The free online Encyclopedia Wikipedia answers questions of millions  
of users every day. Wikipedia’s mere existence, growth, (social and  
technical) functioning and quality also raises an enormous number of  
research questions. The “Wikipedia Academy 2012: Research and Free  
Knowledge” provides a platform for the research community and the  
Wikipedia community to connect, present, discuss and advance research  
on Wikipedia in particular and on free knowledge in general.

The Wikipedia Academy 2012 is organized by Wikimedia Deutschland e.V.  
in collaboration with the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for  
Internet and Society and Freie Universität Berlin. The conference will  
take place in Berlin, June 29 to July 1, 2012. The event will be open  
to all interested parties and features a variety of session formats,  
ranging from panel discussions and tracks with traditional paper  
presentations to break-out sessions, lightning talks, poster  
presentations and a science fair. We particularly encourage young  
doctoral and postdoctoral researcher to participate and to submit  
extended abstracts.

Extended Abstracts must be submitted by March 31, 2012 for peer review.
