Chinese Wikimedia Conference 2006 (CWMC 2006)

The First Chinese Wikimedia Conference 2006 (CWMC 2006) is a regional conference organized by the Chinese community of Wikimedia Foundation for Wikimedia projects in Chinese. It serves as the first cross-territorial gathering for contributors of Chinese Wikimedia projects across Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and around the world. It also provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of Chinese Wikimedia projects in the region. CWMC 2006 will be held on August 26 and 27 in Hong Kong, three weeks after Wikimania 2006 in Boston. CWMC 2006 is co-hosted by Internet Society Hong Kong Chapter.

The goal of the conference, to be held in Hong Kong on Aug 26-27, 2006, will be to foster discussion and networking of Chinese wikipedia members from all over the world. The conference will serve\ as a forum for participants to share issues faced by Chinese wikimedia and digital public sphere in general, and to explore solutions through group engagement. The conference will also allow participants to improve their understanding of the editorial environment and related regulations globally that wikimedia faces. With the enthusiastic participation from wikipedia members worldwide, the conference will also encourage more participation of Chinese-using public and their knowledge and open content.

The two-day conference will include a keynote address by Mr Jimmy Wales, founder and chairman of the Board of Trustees of Wikemedia Foundation, and other panels and sessions by noted speakers from the region. Topics that will be covered include the content, technology, policy and social science issues around the Wikimedia project. Other invited speakers include Legislative Councilor Mr Sin Chung-Kai, Ms Christine Loh, etc.
