CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

WIKISYM 2006: THE 2006 INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON WIKIS

August 21-23, 2006, Odense, Denmark

CO-LOCATED WITH ACM HYPERTEXT 2006

See http://www.wikisym.org/ws2006

Archival - Peer Reviewed - ACM Sponsored



GENERAL INFORMATION

This year's Wiki Symposium brings together wiki 
researchers and practitioners in the historic and 
beautiful city of Odense, Denmark, on August 
21-23, 2006. Participants will present, discuss, 
and move forward the latest advances in wiki 
contents, sociology, and technology. The 
symposium program offers invited talks by Angela 
Beesley ("How and Why Wikipedia Works"), Doug 
Engelbart and Eugene E. Kim ("The Augmented 
Wiki"), Mark Bernstein ("Intimate Information") 
and Ward Cunningham ("Design Principles of 
Wikis"). The research paper track presents and 
discusses breaking wiki research, the panels let 
you listen to and contribute to topics like 
"Wikis in Education" and "The Future of Wikis", 
and the workshops let you get active and 
contribute to on-going research and practitioner 
work with your peers. (Many workshops accept 
walk-ins, so it is not too late!) What's more, 
for the first time, we will have an on-going 
openspace track (to replace BOFs) so you can get 
active and involved in an organized fashion on 
any wiki topic you like. We believe this is how 
to get the most out of your experience at WikiSym 2006!

And, of course, if you can't wait, please join 
our conversation on wiki research and practice on 
the symposium wiki at http://ws2006.wikisym.org
