International Symposium on Wikis (October 17-18, 2005)

The 2005 International Symposium on Wikis brings together wiki researchers, implementers, and users for the first time. The goal of the symposium is to find a voice for the community. The symposium has a rigorously reviewed research paper track as well as plenty of space for practitioner reports, demonstrations, and discussions. We are honored to announce that Ward Cunningham, the inventor and host of the original WikiWikiWeb, will present the opening keynote talk at WikiSym 2005. Anyone who is involved in using, researching, or developing wikis is invited to WikiSym 2005!

We are seeking submissions for

research papers
practitioner reports


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
wiki implementation experiences and technology
wiki administration, processes, dealing with abuse
wiki scalability, social and technical
domain-specific/special-purpose wikis
