Critical Point of View: Second international conference of the CPOV
Wikipedia Research Initiative

Date: 26-27 March 2010

Location: OBA (Public Library Amsterdam, next to Amsterdam central station),
Oosterdokskade 143, Amsterdam

Organized by the Institute of Network Cultures Amsterdam, in cooperation
with the Centre for Internet and Society in Bangalore, India.

Wikipedia is at the brink of becoming the de facto global reference of
dynamic knowledge. The heated debates over its accuracy, anonymity, trust,
vandalism and expertise only seem to fuel further growth of Wikipedia and
its user base. Apart from leaving its modern counterparts Britannica and
Encarta in the dust, such scale and breadth places Wikipedia on par with
such historical milestones as Pliny the Elder's Naturalis Historia, the Ming
Dynasty's Wen-hsien ta-ch' eng, and the key work of French Enlightenment,
the Encyclopédie. The multilingual Wikipedia as digital collaborative and
fluid knowledge production platform might be said to be the most visible and
successful example of the migration of FLOSS (Free/Libre/Open Source
Software) principles into mainstream culture. However, such celebration
should contain critical insights, informed by the changing realities of the
Internet at large and the Wikipedia project in particular.


The CPOV Research Initiative was founded from the urge to stimulate critical
Wikipedia research: quantitative and qualitative research that could benefit
both the wide user-base and the active Wikipedia community itself. On top of
this, Wikipedia offers critical insights into the contemporary status of
knowledge, its organizing principles, function, and impact; its production
styles, mechanisms for conflict resolution and power (re-)constitution. The
overarching research agenda is at once a philosophical, epistemological and
theoretical investigation of knowledge artifacts, cultural production and
social relations, and an empirical investigation of the specific phenomenon
of the Wikipedia.

Conference Themes: Wiki Theory, Encyclopedia Histories, Wiki Art, Wikipedia
Analytics, Designing Debate and Global Issues and Outlooks.

Confirmed speakers: Florian Cramer (DE/NL), Andrew Famiglietti (UK), Stuart
Geiger (USA), Hendrik-Jan Grievink (NL), Charles van den Heuvel (NL),
Jeanette Hofmann (DE), Athina Karatzogianni (UK), Scott Kildall (USA),
Patrick Lichty (USA), Hans Varghese Mathews (IN), Teemu Mikkonen (FI), Mayo
Fuster Morell (IT), Mathieu O'Neil (AU), Felipe Ortega (ES), Dan O'Sullivan
(UK), Joseph Reagle (USA), Ramón Reichert (AU), Richard Rogers (USA/NL),
Alan Shapiro (USA/DE), Maja van der Velden (NL/NO), Gérard Wormser (FR).

Editorial team: Sabine Niederer and Geert Lovink (Amsterdam),  Nishant Shah
and Sunil Abraham (Bangalore), Johanna Niesyto (Siegen), Nathaniel Tkacz
(Melbourne). Project manager CPOV Amsterdam: Margreet Riphagen. Research
intern: Juliana Brunello. Production intern: Serena Westra.

The CPOV conference in Amsterdam will be the second conference of the CPOV
Wikipedia Research Initiative. The launch of the initiative took place in
Bangalore India, with the conference WikiWars in January 2010. After the
first two events, the CPOV organization will work on producing a reader, to
be launched early 2011. For more information or submitting a reader
