Dear All,
I'm happy to share with you that '22nd Cochrane Colloquium', an annual 
celebration of Cochrane Collaboration is going to take place in Hyderabad this 
year. Cochrane Collaboration is an independent, non-for profit, international 
organisation. It helps provide evidence-based, relevant, systematic, up-to-date 
reviews to people on health which is widely referred by 
healthcare-professionals, patients and general public.
Last year in the Colloquium, there were nearly 2000 scientists from around the 
world in Quebec where Cochrane and Wikipedia initiated a partnership to 
populate Wikipedia articles with evidence from Systematic Reviews. This 
partnership was initiated on the Wikipedia front by Dr. James and his team of 
Wiki Project Med Foundation. As a part of it there has been appointment of 
Sydney Poore as a Wikipedian-In-Residence. For more. The Colloquium is going to 
happen from 21st - 26th September this year.
A Pre-colloquium Symposium 'Wikipedia and Cochrane' is planned on 21st Sept. 
Cochrane Collaboration has offered free entries for upto 50 Wikipedians to this 
Cochrane has also allotted two slots for Wikpedia Workshops in addition to a 
Wikipedia Booth during the colloquium. Details are here:
