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 (http://www.wikisym.org/ws2005/program.html), the proceedings (http://www.wikisym.org/ws2005/proceedings), and its wiki (http://ws2005.wikisym.org). Information about the 2006 program will be available at http://www.wikisym.org/ws2006. 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 SUBMISSION DETAILS 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 http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html. 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 [email protected] (research papers and practitioner reports), [email protected] (workshops), [email protected] (panels), or [email protected] (demonstrations).
