Call For Papers

The knowledge, their accumulation, recording and reuse are the vectors of culture, the striking characteristic and differential of the human species, in addition to their biological characteristics. Today's society is identified, both in academy and in the imagination of the ordinary citizen, as the knowledge society, because of the central role of this as a catalyst of the production system, generator of wealth and promoter of citizenship and welfare in society today. Wikipedia is the modern version of the Enlightenment ideal of reason, of education and knowledge as mechanisms to achieve a fairer society. Contemporary heir of the ideals of "encyclopedia" of Diderot and d'Alembert, is an unprecedented experience, of generation, organization, evaluation, promotion, dissemination and sharing of knowledge, openly and for a community wide, disseminated by many countries and in different languages.

The goals of the II CCBWIKI and I IWSC are to approach the Brazilian academic community and international level of Wikipedia, promoting its use as reliable source of knowledge, educational tool and object of scholarly research, increase the presence of content in English and encourage the exchange of ideas and experience about it with the international academic community.

The II CCBWIKI and I IWSC will accept works that have Wikipedia as topic, source and means of dissemination of scientific knowledge and teaching tool. The texts should be in english, spanish or portuguese and will be evaluated by two members of the Scientific Committee.
