Thank you for leading on this. 

I made small changes on Wiki page, but considering the notice there...

The following is a mirror of what are publicly available details of submission made at the call for proposal platform, Pretalx. Any changes here may be overwritten by a bot while syncing updates from Pretalx. Changes are monitored and may be updated into Pretalx if they do not change the context of the submission (i.e. correcting typographical errors). will be overwritten soon? ;-p

Hi all,

I'm still keen to be involved, but I will be away from Wednesday this week until mid-April and I won't be checking emails. So I probably can't be much help around the application process.

Regardless, I'll be at Wikimania, so if there's still a possibility of joining this panel I'll be there and can check in with everyone when I get back.

I'm still uncertain if I will come or not (tbh, it will mainly depend on if I've got a scholarship or not) but if I'm here, I'll be glad to share my experience (like Martin, including the use of Wikidata).

This is great that we have so much interest :) - And I hope the cheese will come too...

Unless wrong, we currently have amongst the interested
* Florence, WIPO WIR
* Lane Raspberry
* Blace
* Savannah Cragin : CCCC Wikipedia Initiative to engage scholars in writing studies (i.e. rhetoric, composition, technical communication, literacy, and language studies) to edit Wikipedia as a form of public scholarship. 
* James Gaunt : Wikimedia Australia's residencies.
* Martin Poulter : The two distinctive angles I have to offer are that 1) my residency is now explicitly about culturally diversifying Wikimedia projects- not just about the host institution’s collections. 2) using Wikidata queries to support my work on Wikipedia, e.g. to find translations into other languages of articles I’ve written.
* Pierre-Yves Beaudouin if he attends Wikimania
* Hugo Lopez :
part of a project from the Ministry of higher education and research: the ministry is funding 3 WIR per year in 3 big universities + 1 coordinator at Wikimédia France. This project started last month.

This is a link to what we did last year (online) :

Thanks Blace for starting the pad. Much appreciated (I have been dying in my bed from Covid for the last 2 days...)
I copy paste on it my small summary from above

Please start adding your names and let's continue the conversation...
