Unconference session proposal by @Bmueller and @Deskana.
Date & time: The session is planned for Tuesday, 10th. We'll give an update as soon as the session is scheduled for a time slot!
After conducting a workshop serie on advanced search with about 40 participants, WMDE is plannig to make special search parameters such as "incategory" or "intitle" accessible via the advanced search field (T143310).

The Discovery Department is currently looking into the ability to provide search results from other Wikimedia projects within the same language (commonly named cross-wiki or inter-wiki searches).

Both projects require redesigning the special search page.
In this session, Dan & Birgit are going to introduce to both projects. We'll then invite everyone to discuss ideas on a good structure for the special search page and the selection of different options.
