Semantic MediaWiki (Foundations for the Web of Information and Services)
Abstract. Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is an extension of MediaWiki – a widely used wiki-engine that also powers Wikipedia – which makes semantic technologies available to broad user communities by smoothly integrating with the established wiki usage. SMW is used productively on a large number of sites world-wide in application areas ranging from science over knowledge management to leisure activities. Meanwhile, a vibrant ecosystem of third-party extensions has grown around SMW, offering many options for extended features and customisations. Yet, the original vision of establishing "Semantic Wikipedia" has remained important for the development of the SMW project, leading to a strong focus on usability and scalability.
