To allow the conference to grow more smoothly, it seems sensible to pool the years of knowledge that we have into a body that oversees the Wikimania process from beginning to end in its yearly cycle. A permanent Wikimania committee would oversee the bids, handle jury selection for bid review, and provide continuity of experience and mentoring to each year's organizing team.

Purpose and process

For details, see Wikimania Committee/Charter.

To ensure that the legacy of knowledge is effectively and efficiently passed on to the organising teams and to ensure a smooth and successful Wikimania.

This includes:

  • Setting Wikimania policy
  • Soliciting and reviewing proposals to host
  • Conference oversight and review
  • Best practice development
