A forum bringing together researchers exploring all aspects of Wikimedia projects. Held virtually as a standalone event, May 11, 2023.
We invite contributions to the 10th edition (!) of Wiki Workshop, which will take place virtually on May 11, 2023 (tentatively 12:00-19:00 UTC). Wiki Workshop is the largest Wikimedia research event of the year, aimed at bringing together researchers who study all aspects of Wikimedia projects (including, but not limited to, Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikisource, and Wiktionary) as well as Wikimedia developers, affiliate organizations, and volunteer editors. Co-organized by the Wikimedia Foundation’s Research team and members of the Wikimedia research community, the workshop facilitates a direct pathway for exchanging ideas between the organizations that serve Wikimedia projects and the researchers actively studying them. New this year: Building on the successful experiences of organizing Wiki Workshop in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 and based on feedback from authors and participants over the years, we are introducing a few updates to the research track of the workshop for 2023:
Topics include, but are not limited to:
This year’s Wiki Workshop solicits extended abstracts (PDF format, maximum 2 pages, including references). Submissions that exceed the 2-page limit will be automatically rejected. Authors may include 1 additional page with figures and/or tables (including captions) only. Initial submissions require names and affiliations of authors, 5 keywords, a title, abstract, and a main text outlining the contribution, methods, findings, and impact of the work, whichever is relevant. Submissions will be non-archival and as a result may have already been published, under review, or ongoing research. All submissions will be reviewed by multiple members of the Wiki Workshop Program Committee. The names of the authors will be revealed to the reviewers, whereas reviewers will remain anonymous to authors. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to present their research in a pre-recorded oral presentation with dedicated time for live Q&A on May 11, 2023. Accepted abstracts may be shared on the website prior to the event. The template for abstracts can be found here. Please review our Privacy Statement before submitting your abstract on EasyChair.
