== WikiSym  2008 - CALL FOR PAPERS

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 

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.
