Knowledge 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 knowledge plays as a catalyst of the production system, generating wealth and promoting citizenship and welfare in society. Wikipedia is the modern version of the Enlightenment ideal of reason, of education and knowledge as mechanisms to achieve a fairer society. The contemporary heir of the “encyclopedia”’s ideals of Diderot and d’Alembert, it is an unprecedented experience, of generation, organization, evaluation, promotion, dissemination and sharing of knowledge openly and for a community wide, disseminated in many countries and in hundreds of languages population.

The goals of the I International Wikipedia Scientific Conference and II Brazilian Wikipedia Scientific Conference are to approximate the Brazilian academic Wikipedia community and the international one, promoting Wikipedia use as a reliable source of knowledge, an educational tool and the object of scholarly research, increase the presence of content in Portuguese in wiki-related scientific events and encourage the exchange of ideas and experience about it in the international academic community.

The I IWSC and II CCBWIKI will accept papers and posters that have Wikipedia as topic, source or mean of dissemination of scientific knowledge or teaching tool. The texts should be in English, Spanish or Portuguese and will be evaluated by members of the Scientific Committee.

The submission period runs until 31 August September 17 2017. The authors will be notified of acceptance or not of its papers until September 30 2017.
