The registration for Wiki Workshop 2022  is now open. The event is
virtually held on April 25, 12:00-18:30 UTC and as part of The Web
Conference 2022 . The plenary parts of the event will be recorded
and shared publicly afterwards.
Wiki Workshop is the largest Wikimedia research event of the year (so
far;) that the Research team at the Wikimedia Foundation co-organizes
with our Research Fellow, Bob West (EPFL). This year, Srijan Kumar
(Georgia Tech) joined the organizing team as well.:) The event brings
together scholars and researchers from across the world who are
interested in or are actively engaged with research and development on
the Wikimedia projects.
While the details of the schedule are to be finalized and posted in
the coming week, we expect to generally follow the format of 2021 .
This year we received research submissions from more than 20 countries
and have accepted 27 research papers whose authors will present the
work as part of the workshop (If you are an author of an accepted
paper: congrats!:) . Our keynote speaker is Larry Lessig  and we
will have a panel to reflect on the decade anniversary of SOPA/PIPA,
moderated by Erik Moeller (Freedom of the Press). And of course, all
the music, games, etc. will remain. :)
If you are interested in participating in the live event, please
indicate your interest by filling out . Anyone is encouraged to
register: you don't have to be a researcher. In the registration form,
please explain why attending the live event will support you in your
work on the Wikimedia projects and beyond.
If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Is there a way to force the re-scraping of a Mix'n'match catalog ? The
catalog of a database I manage
(https://mix-n-match.toolforge.org/#/catalog/1679) has not been scrapped
since one month while the website is regularly updated.
Subsidiary question : Is there a way to set the frequency of the
re-scraping of a catalog ?
