Research Papers and Practitioner Reports

Research papers present integrative reviews or original reports of substantive new work: theoretical, empirical, or in the development or deployment of novel systems. We encourage emphasizing lessons learned and providing a clear concise message to the audience about the relevance of the work. The paper must place your work in context within the field, citing related work and indicating clearly what aspects of the work are new.

Practitioner reports should present actual experience and reflection, discussing benefits and drawbacks of approaches used or project experiences.

Research papers and practitioner reports will be reviewed by the Program Committee to meet rigorous academic standards of publication. They should be written in English and will normally not exceed 10 pages (for full papers) or 5 pages (for short papers), although long papers may extend to 15 pages if necessary. Papers will be reviewed both with respect to conceptual quality and clarity of presentation. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference in order to present the paper.

Accepted submissions will be provided as part of the conference proceedings. They will be published in the ACM Digital Library and can be referenced as papers that appeared in the "Proceedings of the 2008 International Symposium on Wikis (WikiSym 2008)".

Submitted papers should use the ACM SIG Proceedings Format, see:
