2006 International Symposium on Wikis (WikiSym 2006)

August 21-23, 2006, Odense, Denmark
Co-located with ACM Hypertext 2006
Sponsored by ACM SIGWEB


Research paper submission deadline: April 15, 2006


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
(, the proceedings
(, and its wiki
( For additional 2006 program information,
including confirmed speakers Angela Beesley, Doug Engelbart, Mark
Bernstein, and Ward Cunningham please see the main page

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


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

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 [log in to unmask] (research papers and practitioner reports),
[log in to unmask] (workshops), [log in to unmask] (panels), or
[log in to unmask] (demonstrations).


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
participants may register for the symposium alone, or may jointly
register for WikiSym and Hypertext 2006.  Registration is handled
through the ACM Hypertext website.
