The process for the selection of the location of Wikimania 2008 will occur as follows:

  • Establishment of the judging criteria
    A judging grid will be established with a certain number of criteria, used to determine a total number of point for each city
  • Weighting of the judging criteria
    Each criteria will be given a maximum number of points it can be attributed so as to make sure a certain balance in individual jury votes is balanced.
  • The jury will confirm the list of running cities following the published schedule.
  • The jury will follow the development of bids and provide input when/where needed.
  • Members of the jury will be present at a public IRC meeting with the bidding teams. All interested community members are invited to participate.
  • The jury will discuss and enter the Q&A phase, asking specific or general questions to the bidding cities for one week. Bidding teams are expected to answer the jury's questions. The jury will, during the Q&A period, vote and refine its votes on the aforementioned grid
  • Once the Q&A period is over, the jury will announce the winning city.
