This document page was set up by the Program Committee of the GLAM-WIKI 2015 conference to inspire people for the call for proposals.

Primary focus of the GLAM-WIKI 2015 conference

Wikimedia has the goal to make knowledge accessible to everyone in the world. To achieve this we need to have an oversight of the worldwide similarities and differences in

  • the structure of the GLAM sector,
  • differences in copyright,
  • business models of GLAMs and artists,
  • the impact of cultural differences on the GLAM sector,
  • case studies of GLAM WIKI projects from around the world.

Structuring the proposals and program

  • Themes for the program include: Discovery, Collaboration, Remix, Capability and Exposure.
  • Perspectives to discuss the themes are Lessons learned (looking back), Under development/in process and Future developments.
  • Topics within the themes and perspectives that could be part of the program are in table 1.
  • Types of sessions - the way these topics can possibly be programmed - are in table 2.
