> === Executive Summary ===
> SemWiki2006 is the first workshop on Semantic Wikis. It aims to
> explore and collect the different ideas and motivations that have
> lead to the recent emergence of so-called "Semantic Wiki" systems.    (06)

> === Workshop Topics ===
> Semantic Wikis try to combine the strengths of Semantic Web
> (machine processable, data integration, complex queries) and Wiki
> (easy to use and contribute, strongly interconnected,
> collaborativeness) technologies. Goals are diverse and include:
>  o  simple annotations of existing Wiki content;
>  o  tools that guide users from informal knowledge contained in texts to more 
>formal structures;
>  o  full-fledged tools for ontology editing where the text is no longer in 
>the focus of the system.
> In the future, Semantic Wiki systems might play an important role
> for "knowledge acquisition", enabling non-technical users to
> contribute to the Semantic Web.    (07)

> === Important Dates (all dates GMT) ===
>  o  Abstract submission
>     for papers, poster, demo, position papers:         7 March 2006
>  o  Full submission
>     for papers, poster, demo, position papers:        28 March 2006
>  o  Notification to authors:                          20 April 2006
>  o  Camera-ready version:                             30 April 2006
>  o  Workshop in Budva, Montenegro, half-day:     11/12th June  2006
> The workshop will be held as a half-day workshop at the European
> Semantic Web Conference on the 11th or 12th of June in Budva,
> Montenegro.    (08)

> === Call for Contributions ===
> We invite submissions as full and short papers, as well as
> posters/demos. Papers should describe original, unpublished
> research and must not be under review by another conference,
> journal, or workshop. Authors of the highest quality contributions
> will be invited to present their work at the workshop (probably 20
> minutes). Since Semantic Wikis are a very practical topic, we are
> also very interested in poster and demo submissions. Posters and
> Demos should describe prototypical implementations of systems
> related to the workshop topics. Highest quality submissions will
> be presented in a separate poster/demo session. Contributions
> should adhere to the following formats:
>  o  Papers 5-15 pages, LNCS
>  o  Posters/Demos 2-5 pages, LNCS
>  o  Short/Position Papers: 2-5 pages, LNCS
> In this workshop, we will explore a new form of publication, the
> so-called "ABCDE "-format. This format has been proposed recently
> by User:Anita de Waard (Elsevier) and allows authors to annotate
> their articles directly with semantic markup. This semantic markup
> will be used in the electronic workshops proceedings to facilitate
> searching and browsing. A specialised Latex template will be
> provided by the workshop organisers that allows to easily add
> these annotations.  You can start using the Springer LNCS template
> and later switch to LNCS-ABCDEF (which will be published on this
