are organizing edit-a-thons, a conference of students interested in Wikimedia projects, a meetup of youth interested in Wikimedia projects, photography contest  and Workshop/Hackathon.
