[Event] OpenScience Wikisprint at the Open Knowledge Conference Thursday, September 19th, 2013

The Open Knowledge Conference # OKCon  is taking place right now in Geneva (September 16 to 19th 2013). The Open Knowlege Foundation organizes this event to bring together actors of “Open”. Open Data is the main topic, but Open Science also has a good place. Different sessions are devoted to  Open Science / Research. The main auditorium was dedicated to the Open Science the whole Tuesday afternoon. (Here is a summary of the livetweet).

Thursday, September 19th , 2013 will also be a very special day! A workshop (or wikisprint) dedicated to improving Wikipedia articles and P2Pfoundation on Open Science is organized from 10 am to 17pm at the “Centre Universitaire d’Informatique” of Geneva university. Indeed, the Open and Citizen Science HackDay will host different workshops. Proposals were submitted to the organizers and then there was a vote for projects where we wanted to get involved. The wikisprint ranks first in number of votes (10).

What is a wikisprint?

The Wikisprintt is a formula already experienced by the P2P Foundation. As its name suggests, the Wikisprint seeks maximum contributions in a relatively short time (usually one day) on one or more wiki.

The idea of ​​a wikisprint on OpenScience had emerged more than five months ago during a first meeting with Michel Bauwens, founder of the P2P Foundation. At that time, he had just returned from the Spanish Spanish P2P Wikisprint held on March 20th 2013. This project was a great success. 211 articles had been created!

Today with the help of the P2P Foundation and motivated Wikipedians, the # OpenScienceWiki is taking shape!

Here are the ads on the page dedicated to the P2Pfoundation and Wikipedia (French and English)
