About the event
WikiCite 2017 <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2017>is a 3-day
conference, summit and hack day to be hosted in Vienna, Austria, on May
23-25, 2017. It expands on efforts started last year at WikiCite 2016
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2016/Report>to design a
central bibliographic repository, as well as tools and strategies to
improve information quality and verifiability in Wikimedia projects.
Our goal is to bring together Wikimedia contributors, data modelers,
information and library science experts, software engineers, designers
and academic researchers who have experience working with Wikipedia's
citations and bibliographic data.
WikiCite 2017 will be a venue to:
Day 1. (Conference) – present progress on existing work and
initiatives for citations and bibliographic data across Wikimedia
Day 2. (Summit) – discuss technical, social, outreach and policy
Day 3. (Hack) – get together to build, based on new ideas and
