Katowice is a vibrant city with a unique blend of industrial history and modern attractions. A hub for museums, art, music, and more, Katowice has lots to do in walking distance, and is also centrally located within the larger region and well-connected to train lines and airports.

For those meeting us in Katowice, there will be activities around the city starting on 6 August. From 7-10 August, there will be programming all day beginning at 9:00am local time, with activities such as the opening ceremony, poster session, and closing ceremony and party happening in the evenings. August 11 will be a departure day with some activities on offer. The full program will be published soon, but you can read more about the program outline on the Wikimania Wiki

Eventyay is an open source, multilingual virtual event platform where participants will be able to browse the program, create their own schedules, navigate easily between livestreamed sessions and chat with each other and conference organizers. 70% of Wikimania 2023 survey respondents agreed that eventyay was easy to navigate and use, and the Core Organizing Team is further building out eventyay features to create a more seamless virtual experience, including increased discoverability of chat, more intuitive program navigation, and more. 

Whether you’ll be joining in person or tuning in online, we are looking forward to welcoming you to Wikimania Katowice!

Note: the in-person ticket is subsidized by the Wikimedia Foundation and costs $100 USD, which covers opening and closing events, plus lunches on the core conference days. Scholarship recipients will receive codes to register for the in-person event. The online conference is fully funded by the Foundation and will continue to remain free for attendees.
