Joint stand application together with wikis-oriented communities

XWiki, DokuWiki and Foswiki

The Tiki community would like to send a joint application for a booth together with other wikis-oriented communities, like we did very successfully last year and the year before Fosdem2016 Fosdem2017 with the Xwiki community and the DokuWiki community.

The reasons are:

  • it is important and it is required to have at least 2 people on the booth. We plan to be about 6 but there are a lot of conferences and booths we want to see, too.
  • There is a lot of competition for booths so a joint application has more chances of being accepted.
  • The more, the merrier. After all, we also travel to Brussels in order to meet people.

Current status

Jean-Marc Libs (Jyhem) has contacted the XWiki, the DokuWiki and the MediaWiki communities.
Anyone else I should contact?

Stand organisation

Since we are 4 projects and there is only one table (!) and CiviCRM have one table beside ours, we are currently discussing how we could share space in a way everybody likes.

Thank you Alasdair for accepting the CiviCRM booth at FOSDEM.

@Jean-Marc: we need two chairs and space for a laptop with external monitor. Behind us we will have one roll-up banner. As you know, that will take up most of the space of our booth. Nevertheless, I guess with respect for each other's project and some common sense, we will find a win-win solution.
Can you discuss this with your wiki colleagues? Then we can Skype about it.

@Alasdair: is an extra table possible?

Kind regards,


After some mails and phone calls, I feel we could make it with the following arrangement:
  • The « Wikis oriented communities » table would have Xwiki, Tiki and Wikisuite together.
  • The «CiviCRM» would share some room for Foswiki. Probably 1/3, but details to be defined when stands are set up on saturday morning.

Also, we will need to find extra chairs.
