Event Details

Tech@State: Wiki.Gov is going to be part of Wikimania 2012, scheduled for July 12-13 in Washington, DC.  We'll host the Wikis and the Public Sector track of Wikimania 2012.  Taking place over two days, Tech@State: Wiki.Gov starts with the Wikimania 2012 Opening Ceremony on July 12 at 9:00 AM at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium and is followed by five sessions at the Betts Theater in the Marvin Center.  Please join us to hear discussions that center on how wikis and their associated technologies can be used: 

  • In the federal government to collaborate internally, and share information across agencies;??
  • At the local level to engage citizens and provide greater access to a variety of information; and
  • By research institutions and civil society organizations to improve collaboration.

Like all Tech@State events, registration is free.  A ticket for Tech@State:Wiki.Gov will allow entry to the Wikimania 2012 Opening Session and the five Tech@State:Wiki.Gov sessions.  If you want to attend more of the Wikimania 2012 sessions, you can register here (Note: There is a fee for Wikimania 2012 registration).

We know that some of you will not be able to attend both days and have therefore created three ticket options depending on the days that you will be at the conference (Thursday only, Friday only, both days).  Please select the correct option and help us ensure that as many people as possible can participate in the conference.

A summary of the Tech@State:Wiki.Gov agenda is included below.  See our website – tech.state.gov for a complete agenda with more info on each presentation and speaker.
