WikiSym 2008

Published by at 1:24 pm under Conferences

WikiSym2008 in Porto was a great success. The organization was superb, and Ademar Aguiar and his colleagues did a wonderful job. Moreover, I really felt the conference reached a level of cohesion I had not seen before. There was a feeling of cooperation among people working with different technological approaches. Even more impressive, I found a real harmony that encompassed people taking the human perspective of wikis as well as people working on technology. The two most interesting ideas I saw were involved wikis for knowledge mangement in organizations (a popular theme in doctoral research) and glimpses of a new kind of end-user programming within wikis. WikiSym 2009 will be held in Orlando, USA, at the same time as the OOPSLA conference in the same location. – Robert Biddle
