FOSDEM, the Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting

And don't miss the talk of Anca (Luca), on 6th February, from 14:40 to 14:55 PM, Anca Luca, on annotations : "XWiki: Annotating documents, the eXtensible wiki way".

Here is a summary: Since version 2.3, XWiki integrates document annotations in its collaborative environment (http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/Annotations+Application). This talk will focus on the implementation of the annotation feature, with the challenges that an eXtensible wiki implies: handling user collaboration on documents and annotations, annotating dynamically generated content, flexible annotations structure to allow customization. As a default XWiki feature, it allows users to add notes on all types of content, plain unstructured documents or structured documents. It is also used in the Scribo project (http://www.scribo.ws) to manipulate automatic semantic annotations on wiki documents and collaboration around them. Since a demo is worth a thousand words, the presentation will center upon showing all these at work.

For your information, it's totally free and no registration is necessary.
