The International Symposium on Wikis Wiki Research and Practice in One Event!
September 8-10, 2008, Porto, Portugal
In-cooperation with ACM SIGWEB * ACM-DL Archived
The International Symposium on Wikis (WikiSym) is the only conference dedicated to all wiki research and practice -- lightweight, open, collaborative systems for recording and refining ideas and information.
WikiSym 2008 aims to explore and extend the thriving wiki community, again bringing together researchers, practitioners, writers and scholars to gather, discuss and share knowledge and experience on all areas related to wikis and wiki philosophy, ranging from social to technical, and from theoretical to experience studies.
The Symposium combines a rigorously reviewed research paper track, with plenty of space for practitioner reports, discussion of work in progress, demonstrations, tutorials, and lively informal last minute sessions within OpenSpace and WikiFest sessions.
This year, WikiSym will be held in Porto, Portugal, one of Europe's most ancient cities. Porto's airport is well served by discount air carriers, making it readily and economically accessible. Famous for its wine, its medieval quarters, and its storied history, Porto will provide a superb backdrop for innovation, discussion and wiki festivities.
