=== Abstract ===
for program committee, approx. 1 page
''With this talk we introduce openZIM for those who haven't heard about it and give a short overview over the history of Offline Wikipedia in general to provide a common basis and an understanding of the issues when dealing with huge data chunks such as Wikipedia content. The main part of the talk is focused on these issues and how openZIM has addressed these. A part of this will involve the ZIM internal structures, tools and the zimlib library. The goal is that attendants are able to understand how ZIM works, where implementational details can be found in case the file format should be implemented in any other programming language as well as enabling to work with the zimlib which can be used in any C++ application to make use of the ZIM format directly.''
