Dear Shyamal,

Awesome!  Congrats to the organizers for creating a useful coordination page! 

I have signed up for the online edit-a-thon and I am looking forward to create a few articles during the next few days. I will also be around to help with categorization of the results. I can also volunteer to bring them to Wikidata.

The central coordination page is now up. The contact person is Dr Harini Barath - harini@indiabioscience.org.
The in-person meetups are on the 11th at the Centre for Ecological Sciences (Biological Sciences building), Indian Institute of Science; 13th at the National Centre for Biological Sciences, GKVK campus; 14th at the Urban Solace (restaurant) at Ulsoor.

I am providing some editing support on the 11th and hopefully some of you can be there on the other two days, if not do pitch in remotely and help the editors or improving the target articles (hopefully without causing edit conflicts and grief to many potentially long-term editors).

best wishes
Shyamal

>  Great initiative! The category [1] for Indian women scientists was created two years back, during the Ada Lovelace Day edit-a-thon in October 2012. We have more than 40 Indian women scientists included in this category now, thanks to the many women-centered edit-a-thons that attract editors' attention to this topic. I hope to see more articles added to this category after the edit-a-thon this year!

I find it slightly off-putting  to have to fill up a private google form [2] to be able to participate in a public edit-a-thon. It is also not clear to me if the event is invite-only. I am holding back from joining the event until the event allows me to participate by signing up on a Wikimedia page.
