Description

→FRANÇAIS
The Wikimania logo rises over a stylized Montréal skyline.Wikimania is the annual conference celebrating Wikipedia and its sister free knowledge projects with three days of conferences, discussions, meetups, training, and workshops.

Hundreds of volunteers and Free Knowledge leaders from around the world gather to discuss issues, report on new projects and approaches, and exchange ideas.

Themes of the conference include the advancement of Free Knowledge, the role of academic and cultural institutions within the movement, privacy and rights, and the role of technology to further those objectives. Wikimania 2017 will also feature a deeper look about the role of the Movement within the Francophonie, and a number of program elements focusing on advancement of French within the projects.

Beyond the main event, there are other related events: the Hackathon where the technical community around the Wikimedia projects join together to work and contribute, and the Sourcethon where veterans and newcomers alike join forces to preserve and make available historical written documents.
