We are curating the Education & Science Community track of WikidataCon
2021, which will take place on Sunday, October 31 from 11:00 to 18:00 UTC
(check the time in your time zone here:
https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1635678034) and you are invited to submit a
proposal to the conference!
Submissions are open until October 20, 2021 (midnight anywhere in the
world), but we encourage you to submit a proposal as soon as you can, as we
are rolling admissions and expect the Education & Science Community track
to fill up fast.
We’re seeking submissions from anyone who’s incorporated Wikidata in
education, science and research, and working with academics, universities,
educational institutions (K-12 or informal education) and research
Since this is an all-virtual conference, WikidataCon 2021 is a great
opportunity for people who have not previously attended to join! We
particularly encourage you to submit if you’ve never presented at
WikidataCon in past years.

In case you’re not familiar with it, WikidataCon
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikidataCon_2021> is an event held
every 2 years coinciding with Wikidata’s birthday and is a time for the
Wikidata community to come together to learn from each other. This year it
will be held virtually and runs from October 29-October 31, 2021. It’s a
great way to share your work with the rest of the Wikidata community and
meet and learn from other Wikidatans.
Please let us know if you have any questions, or if there is any way we can
help you with the submission process.
