Personalized Conference Calendars

Just add the template Template:ConfCalendar to a page and indicate the event series you are interested:

{{ConfCalendar
 | series = ISWC ESWC WWW ICSC SEMANTICS KEOD JIST
 | limit = 20
 | sort = Submission deadline
}}

See the example Sören_Auer#My_Conference_Calendar.

Identifying Events

Please use:

  • <<acronym>> <<year>> as identifier (page title) for events, e.g. "ISWC 2016".
  • <<acronym>> as identifier (page title) for event series, e.g. "ISWC".

Editing Conference series

Its particularly useful to get an overview of how a conference serie developed over time, e.g. wrt. acceptance rate geographic focus etc.

In most cases, there is a Web page of the steering committee of a conference series, which will contain information about past and future events. Also DBLP is a great source, e.g. http://dblp.uni-trier.de/db/conf/ercimdl/index.html The foreword/preface of the respective proceedings (which is freely accessible in most cases) also usually contains the most important facts about a conference (e.g. chairs, number of submitted and accepted papers etc.).

Bulk Page Creation with XML import

For conference series (and probably other similar types of content), its important to add data to OpenResearch in bulk. Here is how this can be done easily:

The Title should be "{$Acronym}" and each of the variables should aligned with variables in the xml file.

{{Event
|Acronym={$Acronym}
|Title={$Title}
|Series=ESWC
|Type=Conference
|Field=Semantic web
|Start date={$Start}
|End date={$End}
|City={$City}
|State={$State}
|Country={$Country}
|Homepage={$Homepage}
|Submitted papers={$Submissions}
|Accepted papers={$Accepted}
|has general chair={$Chair},
|has program chair={$PC chair}
}}

Bulk page creation wit CSV Import

  • the Data Transfer extension allows to create pages in bulk from CSV
  • Create a CSV file with the page title in the first column and columns for all template attributes named according to the scheme Template[attribute]:
Title,Event[Start date],Event[Series],Event[Submitted papers],Event[Accepted papers],Event[City],Event[State],Event[Country],Event[Field],Event[Type],Event[Title]

Geographical name edit

  • Geonames geographical name decoding is used.
  • It can be checked at geonames whether the geographical name exists or not.
  • If it exits, then the geographical coordinate of the name can be decoded and the map view can be rendered.
  • An alternative name for existing can be created, see geonames manual.
  • If it does not exist, then it can be created. Detail information can be checked at geonames manual.
  • Normally it takes a few days until the API can decode the newly added name, see geonames update.
