CALL FOR PAPERS - WikiSym 2011 - 7th International Symposium on
Wikis and Open Collaboration
October 3-5, 2011 | Mountain View, California

http://www.wikisym.org/ws2011

The International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym) is
the premier conference on open collaboration and related technologies. In
2011, WikiSym celebrates its 7th year of scholarly, technical and
community innovation in Mountain View, California at the Microsoft
Research Campus in Silicon Valley.

Submissions are invited for the following categories, further details
are available on the conference website:

http://www.wikisym.org/ws2011/submitting:start

* Posters, Demos: May 13
* Doctoral Symposium: May 20
* Notification of Acceptance: June 17

The conference program will include a peer-reviewed research track, as
well as workshops, a doctoral consortium, invited keynotes and panel
speakers. Evening social events will follow, because wiki folks know the
value of a good party for sparking conversation and collaboration. As
always, Open Space, a participant-organized track will also run throughout
the conference. Many of the most innovative technology companies in the
world have a presence in Mountain View, which makes it an ideal venue for
hatching new ideas and thoughtful debate about collaborative computing
among technologists, researchers, educators, and activists.

Topics appropriate for research submissions 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
* Uses and impact of wikis and open resources in specific fields, such
as
     - Education/Open Educational Resources
     - Law/Intellectual Property
     - Journalism
     - Art
     - Science
     - Publishing
     - Business
     - Entertainment

In addition to research and development topics, WikiSym also invites
innovative proposals for wiki-style art and performance.
