Enterprise Mediawiki Conference is an international conference dealing with Mediawiki applications for corporations and industries and held each years since Spring 2016. This year, EMWCon Spring 2020 was held online due to COVID-19 pandemic. Our user group participated for the first time to the conference with the special collaboration of University of Sfax. It was represented by Houcemeddine Turki, Mohamed Ali Hadj Taieb and Mohamed Ben Aouicha. The participants discussed the use of Wikibase, a structured data software based on Mediawiki and initially used to support Wikidata, in local smart city applications in a 30 minute lecture and tried to know more about the advanced features of Wikibase by attending other EMWCon lectures.
