The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers exploring all aspects of Wikimedia websites such as Wikipedia, Wikidata, and Commons. With members of the Wikimedia Foundation's Research team on the organizing committee and with the experience of successful workshops in 2015 and 2016, we aim to continue facilitating a direct pathway for exchanging ideas between the organization that operates Wikimedia websites and the researchers interested in studying them.

Papers should be 1 to 8 pages long and will be published on the workshop webpage and optionally (depending on the authors' choice) in the workshop proceedings. Authors whose papers are accepted to the workshop will have the opportunity to participate in a poster session.
