As a reminder, the Data Quality Days is an online event taking place on July 8-10 and focusing on data quality processes.
If you want to contribute to the program of the event, you have two possibilities:
The deadline to propose sessions is June 19th. Afterwards, the organizers will make a selection among the proposals and integrate them in the schedule. The first program draft will be added on the event page in the next few days.
We hope that this event can encourage active or occasional editors to talk about data quality, highlight some important issues and work on solving them together, so we hope that many of you will propose topics or sessions! If you have questions, or if you're not sure where to start, feel free to contact me.
I'm happy to share with you the upcoming Wikidata event Data Quality Days 2022, taking place online on July 8th to 10th. Following up on previous and similar gatherings (Data Quality Days 2021, Data Reuse Days 2022), this event will focus on processes around data quality, and will provide a space to bring the Wikidata community and the Wikidata development team together. During 3 days of presentations, workshops and facilitated conversations, we will discuss how we are currently identifying and fixing incorrect data on Wikidata, how we could improve these processes to increase data quality, and what concrete measures we could put in place together, with policies, tools or documentation.
The event is open to everyone, no particular knowledge or experience needed, and will take place on the open source video conference platform Jitsi. On the event page, you will find some useful information, the list of sessions, and the list of participants where you can already sign up.
The program of the Data Quality Days 2022 is curated by the organizers (Léa Lacroix, Lydia Pintscher and Manuel Merz). Until June 19th, you can propose a presentation, a workshop or a discussion topic. These will be selected and grouped by the organizers, and the final schedule will be ready around June 27th.
If you have any questions, ideas or suggestions, or if you need support to propose a presentation, feel free to write on the talk page of the event or to reach out to me directly by email. I will also post updates on the talk page.
We're looking forward to discussing with you again about data quality!
