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.
