From WikiSym 2008

Jump to: navigation, search



Wikis are intended for use, and sometimes nothing demonstrates the utility of wiki features than to see and use them. Unlike Posters which largely talk about concepts, demos give presenters an opportunity to show off features and functions.

Who might demo


  • Wiki-centric vendors: do you represent a commercial, or opensource vendor wanting to reach an audience? Would you like to demonstrate a new feature, show improvements to a user interaction pattern in your latest release?
  • Wiki-plugin community: have you extended the reach of your technology base by integrating with into datawarehouses, workflow systems or project management technologies?
  • Impinging technologies: so you've got a knowledge management or semantic markup technology that solves wiki-problems better than a wiki?
  • Public-facing websites that use a wiki to power a set of interactions among a community.

Demo format

Demos are currently planned to be combined with Posters for informal showing to up to 5 people.

If you would be interested in having a slot to present more formally to a larger group, please contact Martin Cleaver

Getting space to demo

Please submit a one page description of your organisation and your role and/or project. Provide a short description of what you plan to demo, what you hope to get out of demoing and how audience will benefit from watching.

Power for your laptop will be supplied. Please tell us If you have other technical requirements and we will strive to meet your needs.
