[Wikide-l] Wikipedia Academy: Call for Papers verlängert!

Nicole Ebber
Hallo zusammen,

aufgrund der zahlreichen Nachfragen haben wir uns entschieden, den
‘Call for Papers’ bis zum 15. April zu verlängern. Wir freuen uns über
rege Beteiligung!

Alle Informationen findet ihr im Veranstaltungswiki [1], wir haben
außerdem letzten Woche einen ersten Entwurf des Programmablaufs [2]
veröffentlicht. Die Angaben zur Academy sind bewusst in englischer
Sprache gehalten und richten sich demnach an in die internationale
Wikipedia-Forschungscommunity.

Die Academy ist offen für alle an Forschung zu Wikipedia und Freiem
Wissen Interessierten. Wir möchten dabei besonders auch junge
Doktoranden und Nachwuchsforscher einladen, sich mit einer Einreichung
am Call for Papers zu beteiligen. Einreichungen aus der Community sind
herzlich willkommen, wir freuen uns auch, wenn ihr den Call for Papers
in euren akademischen Netzwerken verbreitet.

Für alle Fragen stehen euch Denis, Angelika und ich gerne zur Verfügung.

Beste Grüße
Nicole Ebber
