WikiSym 2006 is the 2nd International Symposium on Wikis, co-located with ACM Hypertext 2006.


The 2006 Wiki Symposium brings together wiki researchers and practitioners in the historic and beautiful city of Odense, Denmark, on August 21-23, 2006. Participants will present, discuss, and move forward the latest advances in wiki contents, sociology, and technology. The symposium program offers invited talks by Angela Beesley ("How and Why Wikipedia Works"), Doug Engelbart and Eugene Eric Kim ("The Augmented Wiki"), Mark Bernstein ("Intimate Information") and Ward Cunningham ("Design Principles of Wikis").

The research paper track presents and discusses breaking wiki research, the panels let you listen to and contribute to top.css like "Wikis in Education" and "The Future of Wikis", and the workshops let you get active and contribute to on-going research and practitioner work with your peers. (Many workshops accept walk-ins, so it is not too late!) Equally important, Gerard Muller of the Danish Open Space Institute and Ted Ernst will facilitate an on-going open space track at the Wiki Symposium. So you can get active and involved in an organized fashion on any wiki topic you like. We believe this is how to get the most out of your experience at WikiSym 2006!

And, of course, if you can't wait, please join our conversation on wiki research and practice on the symposium wiki! For the program, please see the WikiSym 2006 program information.
