[All apologies for cross-posting]

We are happy to announce that you can now register for

	                    SMWCon Fall 2011
	             Berlin, September 21–23, 2011

	Registration is at http://de.amiando.com/SMWCon_Fall_2011

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 [1]. 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 XXI. 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 <osda at semantic-mediawiki.org>.

SMWCon Fall 2011 is organised by the Web-Based Systems Group at Free 
University Berlin [2] and by MediaEvent Services [3].

Looking forward to seeing you in Berlin!
