Re: [open-science] 1st International Wikipedia Scientific Conference (2nd Brazilian edition)

Interesting.  How does this differ from Wikimania or WikiConference?

Are you targeting studies that just happen to use Wikipedia data for
measurement (e.g. [1]) or would you like to limit studies that target a
Wikimedia movement priority (e.g. [2])?

Generally, I aim my scientific output regarding Wikimedia stuff to big
academic conferences where other researchers are studying similar phenomena
in other field sites.  For example, you can find lots of work covering
OpenStreetMap, Zooniverse, Open source development, and Open scientific
practices at ACM's OpenSym, CSCW, and GROUP conferences.

With this conference operate with formal peer review and archived
publication (like in computer science/ACM/IEEE) or will be more like a
pre-publication outlet (like conferences are in basically all the other
disciplines)?
