Abstract

In the decade (2001–2011) that has passed since Semantic Wikis were first proposed, systems have been conceived, developed and used for various purposes. This article aims at giving a comprehensive state-of-the-art overview of the research on Semantic Wikis, stressing what makes them easy to use by a wide and possibly inexperienced audience. This article further describes applications and use cases that have driven the research on Semantic Wikis, software techniques, and architectures that have been proposed for Semantic Wikis. Finally, this article suggests possible ways ahead for further research.
