The International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration

 

http://wikisym.org/ws2010/Call+for+Papers

 

July 7-8-9 in Gdansk, Poland.

 

Co-located with Wikimania 2010 (Intl. Conference on Wikimedia Foundation projects, http://wikimania2010.wikimedia.org).

 

Peer-reviewed and archived in the ACM Digital Library.

 

SUMMARY

 

WikiSym, the International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration,

will be held this summer in Gdansk, Poland. Starting this year, WikiSym

aims to explicitly broaden its scope, exploring not only the thriving

wiki community, but also other open movements and open collaboration

initiatives. This includes related areas such as open online communities,

collaborative creation of multimedia content (with or without wikis),

and open journalism and publishing, just to list a few examples.

 

Furthermore, our goal is to establish WikiSym as a venue for the exchange

of information, experiences and practices among an interdisciplinary

audience, including researchers, practitioners, industry representatives

and experts with a wide variety of different backgrounds.

 

As a result, WikiSym has established 3 complementary tracks to merge the

contributions from such a diverse community:

 

    * Wiki track: Focused on research in wiki technology,

    wiki websites, wiki communities, and in general any kind

    of initiative pivoting around wiki software.

 

    * Industry track: This new track will focus on the specific

    needs of enterprises and private companies interested in sharing

    and promoting their experiences around wikis and open collaboration

    projects/products/initiatives.

 

    * Open collaboration track: This track is a dedicated venue for

    sharing research results and experiences in initiatives that may not

    be built specifically on wiki software, but share the "wiki way"

    of organization. These may include open collaborations, open communities,

    and open movements that allow the interchange of ideas and contributions

    from participants with a range of interests and motivations.

 

Research manuscripts may be sent to any of these tracks.

However, submitting the same manuscript to more than one

track at the same time is not allowed. Therefore, please

select the most appropriate track for the topic covered in

your manuscript before submitting.

 

IMPORTANT DATES

 

    * March 7th: Submission deadline for research papers.

    * March 21st: Submission deadline for Doctoral Symposium proposals, posters, demonstrations, workshops, panels, tutorials.

    * May 4th: Notification of acceptance for research papers.

    * May 11th: Notification of acceptance for Doctoral Symposium proposals, posters, workshops, tutorials, panels.

    * July 7-9: WikiSym 2010!

 

Given the interdisciplinary nature of wikis and open

collaboration initiatives, WikiSym invites contributions in

a wide range of fields.

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:

 

http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html

 

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 page 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.

 

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 panelists. 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 a two-page extended

abstract outlining the content of the poster. Successful applicants will

be invited to 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 demonstrate, 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.
