Title: Semantic Wikis: The Wiki Way to the Semantic Web    (1OA5)

Format: '''a 6-month mini-series comprising Talks, Panel Discussions, Online Discourse and Face-to-face Meetings.    (1NRO)

Description & Objectives: This Semantic Wiki mini-series, co-organized by FZI Karlsruhe, Mayo Clinic, Ontolog, RPI Tetherless World Constellation and Salzburg Research, Austria, represents a collaborative effort between members from academia, research, software engineering, semantic web and ontology communities. The 6-month mini-series intends to bring together developers, administrators and users of semantic wikis, and provide a platform where they can conveniently share ideas and insights. Through a series of (mainly virtual) talks, panel discussions, online discourse and even face-to-face meetings, participants will survey the state-of-the-art in semantic wiki technology and get exposure to exemplary use cases and applications. Together, they will study trends, challenges and the outlook for semantic wikis, and explore opportunities for collaboration in this very promising technology, approach or philosophy that people has labeled "semantic wiki."    (1NRP)

The face-to-face workshop at the AAAI-SS-09 would make a great concluding event for the mini-series! ... unless we either want to use session-6 as the concluding session of the virtual events, or we feel like extending the mini-series for a few more months, because there is so much more material to cover (and the interest and support is there.)    (1NR2)
