Using SMW to characterize a new hospital challenges In 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.

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?

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.
