SWKM2008: Social Web and Knowledge Management
	a Social Web 2008 Workshop

Located at the 17th World Wide Web Conference WWW2008
April 22nd, 2008 (Workshop day)
Beijing, China

Supported by the EU projects:
KIWI: Knowledge in a Wiki
Active: Active Knowledge Powered Enterprise

The social web, the most interesting part of the Web 2.0,
aims at bringing people together and facilitating richer
interaction among them. It is characterized by a strong
focus on communities where people share experiences,
information and knowledge, meet and discuss, or do
business together.

Knowledge management systems focus on knowledge and
experience sharing. They enhance organization capabilities
by externalizing knowledge of its employees and combine
them in novel forms. Therefore, there is a common interest
in social structures as well as social computing in both fields.
The social web can be the common underlying platform for novel
and web-based knowledge management systems. It breaks up
rigid processes and enables much richer interaction
possibilities and creativity. In this workshop we will bring
together people from the areas of social web technologies,
semantic systems, and knowledge management. We would like
to study synergies between social computing, social web,
semantic systems, and knowledge management and provide
a look at the current state of the art in the area.

To ensure a creative atmosphere during the workshop,
the presenters will be selected based on their submitted
papers and demonstrations. In order to obtain an intensive
exchange of ideas between the participants, enough time
for discussion will be ensured.

A programme will be published at the workshop web site
upon notification of the authors and receiving the
camera ready versions of the submissions.
