Wiki4YearofSound2020 is an international campaign to improve Wikipedia content in topics related to acoustics. During the Edit-a-thon, editors will make changes to Wikipedia articles related to sound, acoustics, aeroacoustics, audio, signal processing, architectural acoustics, bioacoustics, electro-acoustics, environmental noise, musical acoustics, noise control, hearing and psychoacoustics, physical acoustics, speech, ultrasound, underwater sound and vibration. Editors can also translate pages from the English Wikipedia into other languages.

Contributions done during January through December 2020 will be highlighted in the International Year of Sound report of activities. Even small contributions help and you can start today!
