*About the workshop:*

Wikipedia is one of the most popular sites on the Web, a main source of
knowledge for a large fraction of Internet users, and one of the very few
projects that make not only their content but also many activity logs
available to the public. Furthermore, other Wikimedia projects, such as
Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons, have been created to share other types of
knowledge with the world for free. For a variety of reasons (quality and
quantity of content, reach in many languages, process of content
production, availability of data, etc.) such projects have become important
objects of study for researchers across many subfields of the computational
and social sciences, such as social network analysis, artificial
intelligence, linguistics, natural language processing, social psychology,
education, anthropology, political science, human–computer interaction, and
cognitive science.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers exploring all
aspects of Wikimedia projects 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 2015-2019, we
aim to continue facilitating a direct pathway for exchanging ideas between
the organization that coordinates Wikimedia projects and the researchers
interested in studying them.
