== Objectives ==
WibKE2006 is the second workshop on Semantic Wikis. It aims to explore
and collect the different ideas and motivations that have lead to the
recent emergence of so-called "Semantic Wiki" systems. Wikis can be
seen as editable information portals. In this workshop, we are mostly
interested in the editing/authoring/articulation of information and
less about the portal aspect.

The main objective of the workshop is to promote and
further develop the idea of employing Wiki design principles and
implementations as enabling technology and development paradigm for
(formally) creating and structuring knowledge in distributed
scenarios. A further aim is to sensitize knowledge engineers in
dealing with vague and changing requirements in distributed, Web-based

The workshop looks for novel approaches for a seamless integration of
Wiki technologies in knowledge engineering practices, for supporting
concepts and strategies, as well as for tools and use-cases of their
application. Of special interest are ideas and applications using
Wikis for creating, managing and using formally represented knowledge
in the context of the Semantic Web.

== Topics of Interest ==
include, but are not limited to:
* Methods employing the Wiki Way in knowledge engineering,
* Concepts and strategies for integrating domain experts
  and end users into the knowledge engineering process,
* Methods for automatic, Wiki-based knowledge elicitation
  from collaborative environments,
* Methods for supporting the creation of structured
  and (partially) formalised personal knowledge bases
* Policies, authentication and trust within agile
  collaborative knowledge engineering scenarios,
* Strategies and methods joining Web 2.0, Wiki and
  Semantic Web technologies for knowledge management purposes
* Semantic Wiki tools supporting semantic collaboration
* Semantic Wiki tools supporting personal knowledge management
* Wiki-driven applications enabling massively distributed knowledge elicitation,
* Requirements and use-cases for Web-scaled collaborative knowledge engineering
  in relation to Wiki technologies
* Applications of Semantic Wikis, e.g. in Bio-Medicine,
  Business, Software-Engineering
* Experience reports, best practices
  and guidelines in the aforementioned areas

== Workshop Format ==
*  Introduction and overview about current developments with regard to
   the application of Wikis in knowledge engineering and knowledge management
* Paper presentation
** Position (5 pages) and full papers (10 pages) will be peer-reviewed by three independent reviewers.
** Workshop proceedings will appear at CEUR Workshop Proceedings, ISSN 1613-0073
** Panel discussion

== Prospective Audience ==
* Researchers and practitioners developing or interested
  in Wiki-based methods and tools for knowledge engineering,
* Knowledge engineers, and domain experts interested in the
  development of collaborative evolving content repositories,
* Participants from industry interested in employing Wikis
  for organizational knowledge engineering,
* Wiki community activists.
