Weerkat: An extensible semantic Wiki

Boulain, PR, Parker, MB, Millard, DE and Wills, GB (2006) Weerkat: An extensible semantic Wiki At 8th Annual Conference on WWW Applications, South Africa. 06 - 08 Sep 2006.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Wikis are Web applications that blur the boundaries between readers and authors, allowing non-technical people to author hypertexts through a web interface. A Semantic Wiki is a Wiki that attempts the same thing with the Semantic Web, allowing non-technical users to create semantic resources and/or ontologies. In this paper we characterise the different ways in which a Wiki might support the Semantic Web and present Weerkat, a modular and extensible Wiki that has ontological hypertext support. Key to this has been the design and development of a highly flexible Wiki architecture which allows easy modification and augmentation of functionality.
