From Wikimania

  • Primary target group: Users with an interest in using Wikidata in articles
  • Critical issue: Relatively. There is still a lot of uncertainty over what Wikidata actually is or does.
  • Cross-Wiki significance: Yes
  • Abstract: Clear and concise and will be understood by the intended target audience
  • Concept: Improving the use of Wikidatea and encouraging more editors to use it.
  • Other / concerns: IMO certainly a candidate for a 25 minute presentation but if a workshop-style environment is preferable, then perhaps an 80 min BoF would be more appropriate.

Kudpung It could be a discussion or a workshop. I wasn't expecting it to be a 25min presentation + questions. Phoebe let me know about 3 very similar presentations. I'm happy to give way to them in a panel discussion or BoF session. One way I can see it happening is:
  • A few 10min presentations at the beginning, each with an introduction to a breakout session (say 30min total)
  • Then 50min breakout discussions: 1 group on standardisation of modules, 1 tutorial session for people to learn how to invoke Wikidata in other Wikimedia projects, and perhaps 1 advanced workshop on writing modules to provide further support for automatic generation of infoboxes (but the people who can teach this are might be needed in the standardisation discussion)

Sounds like good training to improve Wikipedia data by fetching from wikidata. Geraldshields11 (talk) 15:12, 21 March 2017 (UTC)Reply
