Wikipedia:WikiProject Computational Biology/ISCB competition announcement 2018/Invite1
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) and WikiProject Computational Biology are pleased to call for participants in the 2018 ISCB Wikipedia Competition. The ISCB aims to improve the communication of scientific knowledge to the public at large, and Wikipedia and its sister sites play an increasingly important role in this communication; the ISCB Wikipedia Competition aims to improve the quality of Wikipedia articles relating to computational biology. Entries to the competition are open now; the competition closes on 31 Dec 2018.
For students/trainees: Entry to the competition is open internationally to students and trainees of any level, both as individuals and as groups. Prizes of up to $500 will be awarded to the best contributions as chosen by a judging panel of experts; these will be awarded at the ISMB/ECCB conference in Basel, Switzerland in July 2019. As in previous years, the ISCB encourages competition entries for contributions to Wikipedia in any language, and contributions to Wikidata items.
For teachers/trainers: We encourage you to pass this invitation on to your students, and consider using the competition as part of an in-class assignment.
