SMWCon Fall 2011 registration now open


Aug 12, 2011. We are happy to announce that you can now register for SMWCon Fall 2011 in Berlin on September 21–23, 2011. Registration is found at

World time clock and TV tower on Alexanderplatz

SMWCon brings together developers, users, and organizations from the Semantic MediaWiki community in particular and everyone interested in managing data in wikis in general. The Fall 2011 event runs for three days September 21–23, 2011:

  • Sept 21: practical tutorials about using SMW (learn about essential aspects of using SMW) + developer consultation (meet with all developers and discuss technical questions)
  • Sept 22–23: community conference with talks and discussions

The detailed program is about to take shape. Contributions are still possible. Please note that the event takes place at the time of the famous Berlin Marathon and a visit of Pope Benedict XVI. Booking hotels soon is recommended.

You can register for the whole event or for the conference days only. Registration includes lunch and coffee on all days + a conference dinner on Sept 22nd. Special subsidised rates are available for students. Moreover, MediaWiki developers are invited to join the first day (in particular the developer consultations) at a reduced rate.

We are stretching ourselves to keep rates as low as possible in spite of additional costs incurred by the rooms this time. We are therefore welcoming sponsors to help back up the finances of the meeting, now and in the future. If your organisation would be interested in becoming an official supporter of the event, please contact the Open Semantic Data Association <>.

SMWCon Fall 2011 is organised by the Web-Based Systems Group at Free University Berlin and by MediaEvent Services.
