Women in Science Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the Royal Society

Tuesday, 4 March 2014 from 14:00 to 21:00 (GMT)

London, United Kingdom

This is an afternoon and evening event for people who want to edit Wikipedia, in particular topics relating to women in science and engineering. New and experienced editors are welcome; there will be training sessions for those new to editing, and experienced helpers will be available.

There will be a number of suggested topics for editing, but please bring your own thoughts on this.
Please bring a laptop if possible, though some will be available, as will wifi internet access. Also please bring any books you have to use as references, though the resources of the Royal Society library will be available until shortly before 5pm.

We envisage that most people will come either for the afternoon or the evening, with the changeover around 5.30-6pm, but there is room for some to span both sessions; there will be light refreshments laid on. There will be presentations on editing for new editors at about 2.20 and 6.20, lasting about 40 minutes, and there will be experienced editors on hand throughout to give assistance.

The event is slightly in advance of International Women’s Day, on Saturday March 8th.
