Four tutorial classes have been held in parallel each afternoon. On Tuesday, one of the tutorial classes has been devoted to Wikipedia, with the aim to improve the existing content related to the topics covered by the school. More generally, the scope was to stress the importance of having reliable scientific content on this widely used tool and to provide the basics on how to write in Wikipedia.
