In partnership with the Wellcome Trust, Wikimedia UK are hosting a two-day conference, around the intersection of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects and Wikimedia (Wikipedia and its sister projects).
Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd September 2015
This is prompted by the growing interest in Wikipedia, Wikidata, Commons, and other Wikimedia projects as platforms for opening up the scientific process.
- Dame Wendy Hall: Professor of Computer Science, University of Southampton
- Peter Murray Rust: Reader, University of Cambridge
- For other speakers, see the draft programme on the conference page.
When & Where
Wikimedia UK is the Wikimedia chapter covering the United Kingdom. We exist to help collect, develop and distribute freely licensed knowledge (and other educational, cultural and historic material). We do this by bringing the Wikimedia community in the UK together, and by building links with UK-based cultural institutions, universities, charities and other bodies. We also represent UK-based Wikimedians to the Wikimedia Foundation and the global Wikimedia movement.
Wikimedia UK is a registered charity. We are supported entirely by voluntary donations (principally through the annual Wikimedia fundraiser). Please note that we are a separate organization from the Wikimedia Foundation, and have no control over Wikipedia.
