About the conference[edit | edit source]

The meeting runs over 4 days attracting around 1000 participants and runs from the 30th June-2nd July ([1]). Wikipedia, as a means of public engagement, will be represented.

Wikipedia workshop[edit | edit source]

  • Introductory workshop 8.00 am – 9.00 am
  • Drop in sessions 9.00 – 14.15 (room open for an hour or so where members could drop in and put to use their new editing skills)

Wikipedia is a collaboratively edited, multilingual, free content internet encyclopaedia, and the fifth most visited site in the world. The site received 18 billion pages views and nearly 500 million unique visitors a month. But not all the information is accurate, up-to-date or referenced. Learn how you can do your part to improve physiology on Wikipedia in this hour long workshop which will introduce the basics of editing Wikipedia.

If you can’t make the workshop, Wikipedians will be on hand for drop in sessions until 2.15 just bring your tablet, or laptop and they will get you started.

Breakfast provided.
