Semantic Wikis: Approaches, applications, and perspectives Lecture Notes in Computer Science English 2012 In the decade (2001-2011) that has passed since Semantic Wikis were first proposed, systems have been conceived, developed and used for various purposes. This article aims at giving a comprehensive state-of-the-art overview of the research on Semantic Wikis, stressing what makes them easy to use by a wide and possibly inexperienced audience. This article further describes applications and use cases that have driven the research on Semantic Wikis, software techniques, and architectures that have been proposed for Semantic Wikis. Finally, this article suggests possible ways ahead for further research. 0 0
Ideator - A collaborative enterprise idea management tool powered by KiWi? CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2010 "The most difficult thing with ideas is not to have them. It's to find out if they're good [1]." This position paper demonstrates the requirements for an idea management application and presents the idea management tool Ideator. The Ideator is a software tool which is currently under development and which offers innovative and flexible solutions to idea management in company environments. It is based on the semantic wiki KiWi that is a framework for semantic social software applications. We present several functionalities of the Ideator and show which modifications and extensions of KiWi are necessary for their realisation. 0 0
Combining unstructured, fully structured and semi-structured information in semantic wikis CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2009 The growing impact of Semantic Wikis deduces the importance of finding a strategy to store textual articles, semantic metadata and management data. Due to their different characteristics, each data type requires a specialized storing system, as inappropriate storing reduces performance, robustness, flexibility and scalability. Hence, it is important to identify a sophisticated strategy for storing and synchronizing different types of data structures in a way they provide the best mix of the previously mentioned properties. In this paper we compare fully structured, semi-structured and unstructured data and present their typical appliance. Moreover, we discuss how all data structures can be combined and stored for one application and consider three synchronization design alternatives to keep the distributed data storages consistent. Furthermore, we present the semantic wiki KiWi, which uses an RDF triplestore in combination with a relational database as basis for the persistence of data, and discuss its concrete implementation and design decisions. 0 0
KiWi - A platform for semantic social software CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2009 Semantic Wikis have demonstrated the power of combining Wikis with Semantic Web technology. The KiWi system goes beyond Semantic Wikis by providing a flexible and adaptable platform for building different kinds of Social Semantic Software, powered by Semantic Web technology. This article describes the main functionalities and components of the KiWi system with respect to the user interface and to the system architecture. A particular focus is given to what we call "content versatility", i.e. the reuse of the same content in different kinds of social software applications. The article concludes with an overview of different applications we envision can be built on top of KiWi. 0 0
KiWi - A platform for semantic social software (Demonstration) Lecture Notes in Computer Science English 2009 Semantic Wikis have demonstrated the power of combining Wikis with Semantic Web technology. The KiWi system goes beyond Semantic Wikis by providing a flexible and adaptable platform for building different kinds of Social Semantic Software, powered by Semantic Web technology. While the KiWi project itself is primarily focussed on the knowledge management domain, this demonstration shows how KiWi aspects like the Wiki Principles and Content Versatility can be used to build completely different kinds of Social Software applications. The first application we show is an "ordinary" Semantic Wiki system preloaded with content from a online news site. The second application called TagIT is a map-based system where locations and routes on a map can be "tagged" by users with textual descriptions, SKOS categories, and multimedia material. Both applicatons are built on top of the same KiWi platform and actually share the same content. 0 0

Semantic wiki
Software knowledge management
CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2008 The objective of the project KiWi is to develop an advanced knowledge management system (the "KiWi system") based on a semantic wiki. This poster describes the KiWi project, its technical approach, goals and the two use-cases which will be covered by the KiWi-System. 0 0

Learning with semantic wikis CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2006 The knowledge society requires life-long learning and flexible learning environments that allow learners to learn whenever they have time, whereever they are, and according to their own needs and background knowledge. In this article, we investigate how Semantic Wikis - a combination of Wiki and Semantic Web technology - can support learners in such flexible learning environments. We first summarise common features of Wikis and Semantic Wikis and then describe different aspects of Semantic Wikis for learning. We also introduce our Semantic Wiki system called IkeWiki and show why it is particularly promising as a learning tool. 0 1
