This is an announcement for the Semantic MediaWiki Conference 'SMWCon Spring 2013'.


The Spring 2013 SMWCon will be held at Interactive Telecommunications Program (or ITP),

a department of New York University, in New York City, in the United States.

ITP is an incredibly creative place, located at 721 Broadway, between Washington Pl. and

Waverly Pl., in New York's Greenwich Village neighborhood.


March 20-22 2013.


This will be the 10th edition of the Semantic MediaWiki Conference!

SMWCon is open to everyone interested in collaborative knowledge creation using semantic wikis.

The event brings together developers, users, and organizations from the Semantic MediaWiki

community around the world.

In what is becoming a tradition, we will spend the first day with tutorials and a workshop for

those who want to learn more about Semantic MediaWiki and build from it. The second and

the third day of the conference will include talks from the developers and users of SMW.


We have started to form a program of the conference.

Since this is a community driven event, please visit the following wiki page to get news

about the program, add your name to the attendees list and register your talk:

It does not have to be formal and/or complete, however, you're welcome to share more

information about your talk, like a short abstract, and even desirable length. We are looking

for use cases, updates on existing projects, lightning talks, or even demos.


February 20 - deadlines to submit proposals of talks (the earlier the better)

March 20 - the conference itself

See you in New York!


Laurent Alquier, Program Chair
