The 2013 Joint International Symposium on Open Collaboration (WikiSym +
OpenSym 2013) is the premier conference on open collaboration research and
practice, including wikis and social media, Wikipedia, free, libre, and
open source software, open access, open data and open government research.
WikiSym is in its 9th year and will be complemented by OpenSym, a new
conference on open collaboration research and practice and an adjunct to
the successful WikiSym conference series. WikiSym + OpenSym 2013 is the
first conference to bring together the different strands of open
collaboration research and practice, seeking to create synergies and
inspire new collaborations between computer scientists, social scientists,
legal scholars, and everyone interested in understanding open collaboration
and how it is changing the world. Read more about the conference at
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: COMMUNITY TRACK
The following types of papers can be submitted to the community track:
* Experience report long and short: A regular presentation slot (30min)
will be provided
* Workshop proposals: A workshop slot (half-day or full-day) is provided at
* Panel proposals: A session (90min) discussion slot for the panel will be
* Demo proposals: Space and time is provided during the demo session (90min)
* Tutorial proposals: A tutorial slot (90min) is provided at the conference
Submissions are reviewed by the community track committee for their
interest to the WikiSym + OpenSym community in general. For questions about
community track submissions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us:
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.
Experience reports can be long (up to 10 pages) or short (up to 4 pages). A
long experience report will receive a regular 30 minute presentation slot,
a short experience report will receive a shorter presentation slot.
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 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 + OpenSym 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.
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. All accepted demos will given space at a joint demo session (90
minutes) during the conference.
Tutorials tutorials are half-day classes, taught by experts, designed to
help professionals rapidly come up to speed on a specific technology or
methodology. Tutorials can be lecture-oriented or participatory. Tutorial
attendees deserve the highest standard of excellence in tutorial
preparation and delivery. Tutorial presenters are typically experts in
their chosen topic and experienced speakers skilled in preparing and
delivering educational presentations. When selecting tutorials, we will
consider the presenter’s knowledge of the proposed topic and past success
at teaching it.
SUBMISSION INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS
There are two submission deadlines, an early and a regular one. The early
deadline is for those who need to know early that their community track
submission has been accepted. This mostly applies to workshops that require
a program committee and their own paper submission and review process (as
opposed, for example, to walk-in workshops). Also, some may need the
additional time to raise funds and acquire a visa.
Submissions should follow the standard ACM SIG proceedings format. For
advice and templates, please see http://www.acm.org/sigs/**
All papers must conform at time of submission to the formatting
instructions and must not exceed the page limits, including all text,
references, appendices and figures. All submissions must in PDF format.
