Join this event to share and discuss work in progress or new ideas and develop relationships across and beyond ADM+S and Wikimedia research interests.

As a digital platform, Wikimedia projects play a powerful role in the information and media ecosystem, from providing breaking news coverage to data points in Google infoboxes. Wikimedia projects include various types of automation and contribute to the automation of information provided by other platforms and are also being impacted by the regulations attempting to control big tech. There are therefore many areas of overlap with ADM+S areas of interest which could provide a range of fascinating research projects or collaborations which this workshop hopes to foster. 

Join us for a lunchtime seminar/workshop on researching Wikimedia as a Digital Platform. The session will include lightning talks of 5-10 minutes on current or future research projects, questions, ideas or issues followed by open discussion and input from colleagues and for developing new proposals or collaborations. Speakers may share a paper or concept at various stages of gestation. 

Lunch will be provided.
This event is being hosted as a 2023 ADM+S Symposium Satellite event.

If you would like to provide a 5 minute lightning talk please email with your name, organisation and a title. Please indicate if you will participate in person (preferred) or online.
