The SMWCon Fall 2012 is the 6th Semantic MediaWiki Conference. Its organization follows the successful model of recent conferences:

  • The first day (Wednesday, 24. Oct) was a tutorial day, where we participated in tutorials about basic and advanced SMW topics. After the tutorials there were hands-on sections based on participants' interests. We also discussed a lot of developing issues in parallel. Many SMW and MW developers was available the whole day for discussing questions around SMW and for helping us with our SMW problems.
  • The second and third days (Thursday-Friday, 25.-26. Oct) were regular conference days with keynotes and regular presentations. We also had some lightning talks, where (even on a short notice) anyone some interesting ideas were presented in 5 minutes their ideas in 5 minutes.

For more information about the conference series, see SMWCon. For general discussions or questions about this conference please use the user mailing list.
