Hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation.
This is for your kind information that, from 22nd May, 2020 Friday to 24th May, 2020 Sunday, a datathon will be happening on Indian scientists on Wikidata. The lack of data about Indian scientists, their works and publications on Wikidata is the reason behind conducting the datathon. Considering the ongoing pandemic, the datathon will also focus on scientists working on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.
The tasklist of the datathon is flexible. Participants can choose their own preferred task on this topic
Hoping for your active participation.
Take care and stay safe,
