Note from main conference organizer

Hey Wiki Project Med!

If you tell me how many people you expect, I can set the space aside for you and include your schedule in the programme.  :-)  ­– Coren(talk) 17:52, 24 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

I am sure 50 would probably do it. Not sure how many we can expect. Doc James (talk) 23:54, 30 March 2017 (UTC)Reply

Call for submissions

I just cleared the schedule. This is a wiki open event and in wiki spirit I would like to propose keeping a bit of time for open submissions before posting a completely filled schedule. Some people asked me if they could talk, but the schedule was full, so I cleared it because I expected that the intent really was to have the schedule be just a draft.

I shifted presentations to a corral where they can be discussed and at a later time, selected presentations can go on the final schedule. I hope that we have time for everything but I am sure that there is not time for a 30-minute slot for everything. Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:53, 28 February 2017 (UTC)Reply

User:Bluerasberry We can keep shuffling but I have given people assurances that they can speak. Who else do you have who would like to present? Doc James (talk) 23:53, 30 March 2017 (UTC)Reply
@Doc James: I am done here. The deadline was 30 March and I had anticipated that being the end, so I was not expecting to do more. I have not made assurances to anyone and can defer scheduling to anyone who has a priority. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:11, 31 March 2017 (UTC)Reply
Okay User:Bluerasberry. The amount of time avaliable for submitting presentation has also been extended for Wikimania. Doc James (talk)
Hi! I thought that the presentation on WikiJournal or rather WikiJournal of Medicine would be included in the subject sessions. I see that it has not been done so. Any scope of including it? Diptanshu Das (talk) 15:59, 10 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
I need to figure out how to get this Wiki to notify me of changes. Yes Diptanshu will put this down for a lighting talk. Who will present? Doc James (talk) 22:16, 14 April 2017 (UTC)Reply


Can you guys arrange videotaping of the conference for later viewing on YouTube, etc.? I would like to watch the presentations. 10:45, 20 March 2017 (UTC)Reply

That is an excellent idea. We need a volunteer interested in taking this on. Doc James (talk) 23:54, 30 March 2017 (UTC)Reply

Better late than never?

Hi. I realize i am very late to the game here but, as the Wikimedian in Residence at the National Library of Wales i have just been successful in securing £40,000 from the Welsh Government to run a 9 month Wici-Health project aimed at engaging the health sector in Wales with Wikimedia, and securing the creation of 3000 Welsh language Wiki articles on important health and well being issues.

I am hoping to come to Wikimania and would love to be involved in this program. Is it too late to try and get a slot for a lightning talk? Best Jason.nlw (talk) 20:46, 31 May 2017 (UTC)Reply

User:Jason.nlw Sure. You can have 5 minutes to present :-) Doc James (talk) 23:32, 31 May 2017 (UTC)Reply

Proposed talks

While the program currently has more proposals than 30-minute timeslots not all the proposals have been confirmed. Anyone with a talk to propose should do so here. There will be some time for everyone who wants to present, with 5-minute lightning talks, shared panel sessions, and 30-minute slots.

Proposed additions

Deadline for submissions: April 10th, 2017 (notification of acceptance May 1st, 2017). Please list them below with the name of the proposed speaker.

  1. Medical school outreach in New York. Can combine with any institutional partnership using Wikipedia editathons or community recruitment. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:24, 27 March 2017 (UTC)Reply
  2. Visiting scholar program, a pilot at Wikipedia:Cochrane/Global Ageing with support from Wiki Education Foundation. Can combine with Cochrane updates. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:24, 27 March 2017 (UTC)Reply
  1. Blue can you provide the proposed presenter? I am sure Sydney would be happy to have them join her. By the way JenOttawa is already going to be speaking about the new editor experience. Doc James (talk) 21:43, 30 March 2017 (UTC)Reply


I'm not sure if I should ask this, but I intend to go to this event and want to know exactly what room in Le Centre Sheraton this event will occur in. Everymorning (talk) 23:31, 7 August 2017 (UTC)Reply
