Subject: Call for Participation: WikiSym 2012
8th International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym)
August 27-29  -- Linz, Austria

Call for Participation: Early Registration Deadline is July 29

The International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym) is the premier conference on open collaboration and related technologies. In 2012, WikiSym celebrates its 8th year of scholarly, technical and community innovation in Linz, Austria.  We are excited this year to be collocated with Ars Electronica, the premier digital art and science meeting that attracts over 35,000 attendees per year. WikiSym will take place in Linz, Austria at the Ars Electronica Center.

More details about attending can be found at: or by following the @WikiSym twitter account.

Wikisym is a leading conference in understanding how individuals, groups, organizations and society can use information and communication technology to enable novel and meaningful collaboration and collective action.  Researchers and practitioners from all over the world have gathered together in these meetings to discuss and display their insights into this important area of inquiry.

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, becausewiki 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 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
  • 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)

WikiSym is always worth a visit. I just booked my ticket and would be happy to meet other DokuWiki users in Linz.
Read this if you don't get any useful answers.

I plan to come, too. If somebody has some space for me to stay (a place on the floor would be enough) please let me know (I would also like to come a few days earlier), but I'll also look on CouchSurfing.
Did you like my help or work for DokuWiki (plugins)? Consider giving something back.
