Celtic Knot 2018 aims to continue where last years conference left off. Speakers are encouraged to share their success stories and the challenges they have faced whilst helping to develop a small or minority language Wicipedia. Day 2 of the conference will feature an unconference which will allow people to pitch session ideas on the day. This will be agreat way of putting together sessions which build on the themes and issues raised during the traditional conference program.


We will not be restricting submissions to a particular theme other than the brief outlined above, however contributors may wish to consider submitting proposals about community engagement projects, the use of Wikipedia in education or the development of open data/use of Wikidata in your language.
