WIKISYM 2012 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

http://www.wikisym.org/2012/01/17/wikisym-2012-call-for-participation/

8th International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration

August 27-29, 2012 | Linz, Austria

The International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym)
is the premier conference on open collaboration and related
technologies. In 2012, WikiSym celebrates its 8th year of scholarly,
technical and community innovation in Linz, Austria.  We are excited
this year to be collocated with Ars Electronica, the premier digital
art and science meeting that attracts over 35,000 attendees per year.

Submissions are invited for the following categories:

April 7, 2012 - Research Papers, Panels, Workshops and Experience Reports
April 27, 2012 - Doctoral Symposium
May 30, 2012 - Notification of Acceptance for Research Papers, Panels,
Workshops and Experience reports
June 8, 2012 - Posters and Demos due
June 22, 2012 - Posters and Demos announced

The conference program will include a peer-reviewed research track,
experience reports, workshops, posters, demos, a doctoral consortium,
invited keynotesand panel speakers. As always, the
participant-organized Open Space track will run throughout the
conference. Evening social events will follow, because wiki folks know
the value of a good party for sparking conversation and collaboration.
Finally, WikiSym co-occurs with Ars Electronica, and we are arranging
experiences where conference attendees can enjoy this innovative and
unusual event.

Topics appropriate for 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 other open resources, tools, and
practices in fields and application areas, for example:

Open source software development and use
Education and Open Educational Resources
E-government, open government, and public policy
Law/Intellectual Property (including Creative Commons)
Journalism (including participatory journalism)
Art and Entertainment (including collaborative and audience-involved art)
Science (including collaboratories)
Publishing (including open access and open review models)
Business (including open and collaborative management styles)

In addition to research and development topics, WikiSym also invites
innovative proposals for open, collaborative art and performance.
These proposals should be made directly to the conference chairs.

GENERAL SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION

All accepted submissions will be published in the WikiSym proceedings
and archived in the ACM Digital Library. Long and short research
papers will be rigorously peer reviewed and treated as archival
publications. Submissions to other tracks will also be reviewed and
appear in the ACM DL, but they are considered to be non-archival and
may be used as the basis for later publications. Authors of research
papers should use the ACM/CHI SIG Proceedings Format, and other
contribution types will use the ACM/CHI Extended Abstracts Format.
Templates for both formats are available
athttp://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html.

General submission instructions will be posted and the conference
submission site opened around March 1. Instructions for the various
contribution types are below.

Research Papers – Long (up to 10 pages) and Short (up to 4 pages)

Research papers present integrative reviews or original reports of
substantive new work: theoretical, empirical, and/or in the design,
development and/or deployment of novel systems.
Research papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee to meet
rigorous academic standards of publication. Papers will be reviewed
for relevance, conceptual quality, innovation and clarity of
presentation. They should be written in English and must not exceed 10
pages (for full papers) or 4 pages (for short papers). At least one
author of accepted papers is required to attend the conference in
order to present the paper.

Workshops (up to 6 pages, Extended Abstracts format)

Workshops provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to
discuss and learn about topics that require in-depth, extended
engagement such as new systems, research methods, standards, and
formats.

Workshop proposals should describe what you intend to do and how your
session will meet the criteria described above. It should include a
concise abstract, proposed time frame (half-day or full-day), what you
plan to do during the workshop, and one-paragraph biographies of all
organizers. Workshop proposals will be reviewed and selected for their
interest to the community. Each accepted workshop will be provided
with a meeting room for either a half or full day. Organizers may also
request technology and materials (projector, flip pads, etc).

Panels (up to 6 pages, Extended Abstracts format)

Panels provide an interactive forum for bringing together people with
interesting points of view to discuss compelling issues around open
collaboration. Panels involve participation from both the panelists
and audience members in a lively discussion. Proposals for panels
should describe the topics and goals and explain how the panel will be
organized and how the Wikisym community will benefit. It should
include a concise abstract and one-paragraph biographies of panelists
and moderators. Panel submissions will be reviewed and selected for
their interest to the community. Each panel will be given a 90-minute
time slot.

Experience Reports (up to 16 pages, Extended Abstracts format)

Experience reports are an integral part of the conference program.
These are opportunities to discuss how ideas that sound good on paper
(and at conferences!) work in real life projects and deployments. Many
attendees want to learn from people on the front lines what it is like
to do things like start a company wiki, use open collaboration tools
in a classroom, or build a political campaign around open
collaboration systems. Experience reports are not research papers;
their goal is to present experience and reflections on a particular
case, and they are reviewed for usefulness, clarity and reflection.
Strong experience reports discuss both benefits and drawbacks of the
approaches used and clearly call out lessons learned. Reports may
focus on a particular aspect of technology usage and practice, or
describe broad project experiences.

Posters (up to 4 pages, Extended Abstracts format)

Poster presentations enable researchers to present late-breaking
results, significant work in progress, or work that is best
communicated in conversation. WikiSym’s lively poster sessions let
conference attendees exchange ideas one-on-one with authors, and let
authors discuss their work in detail with those attendees most deeply
interested in the topic. Poster proposals may describe original
research, engineering, or experience reports. Successful applicants
will display their posters, up to 1x2m in size, at a special session
during the Symposium.

Demos (up to 4 pages, Extended Abstracts format)

No format is better suited for demonstrating the utility of new
collaboration technologies than showing and using them. Demonstrations
give presenters an opportunity to show running systems and gather
feedback. Demo submissions should provide a setup for the demo, a
specific description of what you plan to demo, what you hope to get
out of demoing, and how the audience will benefit. A short note of any
special technical requirements should be included. Demo submissions
will be reviewed based on their relevance to the community.

Doctoral Symposium

The WikiSym 2012 Doctoral Symposium is a forum in which Ph.D. students
can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of
experienced researchers and practitioners. The symposium will be held
on Tuesday August 28 on the campus of Johannes Kepler University. More
information about the symposium’s leaders, goals, submission process
and criteria, and funding will be posted shortly.

Open Space

For short and informal opportunities to organize discussion,
brain-storming, and other collaborative activities, the Open Space
track will run throughout WikiSym. Open Space is an entirely
participant-organized track and requires no submission or review.

Note on Publications

Work submitted to Wikisym is published in the ACM digital library.
This means it is not open access.  However, ACM has a very new service
called ACM Author-izer which allows authors to post official copies of
their papers on personal websites for people to access, even if those
people do not have access to the ACM digital library.  We see this as
a step to open access and are pleased to support this service.
