Early Registration Deadline June 19! WikiSym 2006 CfP

Dirk Riehle-2
Hello all,

appended, please find the WikiSym 2006 CfP.
Please note the focus and support of Wikipedia and WMF projects.

We'd appreciate if you are interested that you
register for the Wiki Symposium before the early
registration deadline has passed (June 19). This
will save you cost and help us with final planning significantly.

Turns out, you can register but don't have to pay
right away. So even if you are waiting for travel
permission from your boss, you can already
register and pay later (or cancel with no hassles).





August 21-23, 2006, Odense, Denmark

This year's Wiki Symposium brings together wiki
researchers and practitioners in the historic and
beautiful city of Odense, Denmark, on August
21-23, 2006. Participants will present, discuss,
and move forward the latest advances in wiki
contents, sociology, and technology. The
symposium program offers invited talks by Angela
Beesley ("How and Why Wikipedia Works"), Doug
Engelbart and Eugene E. Kim ("The Augmented
Wiki"), Mark Bernstein ("Intimate Information")
and Ward Cunningham ("Design Principles of
Wikis"). The research paper track presents and
discusses breaking wiki research, the panels let
you listen to and contribute to topics like
"Wikis in Education" and "The Future of Wikis",
and the workshops let you get active and
contribute to on-going research and practitioner
work with your peers. (Many workshops accept
walk-ins, so it is not too late!) What's more,
for the first time, we will have an on-going
openspace track (to replace BOFs) so you can get
active and involved in an organized fashion on
any wiki topic you like. We believe this is how
to get the most out of your experience at WikiSym 2006!

And, of course, if you can't wait, please join
our conversation on wiki research and practice on
the symposium wiki at http://ws2006.wikisym.org
