6th International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym 2010) will be held in Gdansk, Poland July 7-9 and colocated with Wikimania 2010. Wikimania will be held after the WikiSym conference. Among the organizers are Phoebe Ayers and Felipe Ortega. The paper deadline was March 7 2010.

Cliff Lampe and Andrew Lih gave keynote talks. Lampe gave examples on sociotechnical systems such as Wikipedia, yelp, patientslikeme, couchsurfing, craigslist, and pointed to Paul Resnick, Judith Donath ('signals in social supernets'), Barry Wellman ('Connecting community: on- and off-line'), Jonathan Grudin ('Why groupware applications fail'), Joe Walther ('interpersonal effects in computer-mediated communication') and Communitylab.

Demonstrations were WikiPics by Daniel Kinzler, GravPad by Joseph Corneli (extension of EtherPad with wikilinks), Woogle4MediaWiki (a social search MediaWiki extension) and the Wikipedia antivandalism system STiki by Andrew West. STiki uses instances of rollbacks for labeling data. STiki researchers found vandalism edits are shorter, occuring during workhours, are more often performed by editors with no longer registration history. STiki uses IRC and edits in Wikipedia, see also:



Other talks were given by Guillaume Paumier.
