    • These are 1-slide, 3-min (max) talks open to anyone who has something relevant to present. To get a slot please email your talk title, a one-paragraph abstract, and your slide to <>. Titles and Slides has to be received by end-of-day Wed 21-Jan-2009 to be scheduled in.     (1E1)
    • Mr. DoraiThodla (iMorph) - "SILKI � Semantically Improved Learning Wiki"     (1E2)

  • Shared-screen support (VNC session), if applicable, will be started 5 minutes before the call at:     (1H5)
    • view-only password: "ontolog"     (1H5A)
    • if you plan to be logging into this shared-screen option (which the speaker may be navigating), and you are not familiar with the process, please try to call in 5 minutes before the start of the session so that we can work out the connection logistics. Help on this will generally not be available once the presentation starts.     (1H5B)
    • people behind corporate firewalls may have difficulty accessing this. If that is the case, please download the slides above and running them locally. The speaker(s) will prompt you to advance the slides during the talk.     (1H5C)
  • Discussions and Q & A:     (1H6)
    • (Unless the conference host has already muted everyone) Please mute your phone, by pressing "*2" on your phone keypad, when a presentation is in progress. To un-mute, press "*3"     (1H6A)
    • You can type in your questions or comments through the browser based chat session by:     (1H6B)
      • instructions: once you got access to the page, click on the "settings" button, and identify yourself (by modifying the Name field). You can indicate that you want to ask a question verbally by clicking on the "hand" button, and wait for the moderator to call on you; or, type and send your question into the chat window at the bottom of the screen.     (1H6C1)
    • (when everyone is muted) If you want to speak or have questions or remarks to make, please "raise your hand (virtually)" by click on the "hand button" (lower right) on the chat session page. You may speak when acknowledged by the speaker or the session moderator (again, press "*3" on your phone to unmute). Test your voice and introduce yourself first before proceeding with your remarks, please. (Please remember to click on the "hand button" again (to lower your hand) and press "*2" on your phone to mute yourself after you are done speaking.)     (1H6D)
    • thanks to the folks, one can now use a jabber/xmpp client (e.g. gtalk) to join this chatroom. Just add the room as a buddy - (in our case here) ... Handy for mobile devices!     (1H6E)
  • Please note that this session will be recorded, and the audio archive is expected to be made available as open content to our community membership and the public at-large under our prevailing open IPR policy.     (1H11)

SemanticWiki mini-series Background     (1K)

The Semantic Wiki mini-series a 6-month mini-series comprising Talks, Panel Discussions and Online Discourse. The series is co-organized by FZI Karlsruhe, Mayo Clinic, Ontolog, RPI Tetherless World Constellation and Salzburg Research, Austria. This represents a collaborative effort between members from academia, research, software engineering, semantic web and ontology communities. The 6-month mini-series intends to bring together developers, administrators and users of semantic wikis, and provide a platform where they can conveniently share ideas and insights. Through a series of (mainly virtual) talks, panel discussions, online discourse and even face-to-face meetings, participants will survey the state-of-the-art in semantic wiki technology and get exposure to exemplary use cases and applications. Together, they will study trends, challenges and the outlook for semantic wikis, and explore opportunities for collaboration in the very promising technology, approach or philosophy which people has labeled "semantic wiki."     (1K1)

This series of virtual events will dovetail into the face-to-face workshop: "Social Semantic Web: Where Web 2.0 Meets Web 3.0" at the AAAI Spring Symposium (March 23-25, 2009 at Stanford, California, USA - see: ).     (1K2)

See: our SemanticWiki mini-series homepage and the developing program for the rest of the series.     (1K3)

Session Abstract: Semantic Wiki Applications & Use Cases (1): vertical applications     (1L)

Semantic wikis have grown beyond their initial use as community-developed web sites to support full applications, often as web portals. Today's session will focus on "vertical" applications specific to a given domain, while Session 5 will focus on "horizontal" applications that are more domain neutral.     (1L2)
The purpose of this session is to showcase some of the domain specific applications that utilize semantic wikis. Our panelists will be presenting applications in the Biomedical Informatics, Healthcare, Mapping and Mathematics domains.     (1L3)
  • ChristophLange (Jacobs University)     (1L6)
    • Talk-5 (15 min.) "Semantic Wikis for Mathematics -- a State-of-the-Art Survey"     (1L6A)
      • Abstract: Modern mathematical research is supported by computers in many ways, but there     (1L6A1)

is still a lack of support for (web) collaboration on mathematical knowledge. In this talk, I present a short survey on (more or less) semantic wikis for managing mathematical knowledge. The challenge of agility vs. formal correctness will be of special interest. The talk concludes with an outlook into (inter)active mathematical documents and integrating them with my mathematical semantic wiki SWiM.     (1L7)
