In this workshop we will look

  • at the discipline of knowledge management (KM) in general and
  • at SMW's role therein in particular, i.e. Semantic MediaWiki for knowledge management or "SMW4KM".

The goal is to investigate the set of ingredients that facilitates cooking up a compelling story for promoting SMW as probably the world's best knowledge management system.

In the sense of "use yourself what you recommend others to use" the workshop's core deliverable shall therefore be an ontology that uses SMW to manage the knowledge necessary to promote SMW4KM.

Some Keywords

  • Understanding SMW as your "STATWA" (be curious what this acronym stands for :)
  • Phenomenon/Principle/Concept/Implementation
  • Theoretical approach: Duck-typing KM by application-agnostic KM Principles and KM Aspects
    • KM Principle "Quick concept recognition (QCR)": the importance of facets
    • KM Principle "Scuba over Sky (SOS)"
  • Practical approach: Selected illustrative KM Use Cases
    • KM Use Case "PRINCE2:Manage PRINCE2 artefacts"
  • SMW's role between the two approaches: KM-SMW Concepts
    • KM Practice Patterns
      • Work environment setup
      • KM Practice Pattern "Let factorization and structure emerge from tentatively generally tagged information"
    • SMW Design Patterns
      • SMW Design Pattern "Semantic Category"
    • SMW Features
    • SMW Symbols
