Wikidata Days 2019 is a Teresa e Alexandre Soares dos Santos Library and Social Sciences DataLab event that aims to bring together people interested in Open Data and Open science projects.

The program will consist of one day of talks/presentations focused on how to use Wikidata for Science dissemination and communication, and a road-show of projects using open data with social impact. A second day will be dedicated to a hackathon, where we will experiment editing Wikidata and explore some of the tools available. The focus of this session will be on exchanging ideas and good practices.

Wikidata is a free, open, multilingual and collaboratively edited knowledge base, developed by the Wikimedia Foundation. Launched in 2012, it works as a hub of structured data that can be used by other Wikimedia projects, such as Wikipedia or Wikiquotes, and tools like Scholia. Anyone can contribute to this platform, as well as copy, modify and distribute its content. Many tools are already using Wikidata as the platform for Open Linked Data (i.e. Apple's SIRI personal assistant, Google's Knowledge Graph, and many more...).

Anyone interested in this theme is welcome to this event, even with no knowledge on the subject.
