CALL FOR PAPERS
Third Workshop on "Wikis for Software Engineering"
September 8, 2008
at WikiSym 2008
September 8-10, 2008
The use of wikis in software engineering dates back to 1995, when
Ward Cunningham created the first ever 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 vast popularity across many 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, analysis, modeling, Q&A, configuration management, etc.).
o Wikis as front-ends or as actual knowledge management platforms
in software projects.
o Wikis as plugins to software engineering tools.
o Wikis as mashups for software artifacts and tools
o Wikis as collaboration tools in global software development.
o Wikis as social tools for software project communities.
o Wikis as tools for agile 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
You are invited to submit a position paper or experience report of not
more than 6 pages. Submissions will be reviewed for quality and
We are interested in a lively debate. If you're attending WikiSym but
didn't submit a paper, you're also invited to join the workshop.
Submissions should be sent to pfm at sei.cmu.edu and follow the ACM SIG
Proceedings Format: http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html
The first part of the workshop will consist of short paper presentations.
The second part will be used for workgroup discussion sessions.
A detailed agend will be posted to http://www.wikis4se.org.
* Submission deadline: July 31
* Notification of acceptance: August 11
* Workshop date: September 8, 13:30-17:00 (time to be confirmed)
