Registration is now open for WikiSym 2007, convening October 21
through 23 in chic, sophisticated, metropolitan Montreal, Quebec.

**Deadline for early registration is October 11th**


WikiSym is the only international scientific conference dedicated to
wikis. It brings together wiki researchers, practitioners, and
users. The goal of the symposium is to explore and extend our growing
community. It has a rigorously reviewed research paper track as well
as plenty of space for practitioner reports, demonstrations, and open
discussions. Anyone who is involved in using, researching, or
developing wikis is invited to WikiSym 2007!

We recognize that the online world is always evolving, and therefore
welcome people interested in other online media consistent with the
wiki philosophy of being open, organic and participatory.


Our headline speakers this year include many of the thought leaders on
wiki. Our keynote speaker will be Jonathan Grudin (Microsoft Research),
one of the world's leading researcher on Computer Supported
Collaborative Work. Ward Cunningham (AboutUs), inventor of wiki
and founding father of our field, will give the closing talk. Peter
Thoeny (StructuredWikis), creator of TWiki, will give a half day
tutorial on wikis in the workplace.

Our program also includes two headline speakers from ooPSLA, our host
conference. Jim Purbrick and Mark Lentczner, creators of Second Life,
will talk about this collaboratively built 3D virtual world. Peter
Turchi, award-winning author of "Maps of the Imagination", will talk
about the relationships between creative writing, making maps, and

That's just a sampling of what makes WikiSym the conference of choice
for wiki researchers.

We are proud to offer you WikiSym and look forward to sharing the
experience with you in Montral this fall.
