WikiSym 2006 CFP - (three weeks left for technical papers!)

James Noble
Dear conference committee members

(especially Helmut, Sunir and Kouichirou, since you're the Publicity
People)

Could you please post our CFP out to as many people (who just might be
interested) as humanly possible?

I have already started sending this out to the following mailing
lists:

 [hidden email]
 [hidden email]
 [hidden email]
 [hidden email]
 SIGWEB mailing list
 [hidden email]

but it is really important for potential authors (and thus, the most
likely potential attendees) to see the CFP from as many different
directions as possible - and ideally from people they know and whose
judgement they trust. This means you!

I think three weeks out from the deadline gives people enough time to
decide to write a paper, and to get something in - so please, do
encourage your friends, colleagues (and strangers you meet in dark
alleys - says Dirk!) to consider submitting to WikiSym; or even
consider submitting yourself.

but for now, the most important thing is to distribute this CFP.

thanks (in adavnce) for your help.

cheers

James Noble,
programme chair WikiSym 2006




CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

2006 International Symposium on Wikis (WikiSym 2006)

Sponsored by ACM SIGWEB

See http://www.wikisym.org/ws2006

Research paper submission deadline: April 15, 2006



OVERVIEW

The 2006 International Symposium on Wikis brings together wiki
researchers, practitioners, and users. The goal of the symposium is to
explore and extend our growing community. The symposium has a
rigorously reviewed research paper track as well as plenty of space
for practitioner reports, demonstrations, and discussions. Anyone who
is involved in using, researching, or developing wikis is invited to
WikiSym 2006! To learn more about the Wiki Symposium, feel free to
browse last year's program
(http://www.wikisym.org/ws2005/program.html), the proceedings
(http://www.wikisym.org/ws2005/proceedings), and its wiki
(http://ws2005.wikisym.org). For additional 2006 program information,
including confirmed speakers Angela Beesley, Doug Engelbart, Mark
Bernstein, and Ward Cunningham please see the main page
(http://www.wikisym.org/ws2006).

We are seeking submissions for

* research papers
* practitioner reports
* demonstrations
* workshops
* panels

Research paper and practitioner report
submissions as well as workshop proposals are due

* April 15, 2006

Panel and demonstration submissions are due

* May 1, 2006

Topics of interest to the symposium include, but are not limited to:

* wikis as social software
* wiki user behavior, user dynamics
* wiki user experiences, usability
* information dynamics in wikis
* work group processes, wiki-based collaboration
* reputation systems, quality assurance processes
* wiki implementation experiences and technology
* wiki administration, processes, dealing with abuse
* wiki scalability, social and technical
* wikis and the semantic web/ontologies, semantic wikis
* domain-specific/special-purpose wikis
* wikis in education



SUBMISSION DETAILS

Research papers will be reviewed by the committee to meet rigorous
academic standards of publication. Research papers are expected to
advance the state of the art by describing substantiated new research
or novel technical results or by reporting on significant experience
or experimentation. They are reviewed both with respect to conceptual
quality and clarity of presentation.

Accepted research papers will be provided as part of the conference
proceedings. They will be put into the ACM Digital Library and can be
referenced as papers that appeared in the Proceedings of the 2006
International Symposium on Wikis. At the symposium, the presenter will
be given a 25min + 5min Q&A presentation slot.  Research papers should
not be longer than 10000 words and 20 pages and should meet the ACM
SIG Proceedings Format, see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html.

Practitioner reports will be reviewed for suitability of presentation
to the community. The primary evaluation criterion is the interest to
the community. Practitioner reports will be provided as part of the
conference proceedings handed out at the symposium and can be
referenced as papers that appeared in the Proceedings of the 2006
International Symposium on Wikis as well.  Practitioner reports should
not be longer than 6000 words and 12 pages and should meet the ACM SIG
Proceedings Format.

Demonstration, workshop, and panel submissions will be reviewed for
their interest to the community. A submission should consist of two
pages describing what you intend to do and how you meet this
criterion. It should include a 100-word abstract and one-paragraph
bios of all people relevant to the submission. Demonstrations will be
presented in a joint demonstration session, workshops will get a
half-day or a full-day and a room of their own (depending on your
request), and panels will get a 90min slot at the symposium.

Please submit your papers or proposals in PDF format by the respective
deadline through our submission system, which will be available
through the WikiSym website. Questions should be directed respectively
at [hidden email] (research papers and practitioner reports),
[hidden email] (workshops), [hidden email] (panels), or
[hidden email] (demonstrations).



SYMPOSIUM LOGISTICS

The 2006 International Symposium on Wikis will be held at the Radisson
SAS H.C. Andersen Hotel in Odense, Denmark, August 21-23, 2006. A
special (reduced) hotel rate has been negotiated. WikiSym 2006 will be
co-located with the ACM Hypertext 2006 conference (back-to-back), and

register for WikiSym and Hypertext 2006.  Registration is handled
through the ACM Hypertext website.

Re: WikiSym 2006 CFP - (three weeks left for technical papers!)

phoebe ayers
While this message was sent to the wrong list, I'd like to take this
opportunity to point out that the *Wikimania* Call for Participation
is also available and needs to be distributed as widely as possible:
http://wikimania2006.wikimedia.org/wiki/Call_for_participation
Translated versions are available here:
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2006_Call_for_Participation

The due date is the same as WikiSym, April 15 (this was unplanned!)

cheers,
Phoebe
