Hello everyone,

With great pleasure, we would like to invite you to the WikiCite Satellite Event hosted by the Open Heritage Foundation in New Delhi on April 18,19 2020.

Wikicite is a Wikimedia event to develop open citations and linked bibliographic data to serve free knowledge. The Wikimedia community and the GLAM institutions need to understand the dynamics of open bibliographic data better and how it can be scaled proactively with Wikimedia projects and other open-source platforms that are involved in open data. 

This event will be aimed at addressing the prevalent gap between Wikidata and Wikisource integration for works and their consecutive items. 

The format and structure of the event would have open calls for collaborators/presenters/participants. The event will be of 2 days and the attendance would be around 15-25 people, including, the stakeholders working with GLAM institutions, Wikisourcers, and Wikidatans interested in bibliographical data.

The scholarships and registrations are open from February 26, 2020 and close on March 15, 2020. We also invite the community members to submit proposals for sessions. The date for submissions starts from February 26, 2020 and close on March 11, 2020. The submissions will be taken into account for prioritizing the candidates for scholarships. 

We look forward to welcoming you to New Delhi in April with the collaborative spirit of this year’s Wikimania theme ‘Sharing knowledge brings people together’ and ‘Power of Diverse Collaboration’. 

On behalf of the OHF and the organizing committee,
