*8th International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym)
*August 27-29  -- Linz, Austria

Call for Participation: *Early Registration Deadline is July 29*

The International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym) is
the premier conference on open collaboration and related technologies. In
2012, WikiSym celebrates its 8th year of scholarly, technical and community
innovation in Linz, Austria.  We are excited this year to be collocated
with Ars Electronica <>, the premier digital art
and science meeting that attracts over 35,000 attendees per year. WikiSym
will take place in Linz, Austria at the Ars Electronica Center.

More details about attending can be found at: or by following the @
WikiSym <> twitter account.

Wikisym is a leading conference in understanding how individuals, groups,
organizations and society can use information and communication technology
to enable novel and meaningful collaboration and collective action.
 Researchers and practitioners from all over the world have gathered
together in these meetings to discuss and display their insights into this
important area of inquiry.

The conference program will include a peer-reviewed research track,
experience reports, workshops, posters, demos, a doctoral consortium,
invited keynotes and panel speakers. As always, the participant-organized
Open Space track will run throughout the conference. Evening social events
will follow, because wiki folks know the value of a good party for sparking
conversation and collaboration. Finally, WikiSym co-occurs with Ars
Electronica <>, and we are arranging experiences
where conference attendees can enjoy this innovative and unusual event.

Topics include all aspects of the people, tools, contexts, and content that
comprise open collaboration systems. For example:

   - Collaboration tools and processes
   - Social and cultural aspects of collaboration
   - Collaboration beyond text: images, video, sound, etc.
   - Communities and workgroups
   - Knowledge and information production
   - New media literacies
   - Open source software development and use
   - Education and Open Educational Resources
   - E-government, open government, and public policy
   - Law/Intellectual Property (including Creative Commons)
   - Journalism (including participatory journalism)
   - Art and Entertainment (including collaborative and audience-involved
   - Science (including collaboratories)
   - Publishing (including open access and open review models)
   - Business (including open and collaborative management styles)
