The Research team will have 4 representatives during Wikimania 2019. This task captures the planning of activities for the team pre/during/post Wikimania.
**Why are we attending Wikimania?**
In no specific order:
* To learn about ongoing or new community initiatives.
* To build stronger connections with the community of volunteers, affiliates, user groups, and chapters.
* To learn about the needs of the communities and turn them to research questions when relevant.
* To help address community's research needs on-the-spot (especially through Wikimedia hackathon)
* To share the updates about Research's learnings since last Wikimania.
