Colleagues, if you are a librarian who is interested in how bibliographic data can make a difference in Wikimedia projects I urge you to consider applying to attend this conference. I am on the organizing committee for this conference and am happy to answer any questions you might have.

Best,

Merrilee

Subject: [External] [wikicite] WikiCite 2018 applications (including travel funding requests) are now open

We're thrilled to announce that applications to attend WikiCite 2018 are now open<https://goo.gl/forms/hV6rXRCdQ3fAK9v13>.

[WikiCite 2018.png]


WikiCite 2018<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2018> is a 3-day conference, summit, and hack day dedicated to the vision of creating an open repository of bibliographic data to support the citation and fact-checking needs of Wikimedia projects, and possibly, to serve as an open infrastructure for research, education, and information quality across the web.

WikiCite 2018 expands efforts started with WikiCite 2016<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2016> and WikiCite 2017<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2017> to explore these possibilities by leveraging Wikidata—Wikimedia’s structured knowledge base—and to develop open source tools to improve citation management and verifiability strategies for free knowledge. Since then, the amount of bibliographic data in Wikidata has grown exponentially, allowing us to glimpse the possibilities of a truly open, universal library and citation graph, while also exposing significant social and technical challenges.

This year presents a pivotal moment for WikiCite, wherein its emergent community — consisting of Wikimedians, librarians, LODLAM practitioners, software engineers, data scientists, and open knowledge advocates — must grapple with possible growth scenarios, address critical gaps, and set a course for the project’s future<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiCite/Roadmap>. If you are passionate about tending Wikipedia’s root system (references!), or believe in the broader possibilities of contributing to the bibliographic commons, WikiCite 2018 presents an unprecedented opportunity to meet fellow dreamers and hackers, and to help shape this vital effort.

This year’s event will be hosted at the David Brower Center<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Brower_Center> in Berkeley, California, USA, November 27-29, 2018. Applications to attend the event (including travel support requests<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2018/Travel_funding>) are open until September 17, 2018:

We hope you will join us!
