WikiSym + OpenSym 2013 is the 2013 Joint International Symposium on Open Collaboration, a conference for and by researchers and practitioners of open collaboration, scheduled to take place in Hong Kong on Aug 5-7, 2013.

WikiSym + OpenSym 2013 took place at Hong Kong’s Cyberport facility. 98 registered participants from around the world enjoyed a two-track program centered on the common topic of open collaboration. Four keynotes and invited talks covered topics of open access, open educational resources, Wikipedia research, and open science. Open access, open source, and traditional wiki research contributed several sessions. A main thread was Wikipedia research, which was strongly represented at the conference, perhaps not surprisingly given that we had co-located WikiSym with Wikimania, the Wikipedia user conference. Social media coverage was strong, as can be seen from Twitter and Google Plus searches.

This conference belongs additionally to the series WIKISYM
