Call For Papers

SemWiki2008, the third workshop on Semantic Wikis, aims at reviewing the
progress that has been made in the field of Semantic Wikis since the last
workshops in 2006. We are interested in reviewing existing semantic wiki
systems against the core wiki principles and thus identifying possibilities
to improve them, in applying semantic technologies to existing wiki sites
such as Wikipedia in order to make them even more productive for mass
collaboration, but also in innovative, entirely new ideas for semantic
wikis.

Semantic Wikis try to combine the strengths of Semantic Web (machine
processable, data integration, complex queries) and Wiki (easy to use and
contribute, strongly interconnected, collaborativeness) technologies. Goals
are diverse and include:

* simple annotations of existing Wiki content;
* tools that guide users from informal knowledge contained in texts to
more formal structures;
* full-fledged tools for ontology editing where the text is no longer in
the focus of the system.

Semantic Wikis contain in an integrated fashion many of the core challenges
of the Semantic Web community: authoring, versioning, interlinked data,
semantic browsing, semantic annotating, semantic diffs, semantic search and
getting overview. In a Semantic Wiki, such methods have to be integrated
into a coherent whole, while still remaining lightweight and easy to use.
In this workshop, we investigate how these challenges can be tackled in an
integrated fashion.

=== Important Dates (all dates GMT) ===

* Paper submission: February 22, 2008
(papers, posters, demos, position papers)
* Notification of acceptance: April 4, 2008
* Camera ready deadline: April 18, 2008
* Workshop: 1st or 2nd June 2008

=== Call for Contributions ===

We invite submissions as full and short papers, as well as posters/demos.
Papers should describe original, unpublished research and must not be under
review by another conference, journal, or workshop. Authors of the highest
quality contributions will be invited to present their work at the
workshop. Since Semantic Wikis are a very practical topic, we are also very
interested in poster and demo submissions. Posters and Demos should
describe
prototypical implementations of systems related to the workshop topics.
Highest quality submissions will be presented in a separate poster/demo
session.

Contributions should adhere to the following formats:

* Papers 5-15 pages
* Posters/Demos 2-5 pages
* Short/Position Papers: 2-5 pages

Papers should be formatted using the standard LNCS format and should
include an abstract of no more than 120 words.

Authors will be required to submit their camera ready versions using SALT
(semantically annotated LaTeX; http://salt.semanticauthoring.org). It
allows authors to annotate their articles directly with semantic markup.
This semantic markup will be used to extract and publish metadata of the
submissions on the Semantic Web. A specialized LaTeX template will be
provided by the workshop organisers that allows to easily add these
annotations.

=== Proceedings ===

Pre-proceedings will appear at the time of the conference online and in
print. Post-proceedings will be published in the CEUR-WS series.

=== Topics of Interest ===

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Text-Based Semantic Authoring
* Acquisition of Formal Knowledge from Structured Text
* Wikipedia and the Semantic Web
* Mining Wikipedia
* extending Wikipedia with semantic web features
* ...
* Collaborative Authoring of Formal Knowledge
* Continuous and Integrated Knowledge Usage and Refinement
* Usability and empirical studies of semantic wikis and human factors
* Application of semantic wikis in
* E-learning
* software engineering
* knowledge engineering
* and other domains
* Semantic Wikis in Enterprises
* New Ways of Authoring, Browsing and Navigating Semantically Enhanced
Data * Reusing data from Semantic Wikis in other systems
* Personal Semantic Wikis

=== Programme ===

* Invited talk: Corporate Knowledge Management with Semantic Wikis at SUN
* Presentations of research and position papers
* Poster and demo session
* Joint dinner, including a discussion on standardisation of semantic wiki
data formats and ontologies (building on existing work such as WSR 3;
http://www.wikisym.org/wiki/index.php/WSR_3).

=== Organisation ===

The workshop is supported by EU FP7 project KIWI and EU FP6 project
NEPOMUK.

Workshop co-ordinators:

* Christoph Lange, Jacobs University Bremen (DE)
* Sebastian Schaffert, Salzburg Research (AT)
* Hala Skaf-Molli, LORIA INRIA-LORRAINE/Nancy-Université (FR)
* Max Völkel, FZI/Universität Karlsruhe (TH) (DE)
