WikiCite 2017 is a 3-day conference, summit and hack day to be hosted in Vienna, Austria, on May 23-25, 2017. It expands on efforts started last year at WikiCite 2016 to design a central bibliographic repository, as well as tools and strategies to improve information quality and verifiability in Wikimedia projects.

Our goal is to bring together Wikimedia contributors, data modelers, information and library science experts, software engineers, designers and academic researchers who have experience working with Wikipedia’s citations and bibliographic data.

WikiCite 2017 will be a venue to:

* Day 1. (Conference) – present progress on existing work and initiatives for citations and bibliographic data across Wikimedia projects

* Day 2. (Summit) – discuss technical, social, outreach and policy directions

* Day 3. (Hack) – get together to build, based on new ideas and applications
