> The International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration
> October 25-27 in Orlando, Florida, USA
> In-cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN and ACM SIGWEB, co-located with ACM
> OOPSLA 2009, peer-reviewed and archived in the ACM Digital Library
> The International Symposium on Wikis (WikiSym) is the premier conference
> dedicated to wikis and related open collaboration systems and processes.
> WikiSym 2009 aims to explore and extend the thriving wiki community,
> bringing together researchers, practitioners, writers and scholars to
> gather, discuss and share knowledge and experience on all areas related
> to wikis and wiki philosophy, ranging from social to technical, and from
> theoretical to experience studies.
> The symposium combines a rigorously reviewed research paper track with
> plenty of space for experience reports, discussions of work in progress,
> demonstrations, tutorials, and lively informal last minute sessions in
> open space and WikiFest sessions.
> This year, WikiSym will be held in Orlando, Florida, USA---a city with a
> tropical climate, poolside fruity drinks, and world-class entertainment
> opportunities for adults and families.
> == IMPORTANT DATES ==
> * April 2nd: Submission deadline for research papers, experience

> invites contributions in a wide range of fields:
> * computer science and technology
> * human-computer interaction
> * communications and media studies
> * education
> * information and library science
> * history, political science, geography
> * linguistics, discourse analysis, language studies
> * business, marketing, law
> * natural sciences, medicine
> Topics of special interest to the symposium include, but are not limited to:
> * social software for collaboration and work group processes
> * wiki user experiences, usability, and discourse analysis
> * reputation systems, quality assurance processes
> * scalability---social and technical
> * wiki technologies and implementations
> * translation and multilingual wiki content
> * educational applications
> * wiki for non-textual media (images, video, audio)
> * content dynamics and wiki evolution
> * wiki journalism
> * wiki archiving and versioning
> * wiki administration: dealing with abuse and resolving conflict
> * wiki and the semantic web, knowledge management, tacit knowledge
> * wiki for small audiences (departmental and family wikis)
> * legal issues (copyright, licensing)
> * visualization of wiki structure
> * wiki fiction
> == RESEARCH PAPERS ==
> Research papers present integrative reviews or original reports of
> substantive new work: theoretical, empirical, or in the development or
> deployment of novel systems. We encourage emphasizing lessons learned
> and providing a clear concise message to the audience about the
> relevance of the work. The paper must place your work in context within
> the field, citing related work and indicating clearly what aspects of
> the work are new.
> Research papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee to meet
> rigorous academic standards of publication. They should be written in
> English and must not exceed 10 pages (for full papers) or 4 pages (for
> short papers). Papers will be reviewed both with respect to conceptual
> quality and clarity of presentation. Authors of accepted papers are
> expected to attend the conference in order to present the paper.
> Accepted submissions will be published in the WikiSym proceedings and
> archived in the ACM Digital Library. Submitted papers should use the ACM
> SIG Proceedings Format, see:
> == EXPERIENCE REPORTS ==
> Experience reports are an integral part of the conference program. These
> reports provides a large group of peers the opportunity to learn from a
> project's experience; they explore how concepts that sound good on paper
> (and at conferences!) work on real projects. They are a valuable means
> of communicating experiences, especially at the "bleeding edge". Many
> attendees want to find out what it is like to start a company wiki, use
> a wiki in classroom education, or build a political campaign around a
> wiki. Experience reports present experience and reflections, together
> with supporting evidence for any claims made. And they particularly
> include reports that discuss both benefits and drawbacks of the
> approaches used. Reports may focus on a particular aspect of technology
> usage and practice, or describe broad project experiences. Some reports
> focus on people, process or related challenges.
> == WORKSHOPS ==
> Workshops provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to
> discuss and learn about topics that require extended engagement such as
> new systems, research methods, standards and formats. A workshop should
> require participants to engage with each other for at least half a day.
> For shorter sessions, please consider WikiSym's open space format. A
> workshop proposal should consist of approximately two pages describing
> what you intend to do and how your session will meet the criteria
> described above. It should include a concise abstract, proposed time
> frame (half-day, full-day) and one-paragraph biographies of all people
> relevant to the submission. Workshop proposals will be reviewed and
> selected for their interest to the community. Each workshop will be
> allocated a half-day or a full-day and a room.
> == PANELS ==
> Panels provide an interactive forum for bringing together people with
> interesting points of view to discuss compelling wiki issues. Panels
> involve participation from both the panelists and audience members in a
> lively discussion. Proposals for panels should consist of approximately
> two pages describing what you intend to do and how your session will
> meet the criteria described above. It should include a concise abstract
> and one-paragraph biographies of all people relevant to the submission.
> A panel submission will be reviewed and selected for their interest to
> the community. Each panel will be given a 90-minute time slot.
> == POSTERS ==
> Poster presentations enable researchers to present late-breaking
> results, significant work in progress, or work that is best communicated
> in conversation. WikiSym's lively poster sessions let conference
> attendees exchange ideas one-on-one with authors, and let authors
> discuss their work in detail with those attendees most deeply interested
> in the topic.
> Poster proposals may describe original research, engineering, or
> experience reports. Submissions should consist of two page extended
> abstract outlining the content of the poster. Successful applicants will
> be invited display a poster, 1x2m in size, at a special plenary session
> of the Symposium.
> == DEMONSTRATIONS ==
> Wikis are intended to be used, and no format is better suited for
> demonstrating the utility of new wiki research and technology than
> showing and using it. If you would like to demonstrate new features or
> products, this is the place! Demonstrations give presenters an
> opportunity to show running systems and gather feedback. Demo
> submissions will be reviewed based on their relevance to the community.
> A submission should be one page in length, with a title, and a short
> description of the demo. The description should include what you plan
> to demo, what you hope to get out of demoing, and how the audience will
> benefit. A short note of any special technical requirements may be included.
> == WIKI FEST ==
> WikiFest is a conference session devoted to helping you start and grow a
> successful wiki in your organization. Proposals should showcase a wiki
> adoption strategy or example, with emphasis on how others can apply your
> strategy to their own wiki.
> Topics to be covered:
> * Tools---Choose the right wiki software for your needs
> * Adoption---How to run a pilot, establish a core group of users, and
> grow usage.
> * Uses---How does your team use a wiki? How has it helped your productivity?
> * Obstacles---What are they, and how can you avoid or fix them?
> == DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM ==
> The Doctoral Symposium is an interactive forum for doctoral students to
> receive present and discuss their doctoral work. Students who are at
> least one year away from dissertation completion are invited to submit
> to the Doctoral Symposium. Students beginning their research are
> especially invited to attend.
> To submit a proposal send a 2-3 pages description of your dissertation
> research, including:
> * A description of your work
> * The goals---what contributions will your research generate?
> * The approach---what is being performed to achieve the goals? How will
> results be validated?
> Additionally, your adviser must send a brief statement of your
> dissertation progress to date and a statement of recommendation to the
> Doctoral Symposium chair.
> == HOW TO SUBMIT ==
> Please submit your papers or proposals in PDF format through our
> submission system at the WikiSym website (available in early 2009).
> * http://www.wikisym.org/ws2009
> All accepted submissions will be published in the proceedings and
