******************************************************************
INTRODUCTION

The use of wikis in software engineering dates back to 1995, when
Ward Cunningham created the first ever wiki as a platform for
discussing patterns and software development efforts. The simplicity
and effectiveness of wikis as a medium for collaborative authoring
has lead to their vast popularity across many domains.


******************************************************************
GOALS

This workshop aims to bring together researchers, practitioners,
and enthusiasts interested in exploring the potential of wikis as
an effective tool to support software engineering activities.
Specifically, it is an opportunity to:
* Learn from the knowledge and experience gained in using wikis
   for software engineering.
* Identify benefits and best practices.
* Identify limitations and challenges.
* Develop an agenda for future research and development to advance
   the state of the art.
* Initiate new collaborations between researchers and practitioners.


******************************************************************
TOPICS

Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

* Experience
      o Reports on experiences in using wikis to support software
        engineering
      o Wikis in software engineering educational settings
      o Practices and tips you would like to share
      o Evaluation of specific wiki implementations and features

* Integration
      o Integration of wikis with software engineering tools
        (IDEs, analysis, modeling, Q&A, configuration management, etc.)
      o Wikis as front-ends or as actual knowledge management platforms
        in software projects
      o Wikis as plugins to software engineering tools
      o Wikis as mashups for software artifacts and tools
      o Wikis as collaboration tools in global software development
      o Wikis as social tools for software project communities
      o Wikis as tools for agile software development

* Extensions and tools
      o Wiki engines with specialized support for software projects
      o Specific markup languages for software development
      o Tools based on wiki principles
      o Mechanisms for preserving the semantic connection between wikis
        and software artifacts


******************************************************************
HOW TO PARTICIPATE

You are invited to submit a position paper, research paper or
experience report as a PDF file of no more than 11 pages.
and formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript
Formatting Guidelines, as defined for ICSE'2009:
http://www.cs.uoregon.edu/events/icse2009/calls/format/

Submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 PC members, for
quality and relevance,

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM and IEEE Digital
Libraries under Wikis4SE 2009 Workshop Proceedings as part of the
ICSE 2009 Workshop publications. ICSE will make the formal
proceedings available on an ICSE memory stick.

We are interested in a lively debate. If you're attending ICSE 2009 but
didn't submit a paper, you're also invited to join the workshop.


Submissions should be sent to submissions@wikis4se.org.


******************************************************************
AGENDA

The first part of the workshop will consist of short paper presentations.
The second part will be used for workgroup discussion sessions.
A detailed agenda will be posted to http://www.wikis4se.org.


******************************************************************
IMPORTANT DATES

* Submission deadline: January 26 (abstract), February 2 (paper)
* Notification of acceptance: February 9
* Camera-ready: February 16
* Workshop date: May 16
