WikiSym 2012

7.April 2012
Linz, Austria

8th International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration

The conference program will include a peer-reviewed research track, experience reports, workshops, posters, demos, a doctoral consortium, invited keynotes and panel speakers. As always, the participant-organized Open Space track will run throughout the conference. Evening social events will follow, because wiki folks know the value of a good party for sparking conversation and collaboration. Finally, WikiSym co-occurs with Ars Electronica, and we are arranging experiences where conference attendees can enjoy this innovative and unusual event.

Topics appropriate for submissions include all aspects of the people, tools, contexts, and content that comprise open collaboration systems. For example:

  • Collaboration tools and processes
  • Social and cultural aspects of collaboration
  • Collaboration beyond text: images, video, sound, etc.
  • Communities and workgroups
  • Knowledge and information production
  • New media literacies
  • Uses and impact of wikis and other open resources, tools, and practices in fields and application areas, for example:
    • Open source software development and use
    • Education and Open Educational Resources
    • E-government, open government, and public policy
    • Law/Intellectual Property (including Creative Commons)
    • Journalism (including participatory journalism)
    • Art and Entertainment (including collaborative and audience-involved art)
    • Science (including collaboratories)
    • Publishing (including open access and open review models)
    • Business (including open and collaborative management styles)

In addition to research and development topics, WikiSym also invites innovative proposals for open, collaborative art and performance.  These proposals should be made directly to the conference chairs.
