Interest in wiki research has surged recently, and I'll be giving a couple of talks on the subject in early 2006.

  • January 11, 2006: Humbold Universtät Berlin, group of Prof. Oliver Günther
  • February 1, 2006: Universität Hannover, group of Prof. Wolfgang Nejdl
  • February 8, 2006: Wissensmanagement-Gesellschaft, Berlin

While these talks are all public instances (in principle), I'd like to ask you to contact me first if you want to attend a talk. Here is the talk data:

Title: Wiki Research

Abstract: A wiki is a simple but powerful tool for collaborative work processes. Invented in 1995, wikis have become an explicitly recognized research topic of their own only this year. This talk reports about WikiSym 2005, the first wiki research conference and lays out a first attempt at defining the field of wiki research. Specific attention is paid to semantic wikis, their relationship to knowledge management, and ontology-based applications.
