The Wikimedia Brazilian Group of Education and Research will host on October 13th and
14th in Rio de Janeiro the "1st Brazilian Wikipedia Science Conference"
This event aims to bring together students, teachers and researchers with projects and
publications about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects and their dynamics.
We are almost done and soon we will announce our official website and call for papers.
Articles and poster will be accepted.
The Wikimedia Foundation has validated our logo  and the use of the Wikipedia brand in
the event name.
We are using as inspiration the events organized by Wikimedia UK and OpenSym.
We are trying to bring to Brazil some important keynotes from our movement. If someone
from this list is interested in coming to visit us, let's keep in touch!
That event is under organization in a very organic and experimental way, with no funding
from WMF to see the impact and interest from the local academic community. Based on the
results and impacts we will try to do something bigger in 2017.
All the content produced during the event will be published in CC licenses (photos,
videos, interviews, publications).
Soon we will have more news! You can check our planning page here
