Wikimedia Conference 2015/Who should register?

The eligibility criteria for participating at the Wikimedia Conference 2015 have been aligned to the Affiliates’ Agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation. Please note that the criteria have changed compared to last year.

Chapters, Thematic Organizations and User Groups must have shown signs of recent activity AND be up-to-date on their reporting by the eligibility deadline (February 28). Moreover, affiliates need to have been officially recognized by the Wikimedia Foundation before February 01, 2015. Please check the overview of the eligibility statuses before taking further steps.

Chapters and Thematic Organizations can send two delegates; or up to four, if they have paid staff; User Groups can send one delegate.

Affiliates are asked to only send delegates that are well-informed in goings-on at the affiliate, able to confidently answer questions about it and share experience from their group. They should also be empowered to commit their group to involvement in proposed projects or initiatives. We will publish all participants’ names on the Meta page shortly after their registration in order to help affiliates check that only their selected representatives have registered. Please make sure to check this page regularly.
