The registration form only collects the defined responses and free-form responses you provide to the questions asked.

The results of the paper submission form will be shared publicly in the following manner. Accepted papers will be shared publicly during Wiki Workshop for the purpose of open analysis, research, and study. Accepted papers will be published on the Wiki Workshop website and in The Web Conference 2022 proceedings. You will have the option of posting your slide deck and poster onto Wikimedia Commons or Figshare.
