All participants are encouraged to suggest topics for our Open Space track, which will be an ad-hoc opportunity to discuss and present ideas at Wikimania without a fixed schedule; and to build discussion of your work and ideas on the conference wiki.
This year we have three tracks of Open Space Topics, "Lightning Talks", "Bofs" and "Exhibition artists Bofs".
- Lightning Talks are 5-minute talks by various people combined in a set of around 10 talks in one session.
- Bofs are places for all communities to gather, chat and exchange experiences more informally.
- Exhibition artists Bofs are for those artists participated in our exhibition sessions to gather and chat.
Each track consist of some topics, the organizer (facilitator) of each topic should write down a abstract or summary of what was and will be discussed, and all tracks should have their own topics or agendas and announce that on the conference wiki before it begin, then invite people to participate.
The idea of the open space tracks is let participants manage your own agenda, based on previous experience, many interesting and attractive new ideas and suggestions have been born through the open space track, please do sign on your idea and join our event.
Btw, one of the other key spirit of open space is that only those interested in the topic should participate, if you feel not interested in certain topics, just leave and join another one!
