CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Wikis for Software Engineering Workshop
Sunday, October 21, 2007
at WikiSym 2007
October 21-23, 2007
The use of wikis in software engineering dates back to 1995, when
Ward Cunningham created the first ever wiki (known as the Wiki) as
a platform for discussing patterns and software development efforts.
The simplicity and effectiveness of wikis as a medium for collaborative
authoring has lead to their explosive popularity across many domains,
and attention has largely shifted to those domains.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers, practitioners,
and enthusiasts interested in exploring the potential of wikis as
an effective tool to support software engineering activities.
Specifically, it is an opportunity to:
* Learn from the knowledge and experience gained in using wikis
for software engineering.
* Identify benefits and best practices.
* Identify limitations and challenges.
* Develop an agenda for future research and development to advance
the state of the art.
* Initiate new collaborations between researchers and practitioners.
Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
o Reports on experiences in using wikis to support software
o Wikis in software engineering educational settings.
o Practices and tips you would like to share.
o Evaluation of specific wiki implementations and features.
o Integration of wikis with software engineering tools
(IDEs, modeling, test, Q&A, configuration management, etc.).
o Wikis as front-ends or as actual knowledge management platforms
in software projects.
o Wikis as collaboration tools in global software development.
* Extensions and tools
o Wiki engines with specialized support for software projects.
o Specific markup languages for software development.
o Tools based on wiki principles.
o Mechanisms for preserving the semantic connection between wikis
and software artifacts.
How To Participate
We are interested in a lively debate.
The first part of the workshop will consist of short presentations and
demos (up to 15 minutes). The second part will be an open discussion
with an opportunity for participants to offer "lightning talks" in the
To present a talk in the first part, you are invited to submit a simple
presentation proposal in PDF format (1-2 pages), containing an abstract
and the objectives of your presentation. We encourage everything from
experience reports and position papers to tool demos and even
an "I have a dream" talks. If a paper or presentation is available,
please attach it to your submission.
Submissions should be sent to pfm at sei.cmu.edu, till *12th October*.
A quick feedback on early submissions will be promptly provided.
* Invited talk by Ward Cunningham, AboutUs
* Short presentations and demos
* Posters at Coffee-break
* Open discussion
