Morning Session - Development
Overview of the Semantic MediaWiki ecosystem, it's todays relevance in relation to OpenData, WikiData, OpenGLAM and the Semantic Web.
In this talk an object oriented modelling approach based on the JSON Schema format will be introduced for improved maintaining of complex data structure.
The MediaWiki extension "Approved Revs" is great for giving admins the ability to approve edits before allowing them to be displayed to the world. However the current version does not allow certain users to approve some pages and other users to approve other pages. The upcoming release of Approved Revs v1.0 will give this capability. Additionally, it allows approval of files.
This talk details how SMW can be part of an Industry 4.0 landscape.
Afternoon Session - The Wider Picture
Following up the talk in Berlin, 2013, the progress of the Relaunch of HaloACL will be discussed.
Integrating Entity Matching in MediaWiki/SMW to enrich wiki content.
Last year, Wikidata, the project that brings structured data to Wikipedia, was presented at SMWCon. This talk is all about Wikibase, the software behind Wikidata.
For 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!
Evening Session - Outlook
Based on VisualRDF, the Knowledge Base Visualizer (see demo below) allows to visualize RDF-data delivered from a SPARQL-Endpoint as a netzwork-graph. It is possible, to filter nodes and links via and their apperance (color, shape, size) via two seperate SPARQL-queries completely customizable.
About 5.700 historical monuments are located in the Canton of Zürich that are going to be managed and documented in a SMW-based portal that is delivered by DIQA.

Conference Day Two Fri, October 3rd
Introduction & Keynote
Enterprise Linked Data: Open or closed?for developersfor beginners
In this talk I will throw new light on the reasons why metadata is key for professional information management, and why W3C's semantic web standards are so important to reduce costs of data management through economies of scale. I will discuss from a multi-stakeholder perspective several use cases for the industrialization of semantic technologies and linked data.read more
Morning Session - Applications
The PerformanceMonitor extension profiles the work of PHP functions and methods on your server. These "profiles" (i.e. logfiles) are stored as Json-Trees in the file system. After profiling you can use the Special Page Special:PerformanceMonitor to visualise the results as diagrams. The diagrams allow drilling down to more detailed levels and show you, what the f*** the server does all the time you are waiting for it.
How NASA Mission Operations used a semantic wiki to solve its knowledge management problem. The EVA wiki makes our data more useful with semantic properties, queries, and integration with outside databases.
The HR metadata is a wiki where the dutch national government is maintaining a set of HR-related definitions and contextualizations (based on the ISO 11179) model. In this presentation we'd like to show some of the features and ideas we used to build this system and some of troubles we encountered.
In many countries, the remediation of in-house pollutants such as PCB and asbestos has come into the focus. We want to show how SMW powered pollutant register and mapping can be used to document measurements, direct remedial actions and inform stakeholders.
Afternoon Session - User Experience I
Evening Session - User Experience II
By using a single form and one key property, notes from meetings are now appended to associated topic pages (no more searching through email archives!). Going further, how to use the main page as a plaza to annunciate relevant meetings and featured articles.
