SMWCon, or the Semantic MediaWiki Conference, now known as the MediaWiki Users and Developers Conference (MWCon), is an event that serves users, developers, and enthusiasts of MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki. This includes corporate users, academics, and others interested in the software.

Traditionally held in Europe during the fall, the conference was renamed in 2024 to encompass a broader scope, combining SMWCon and EMWCon into one comprehensive gathering (SMWCon + EMWCon = MWCon). It is a bi-annual event every year in spring (North America) and fall (Europe).

Please refer to the official conference webpages for more details on the conferences and related events for opportunities to present MediaWiki and Semantic-MediaWiki-related work.
