‘Distributed wiki’ is a generic term covering various systems, including ‘peer‐to‐peer wiki’, ‘mobile wiki’, ‘offline wiki’, ‘federated wiki’ and others. Distributed wikis distribute their pages among the sites of autonomous participants to address various motivations, including high availability of data, new collaboration models and different viewpoints of subjects. Although existing systems share some common basic concepts, it is often difficult to understand the specificity of each one, the… 
Distributed Wikis and Social Networks: A Good Fit
It is shown how, in the special case of a peer-to-peer wiki, there is a rational incentive for users to self-organize and form a meaningful social network to help assess the subjective quality of wiki entries.
Towards federated social infrastructures for plug-based decentralized social networks
Fuidify is proposed, a decentralized mechanism for deploying an overlay network on top of a physical infrastructure while maximizing network locality and Fluidify uses a dual strategy that exploits both the logical links of an overlay and the physical topology of its underlying network to progressively align one with the other.
Filament: A Cohort Construction Service for Decentralized Collaborative Editing Platforms
A novel cohort-construction approach that allow users editing the same documents to rapidly find each other and is efficient, scalable, and provides beneficial load-balancing properties over the involved peers.
Contemporary Computer Supported Collaboration: Systems, Technologies, Algorithms, and Applications
The field of infrastructure is one of the most active areas in computer-supported collaboration, with research focused on underlying technologies such as cloud computing, big data, service-oriented architectures, smart networks, and grids.
DTNDocs: A delay tolerant peer-to-peer collaborative editing system
This study develops the DTNDocs Android application to explore the possibility of developing a delay tolerant P2P collaborative editing system and uses IBR-DTN to communicate over adelay tolerant network and a modified LogootSplit algorithm for ensuring consistency in shared contents.
Decentralized Data Management for the Semantic Web
A mediator approach allowing to combine semantic data and deep web data and a replication model for the web of data is proposed to improve the performance of queries in the presence of a large number of data sources.
Multiple identities detection in online social media
Depuis 2004, les medias sociaux en ligne ont connu une croissance considerable. Ce developpement rapide a eu des effets interessants pour augmenter la connexionet l'echange d'informations entre les
From wikis to tube guitar amplifier simulations, the universal web platform... (Des wikis aux simulations d'amplificateurs de guitare à lampes, le Web plateforme universelle...)
HAL is a multi-disciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not, for teaching and research institutions in France or abroad.


A Distributed Wiki System Based on Peer-to-Peer File Sharing Principles
P2Pedia is presented, a distributed wiki system applying peer-to-peer file-sharing principles to collaborative editing of documents, where contributors may maintain their own version of each document, while accessing and reusing the contributions of others.
Peer-to-Peer Semantic Wikis
The definition of a clear model for building P2P semantic wikis is defined, operations on this model, intentions of these operations, algorithms to ensure consistency and finally the SWOOKI prototype based on these algorithms are implemented.
Dtwiki: a disconnection and intermittency tolerant wiki
The design and implementation of DTWiki is detailed, a wiki system which explicitly addresses the problem of operating awiki system in an intermittent environment and is able to cope with long-lasting partitions and bad connectivity while providing the functionality of popular wiki software such as MediaWiki and TWiki.
The Wiki Way: Quick Collaboration on the Web
This book discusses the construction of Wiki, the purpose of the Wiki, and the future of Wiki as an open-source community.
Piki - A Peer-to-Peer based Wiki Engine
This paper proposes a purely p2p based wiki engine (PIKI) with the focus on concurrent editing, version control, and decentralized full-text search (in a structured overlay) and elaborate tracking semantic information between linked articles through different versions.
Multi-synchronous Collaborative Semantic Wikis
This paper presents a new model of semantic wiki called Multi-Synchronous Semantic Wiki (MS2W), which extends semantic wikis with multi-synchronous support that allows to create a P2P network of semantic Wikis.
Building a collaborative peer-to-peer wiki system on a structured overlay
Concurrency awareness in a P2P wiki system
Concurrency awareness is introduced, a mechanism that makes users aware about the status of wiki pages in the particular context of a P2P wiki system, which makes traditional awareness mechanisms inadequate and requires the design of a new one.
Wooki: A P2P Wiki-Based Collaborative Writing Tool
This paper addresses the problem of consistency of replicated wiki pages in the context of a P2P wiki system, and presents the architecture and the underlying algorithms of the wooki system.
WikiNEXT: a wiki for exploiting the web of data
The system combines some powerful aspects from (i) wikis, such as ease of use, collaboration and openness, (ii) semantic web/wikis such as making information processable by machines and (iii) web-based IDEs such as instant development and code testing in a web browser.
