CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

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 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 a successful workshop in 2015, 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 technology and initiatives to grow content, quality, diversity, and
   participation
   -

   collaborative content creation
   -

   consensus-finding and conflict resolution on editorial issues
   -

   content consumption on Wikipedia
   -

   participation in discussions and their dynamics
   -

   collaborative task management
   -

   evolution of hierarchies
   -

   Wikipedia as a sensor for real-world events, culture, etc.
   -

   demographics of Wikipedia readers and editors
   -

   engagement and incentivization of editors
   -

   uses of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects for AI and NLP
   applications


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).
