We're thrilled to announce that applications to attend WikiCite 2018 are
now open <https://goo.gl/forms/hV6rXRCdQ3fAK9v13>.

WikiCite 2018 <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2018> is a 3-day
conference, summit, and hack day dedicated to the vision of creating an
open repository of bibliographic data to support the citation and
fact-checking needs of Wikimedia projects, and possibly, to serve as an
open infrastructure for research, education, and information quality across
the web.

WikiCite 2018 expands efforts started with WikiCite 2016
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2016> and WikiCite 2017
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2017> to explore these
possibilities by leveraging Wikidata—Wikimedia’s structured knowledge
base—and to develop open source tools to improve citation management and
verifiability strategies for free knowledge. Since then, the amount of
bibliographic data in Wikidata has grown exponentially, allowing us to
glimpse the possibilities of a truly open, universal library and citation
graph, while also exposing significant social and technical challenges.

This year presents a pivotal moment for WikiCite, wherein its emergent
community — consisting of Wikimedians, librarians, LODLAM practitioners,
software engineers, data scientists, and open knowledge advocates — must
grapple with possible growth scenarios, address critical gaps, and set a
course for the project’s future
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiCite/Roadmap>. If you are
passionate about tending Wikipedia’s root system (references!), or believe
in the broader possibilities of contributing to the bibliographic commons,
WikiCite 2018 presents an unprecedented opportunity to meet fellow dreamers
and hackers, and to help shape this vital effort.

This year’s event will be hosted at the David Brower Center
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Brower_Center> in Berkeley,
California, USA, November 27-29, 2018. Applications to attend the event
(including travel support requests
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite_2018/Travel_funding>) are open
until *September 17, 2018*:

SJ—this is my personal opinion (not the view of the organizing committee)
but I'd love to see more of the following:

- people from GLAM organizations that are actively experimenting with
Wikidata integration in their collections: most libraries know about
Wikidata as a controlled vocabulary for topics, not many know about its
coverage of works, authors, institutions;
- Wikimedia contributors interested in filling out gaps for works cited
in Wikipedia and other sister projects but still missing in Wikidata—like
books (see this recent discussion
<https://twitter.com/MagnusManske/status/1035131537174474752>) or other
types of source (patents, radio programs, news articles);
- librarians, archivists, ethnographers working on underrepresented
sources or collections that don't follow typical metadata standards
- journalists and organizations interested in using Wikidata for
fact-checking and verification

the full list would probably be much longer. What are the missing
communities that others on this list think we should reach out to?
