Scientific meetings (conferences/workshops) has a group of researchers that determine which contributions (articles/abstracts/presentations/demos) that will be accepted to the meeting. This is usually called the program committee. For modeling scientific events a property catching this relationship is wanted.

This is the inverse of the suggestion at Wikidata:Property proposal/program committee member.

The suggestion here (as oppose to Wikidata:Property proposal/program committee member) may be better as some conferences may have over 1000 program committee members.

I have changed the preposition from "of" to "for" for the name of the property. To me (as a second-language English speaker) that sounds better. I hope the change is regarded as an improvement and that it does not affect peoples opinion in a negative direction. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:32, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the list! Most close come:
For the proposed property there should at least be a subject item "program committee". I changed to value class from scientific event (Q52260246) to event (Q1656682) and added an example to   Support the proposal. -- JakobVoss (talk) 10:46, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Maybe I was overly ambitious in starting this but to go along with this proposal I tried to set up Wikidata:WikiProject Event Metadata, a project to review and suggest models for how to capture aspects of academic conferences and other events in Wikidata. I had trouble filling in some gaps but I will think about it and add more. If this property is developed then that could be a component of modeling conferences in Wikidata.

  •   Comment Note the change of preposition mentioned under motivation. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 17:32, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Wait I see no justification of why the link is in the proposed direction. I would expect that there are people who are in their lifetime in the program committee of a hundred events. To me it would make more sense to model this as a property of the event than as proposed to model it as a property of the person. ChristianKl❫ 17:57, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose having both this and its inverse simultaneously. (Not opposed to having either of them individually.) --Yair rand (talk) 03:21, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose seems like this would just list countless events and duplicate data already available in the inverse.
