Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2021 submission
On behalf of the Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2021 programme committee, I would like to inform you that we consider to accept your submission "Interlinks and Sitelinks for Wikipedia in other languages apart from English wikipedia" as a lightning talk rather than a workshop. However, given that the submission is incomplete and lacks an abstract, we cannot accept it before you fill in the missing lines in the submission template.
I've noticed that you've added the missing content, and I've added your session to the draft schedule with a starting time at 15:30 (UTC) on 7 November (Sunday). Best.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 13:56, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

It is online on 12, 14 and 17 May, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia #IDAHOBIT, with offline events at around 10 locations on 5 continents in the 5-day span as QW2023 Nodes.
