Hi all,


In response to several requests, we have extended the submission deadline
for the Wiki Workshop @ WWW 2017 by one week. It is now on *January 31,
2017* (end of day anywhere on Earth).


Note that this deadline applies only if authors want their contribution to
appear as part of the conference proceedings. If they don't want their
contribution to appear in the proceedings, they should submit to the later
deadline (February 26, 2017).



*We emphasize that we explicitly encourage the submission of preliminary
work in the form of extended abstracts (1 or 2 pages).*


We look forward to your submissions! If you have any further questions,
don't hesitate to contact us at [log in to unmask]

Wiki Workshop 2017

Held at *WWW 2017* (International World Wide Web Conference), Perth,
Australia, April 4, 2017


Workshop webpage:

http://www.wikiworkshop.org
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers exploring all
aspects of Wikimedia websites such as Wikipedia, Wikidata, and Commons.
With members of the Wikimedia Foundation's Research team on the organizing
committee and with the experience of successful workshops in 2015
<http://snap.stanford.edu/wiki-icwsm15/> and 2016
<http://snap.stanford.edu/wikiworkshop2016/>, we aim to continue
facilitating a direct pathway for exchanging ideas between the organization
that operates Wikimedia websites and the researchers interested in studying
them.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

   - new technologies and initiatives to grow content, quality, diversity,
   and participation across Wikimedia projects
   - use of bots, algorithms, and crowdsourcing strategies to curate,
   source, or verify content and structured data
   - bias in content and gaps of knowledge
   - diversity of Wikimedia editors and users
   - understanding editor motivations, engagement models, and incentives
   - Wikimedia consumer motivations and their needs: readers, researchers,
   tool/API developers
   - innovative uses of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects for AI and
   NLP applications
   - consensus-finding and conflict resolution on editorial issues
   - participation in discussions and their dynamics
   - dynamics of content reuse across projects and the impact of policies
   and community norms on reuse
   - privacy
   - collaborative content creation (unstructured, semi-structured, or
   structured)
   - collaborative task management
   - innovative uses of Wikimedia projects' content and consumption
   patterns as sensors for real-world events, culture, etc.

Papers should be 1 to 8 pages long and will be published on the workshop
webpage and optionally (depending on the authors' choice) in the workshop
proceedings. Authors whose papers are accepted to the workshop will have
the opportunity to participate in a poster session.

We explicitly encourage the submission of preliminary work in the form of
extended abstracts (1 or 2 pages).
