SWMCon Spring 2015 is in need of contributions. This means you!
We are inviting you to submit your contributions to help collect and put together the
==Call for Contributions==
We need your proposals for talks and tutorials. Talks could be about anything related to
semantics, wikis, or yes semantic wikis! We welcome new contributions on the use of
semantic wikis in different industries and the development and proposal of new tools in
and around the semantic wiki community.
You can propose your contributions on the conference website
in form of regular talks or short lightning talks. All submitted proposals will be
reviewed and we will do our best to consider your proposal in the conference program. If
you've already announced your talk it's now time to expand its description.
We are also looking for folks to help us with our tutorial day. We’re looking for
presentations on the basics of Semantic MediaWiki and related extensions. The deadline is
April 22nd, but we encourage submissions, even in a draft form, as soon as possible to
help with planning.
Please note that all tutorials and presentations will be video and audio recorded and made
available for others after the conference.
