Join us at the IKS Semantic Interaction Hackathon in Vienna Next Month
Why do we belief this is needed? Because to provide user-friendly interaction with semantically enriched content, CMSs need better WYSIWYG editors and interaction models than currently available or even imagined. But improving how today’s CMS editors interact with knowledge intensive content is only part of the story. What we want to provide is an interaction framework that is extendable across editors and future interaction needs.
The Semantic Interaction Framework was initiated in Autumm 2010 by the three IKS partners (Salzburg Research, Nemein, and DFKI) and Gentics, an Austrian CMS provider and Aloha developer. The basis for the development of the framework is the research agenda of the IKS project and the industrial need of CMS providers and content editor developers.
We also have a small budget to provide travel and accommodation support if needed.
Interactive Knowledge Stack (IKS) is an open source community, whose projects are focused on building an open and flexible technology platform for semantically enhanced Content Management Systems (CMS). Its mission is to develop an open source stack for knowledge management, broaden the reach of semantic CMS technology and serve as a collaboration and software development hub for the semantic CMS community.
IKS is funded in part by a €6.58m grant from the European Union and governed by a core consortium of seven research partners and six industrial partners and actively encourages corporate and individual participation in the project. For more information, visit the website at: www.iks-project.eu.
