Call for Proposal
WikidataCon, the world’s largest Wikidata exchange conference, focuses not only on Wikidata itself, but also on the technology that extends beyond Wikidata’s platform – e.g. : Wikibase and the Linked Open Data Web, the main focal points extended from our discussions.
The theme of the year, “Collaboration Across Boundaries”, highlights the cross-disciplinary data exchange, with a greater emphasis on how local data can be linked to international dialogue. In this year’s Call for Proposals, we emphasize the diversity of data and how it has been presented by Wikidata and Wikibase, which then includes, but is not restricted to local languages, cultures, folklore, arts, and knowledge.
Chinese (zh) and
English (en) are the primary languages spoken at this conference. We encourage participants to include their mother tongue contents, in either Chinese or English submissions.
We also welcome academic proposals in this round. If any research topic is to be published during WikidataCon, we will arrange a professor of this field to review the submission.
Please Note: Academic research sessions are limited to On-site sessions in Taiwan only.
Before you submit
The event is divided into a Taiwan on-site session and an international online session. The Taiwan session will be held between October 28 10:00 - 17:00 - October 29 10:00 - 17:00 (GMT+8), meanwhile, the online session is available between October 28 to October 30, 05:00 (GMT+8).
Unless you are able to join the on-site event in Taiwan, your contribution will be an online pre-recorded video. Sessions held on-site in the venue in Taiwan will also be broadcasted online.
Please select the time zone that works best for you. Even if you choose your venue location to be in Taiwan, you can still present your talk online.
All presentations will be recorded, live-streamed, and made available online, with a CC-BY license after the event. By submitting your talk, you agree to license your content under a CC-BY SA license.
WikidataCon 2023 will NOT provide any transport or accommodation scholarships for participants or speakers.
All proposals please adhere to Wikimedia Universal Code of Conduct.
