Design and Implementation of the Sweble Wikitext Parser: Unlocking the Structured Data of Wikipedia

We will be presenting our paper on the design and implementation of the Sweble Wikitext Parser at the WikiSym 2011 conference! The conference will take place in Mountain View, CA in October.

For those of you who want to take a peek before the conference, we’ve put a pre-print version of the paper in the Sweble Wiki’s downloads section.

We still have some days left for fine-tuning the paper; if you have  any suggestions for improvement, we would love to hear from you.

Sweble Website Launch

Finally, our Sweble [1] project site has launched! And with it one of our first projects is going Open Source: The Wikitext Parser, developed at the Open Source Research Group at the University Erlangen-Nürnberg.

[1] The Sweble project develops and provides libaries and components for a MediaWiki compatible wiki software. An important focus is wiki content analysis.
