Semantic-wiki as a data curation system helping in structuring CMC knowledgeLaura Di RoccoTalk
SMW Multipage Spreadsheet EditingIn a semantic mediawiki pages often have 1:n relations such as event series and event. Editing such a setup is tedious because each page needs to be modified individually. A much more natural approach would be to have a spreadsheet editing capability. In this talk we present a solution based on the python libraries created in the ConfIDent project.Wolfgang Fahl,
Tim Holzheim
Talk
A Smart Guide to Preferred FormatsThe Dutch Digital Heritage Network has developed an online tool - based on SMW - that helps archives and heritage organisations to formulate their policy on file formats. It builds a knowledge base, via a smart combination of codification of formats on one hand and personalisation of tailor made policies on the other. For creating the tool we linked different sources, like Wikidata, Pronom, NARA Risk Matrix and COPTR. Reusing information from different sources is an important starting point, but linking different sources also gives lots of challenges. This talk will explain how the online tool's construction and use of the tool by the target audience.Remco de Boer,

    Keynote: From Semantic Wikipedia to Abstract WikipediaFifteen years ago, Semantic Wikipedia was first proposed. This was the starting point for the development of both Semantic MediaWiki and Wikidata. This year, the Wikimedia Foundation is starting a new project, Abstract Wikipedia. The overarching goal of all these projects is to make knowledge more accessible and easier to work with - to allow more people to share in more knowledge in more languages.Denny VrandečićTalk,

    MediaWiki Cooperation. A user group for 3rd party usersFor quite some time now, the idea has been around to build a separate entity that cares about the use of MediaWiki outside the Wikimedia world. It's time to tackle the task and work our way towards an institution of its own that cares for MediaWiki as a software product. A first effort has been made at Wikimania. Let's shape that user group together!Markus GlaserMediaWiki,

    Introducing Performance MonitorThe PerformanceMonitor extension profiles the work of PHP functions and methods on your server.

    Using SMW to characterize a new hospital challengesIn the context of the planning and execution of the transition of a 3-sites merged hospitals into its brand new designed and built facility, SMW was implemented to facilitate the change process. SMW was used to help the teams and the organization to capture critical knowledge to help their transition towards their new facility. The presenters were at the forefront of the SMW implementation. In this case where the change magnitude for the operations and the whole organization were extraordinary, the presenters who were at the forefront of this work share their experience, lessons learned, and remaining questions. What are the critical things to put in place to ensure buy-in, motivation and confidence, in order to help teams adapt to an agile approach, prototyping and collective working to renew themselves?Guillaume Coulombe,

    Revolutionizing page naming with semantic propertiesQuite 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.Bernadette Clemente,
