Hello Stian,

The focus of the event is exclusively Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects.

All tracks, keynotes and workshops are directly related to Wikimedia movement and the general idea is to motivate other countries to organize local editions of the event based in our model started last year. 

This year, the international edition will be in Niteroi - Rio de Janeiro and probably the next edition will be in Porto - Portugal, moving the event each year to a different country with support from a local wikimedia chapter and a local university, stimulating the development of scientific research on Wikipedia in every corner of the planet.

Best regards!

Hello my friends,

After a very productive week attendin Wikimedia Conference in Berlin and 3 days visiting our fellows from Portugal and many Portuguese universities in Lisboa, Porto and Coimbra we finally confirmed the 1st International Wikipedia Scientific Conference (2nd Brazilian edition). 

That project was created by the Wiki Education Brasil last year and was discussed with Wikimedia Portugal, Wikimedia Spain and many other chapters in Berlin. 

We are finishing the composition of the international scientific committee and the general organization committee during the next weeks.

The event will be in Niterói - Rio de Janeiro in November 8-10 2017, organized in partnership with the Federal Fluminense University.

To have global coverage, we will need your help to promote the conference in your country and universities.

Our team is producing press releases and printed materials (A4 and A3) with information regarding the event and the call for papers.

Translation help will be appreciated!
