This year’s Wikimania is focused on community activites. Therefore, local communities were planned to be given space in a Olympic National House style to present their activities, get feedback, and share knowledge. The German-language community is one of the most active ones within the Wikiverse. Several community members who attend the conference prepared talks and workshops for Wikimania to be held in a German-language house. Unfortunately, these presentations cannot be held during the main conference. Instead, community members from the German Wikipedia invite the Wikimania audience into their house for the Thursday pre-conference day.
