STEP ONE OF THE SUBMISSION PROCESS
In 2018, after the European Year of Cultural Heritage was celebrated by the first time and by the initiative of the European Union, the IWSC 2019 promotes Heritage, both material and intangible, to draw attention to the presence of Culture and heritage on Wiki platforms and to the contribution this digital resource/look could have on social and economic development in Europe and worldwide.
Therefore, works will be considered provided they focus on Wiki culture as a topic, source or way of spreading scientific knowledge and teaching tool and, particularly in the scope of heritage. Texts should be written in English, Spanish or Portuguese and will be assessed by members of the Scientific Commission.
Submission period starts on the 15 October and ends on the 8 February 2019. Authors will be notified whether their works have been accepted by the 15 February 2019.
The papers should be submitted in the following thematic groups:
Information accreditation on Wikipedia
Spreading and promoting Science on Wikipedia
Dissemination and promotion of material and intangible heritage
Educational Projects on Wiki Platforms
Posters may be presented (up to 3 pages, including references) or articles (from 8 to 10 pages, including references).
The papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings. For this reason, at least one of the authors must register for the event and perform oral presentation.
