|Events||SMWCon Fall 2013, SMWCon Spring 2014, SMWCon Spring 2015,|
|Building enterprise knowledge using semantic encyclopedias||SMWCon Fall 2013||Building enterprise knowledge using semantic encyclopedias||Our team has created more than 50 semantic encyclopedias since 2006 to build enterprise knowledge at MITRE and customer sites. We will share our social and organizational lessons learned.|
|Revolutionizing page naming with semantic properties||SMWCon Fall 2013||Revolutionizing page naming with semantic properties||Quite often, we find it helpful to have the actual name of a page from the perspective of MediaWiki to be an automatically-generated static page id, while allowing a semantic property to indicate a name that would be meaningful to a user. This creates complications, including how to select a page in a field of a semantic form. To support this alternative approach to page naming, we have used a modified version of the SemanticTitle extension as well as several extensions to SemanticForms that we have custom developed and are in the process of submitting to the open source community.|
|Semantic MediaWiki Farm Infrastructure for Multi-Organizational Sharing||SMWCon Spring 2014||Semantic MediaWiki Farm Infrastructure for Multi-Organizational Sharing||We recently deployed a wiki farm on the MITRE Partnership Network to support collaboration among MITRE and its partners. This talk will discuss the technical aspects of the infrastructure and the deployment process.|
|The Why and How of Wiki Farms||SMWCon Spring 2015||The Why and How of Wiki Farms||I will discuss what has motivated us to craft a repeatable process for creating a wiki farm and will present a "how to" for creating your own wiki farm.|
