WikidataCon 2023 will be organized by Wikimedia Taiwan and Wikimedia Germany[edit]

Hello all,

Following up on the search for a partner to co-organize the WikidataCon 2023 and after talking to several enthusiastic affiliates and local Wikidata communities, I am happy to announce, Wikimedia Germany will support Wikimedia Taiwan and the local Wikidata community in Taiwan in designing and running the next iteration of the Wikidata conference, which will take place on October 28-29, 2023.

The Wikidata community in Taiwan has been active for years and regularly organises events in Taiwan, collaborating with other open source and open data communities. They are particularly interested in geographical data, human settlements and local languages. Wikimedia Taiwan will provide the administrative coordination and legal framework to support the Wikidata community in Taiwan.

Many people from different fields are working on Wikidata: Researchers, cultural institutions, linked open data enthusiasts and more. WikidataCon 2023 attendees will be able to discover how people from other disciplines interact with Wikidata, learn from them, exchange ideas and find inspiration.

With this partnership, we’ll try out a hybrid event format. We will hold an on-site event that will take place in Taipei, welcoming participants from East Asia. Meanwhile, participants from other regions of the world will be able to join the conference online. Finally, we’re encouraging other local Wikidata groups to prepare satellite events and on-site gatherings.

More information and updates will be provided in the upcoming months on Wikidata:WikidataCon 2023 and its talk page. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, feel free to reach the organizers on the talk page.

We’re extremely happy to be collaborating with the enthusiastic Wikidata community in Taiwan. We look forward to this new iteration of the conference.

自從宣佈公開徵求Wikidatacon 2023 的伙伴之後,德國維基媒體協會 (Wikimedia Germany) 與數個興趣小組與在地維基數據社群接洽。我們德國維基媒體協會很高興宣佈我們將與台灣維基媒體協會 (Wikimedia Taiwan) 合作,台灣在地的臺灣維基數據社群(Wikidata Taiwan)將會設計與執行下一輪於 2023 10/28-29 舉行的 Wikidatacon 大會。

近幾年台灣的維基數據社群相當活躍,定期在台灣舉行活動,並且與其他的開源與開放資料社群合作。他們關注行政區劃、在地語言、溪流資料。 在地社群,台灣維基媒體協會,則會提供必要的行政協調與法律架構來支援整個社群。

Dear Wikimedia Community members,
(apologies for cross-posting - you can find this announcement in Mandarin below)
Wikimedia Taiwan is excited to collaborate together!
When Wikidata Taiwan became aware that Wikimedia Germany was seeking a partner for a co-organized WikidataCon event in 2023,  there was intense enthusiasm within the community. Followed by several discussions with Wikimedia Germany, the Wikimedia Taiwan chapter and the representatives of the Taiwan Wikidata community confirmed their intent to collaborate. The preparations are all going quite well right now!
Wikidata development in Taiwan only began in 2018 with more systematic goals and initiatives. Since then, OpenStreetMap x Wikidata organize monthly meetup by the Wikidata Taiwan community and the OpenStreetMap Taiwan community, as well as the Yearly Open Data Day, COSCUP community track and other events, both have consistently promoted the growth of related editing and project development.  For instance, importing of data from a ground-level village dataset, various levels of school dataset, art dataset and exhibition information.  As a result, it has collaborated with other open-data communities, primarily GLAM and government agencies.  Other examples include the citizen open source groups' g0v-Hackathon and g0v-Summit events. In addition, collaboration with the Soil and Water Conservation Bureau to promote river dataset data governance issues. The community also holds the Wikidata Cross-Domain Forum at the end of October to celebrate Wikidata's birthday with the global Wikidata community.
Wikimedia Taiwan is delighted to work with Wikimedia Germany to co-organize the 2023 WikidataCon with Asia as the focal point, while also following the footway of Wikimedia Movement user group in Brazil. We will continue the development of Wikidata in a variety of cultural contexts. Particularly in relation to Taiwan's issues of cross-disciplines and dialogue. As a result, we advocate for a more diverse and prosperous global Wikidata community.
As Léa mentioned in her words, WikidataCon will host both online and on-site events the following year, as we want to maximize the capacity for participation. The on-site event will take place in Taipei. When the time comes, all Wikidata contributors and friendly organisations around Taiwan are welcome to join our events!
Stay tuned for upcoming events!

臺灣維基數據社群(Wikidata Taiwan)在首次獲知德國維基媒體協會尋求 2023 年 WikidataCon 的合作夥伴時,社群內部便抱持高度的興趣,後續在台灣維基媒體協會與臺灣維基數據社群代表經過幾次與德國維基媒體協會的意向討論後,確定了雙方合作的意願,目前所有準備工作也都順利的進行當中!
維基數據 (Wikidata) 在台灣的發展,大約始於 2018 年才有比較系統性的目標與措施,自此由 Wikidata Taiwan 社群與 OpenStreetMap Taiwan 社群合辦的 OpenStreetMap x Wikidata 月聚以及每年的 Open Data Day 、COSCUP 社群軌等活動,穩定的推動著相關編輯及專案的發展,像是匯入台灣基礎行政區的村里資料、各級學校資料,藝術資料與展覽資訊等。並逐漸地與台灣其他開放社群、GLAM、政府單位等合作,例如公民開源團體的 g0v 大松或是 g0v Summit 活動,以及與水土保持局合作推動溪流資料的資料治理議題;逢年 10 月底,社群也自主性的舉辦「維基數據跨領域論壇」與全球的維基數據社群一同慶祝 Wikidata 生日。
能承接在巴西維基媒體運動用戶組之後,與德國維基媒體協會共同籌劃 2023 WikidataCon,並以亞洲作為核心,台灣維基媒體協會備感榮幸。我們將延續對於維基數據在不同文化脈絡下的發展,特別是在台灣我們所關心的跨領域交流與對話,倡議一個更加多元、共榮的全球維基數據社群。
誠如 Léa 在信中所言,明年的 WikidataCon 將同時舉辦線上與線下型式活動,我們希望將參與的形式盡可能擴及到最大程度。線下的主場也將在台北舉辦,屆時,如果您就在我們臨近的區域,非常歡迎所有維基數據貢獻者、友好單位的朋友們,一起來台灣現場共襄盛舉!
