Saturday 26th morningEdit

Because we are aware that two days of conference, attending to sessions and plenty of social interactions can be pretty intense, we would like to offer the participants opportunities to relax, clean their minds and reconnect to their inner selves. That's why we are offering two sessions on Saturday morning, before the conference starts:

Time Event Location Description
8:45-9:45 Easy yoga session Conference venue, room Curie on 3rd floor After one intense day of attending to sessions and networking, and before starting the second one, we're offering you a moment to relax, empty your mind, and reconnect with your body.

This yoga session is a gentle introduction, no need to have practiced yoga before. The moves will be easy and accessible to everyone, focused on breathing, relaxing and being conscious of your inner self.

No preparation needed, you should just come at 8:40 wearing comfy clothes. The rest will be provided in the room.

8:45-9:45 Guided meditation session Conference venue, room Pasteur on 3rd floor After one intense day of attending to sessions and networking, and before starting the second one, we're offering you a moment to relax, empty your mind, and get a lot of energy to jump into the new day.

This session is an introduction to meditation technics, well-known for relaxing the body, reducing the stress and balancing the emotions. We will experience together simple and efficient exercises to start the day with consciousness and good energy. A calm and relaxing session, designed for beginners and also profitable for more experienced people.

The session will be inclusive, respecting everyone's individuality and space, so you can enjoy a great moment and dive back into the conference.

No preparation needed, you should just come at 8:40 wearing comfy clothes. The rest will be provided in the room.

No registration is needed. For both sessions, we can accept a maximum of 20 participants. Please be in front of the room a few minutes before the session starts (8:40).


Saturday eveningEdit

After the closing session, we want to give you the opportunity to keep chatting with your new contacts and close all the interesting discussions that you may have started. That's why we are offering you to spend the evening together.

Dinner will be served at the venue from 18:30 to 20:00. After that, we will go and have a drink at a very nice location: Die Alte Pumpe, a charming place keeping the memory of the industrial era in Berlin, with a bit of a steampunk atmosphere. This meetup is only open to WikidataCon participants (we will check the badge at the entrance). We will offer you vouchers for alcoholic drinks and free unlimited non-alcoholic drinks.
