DSMW is an extension to Semantic Mediawiki (SMW), it allows to create a network of SMW servers that share common semantic wiki pages. DSMW users can create communication channels between servers and use a publish-subscribe approach to manage the change propagation. DSMW synchronizes concurrent updates of shared semantic pages to ensure their consistency. It offers new collaboration modes to semantic wiki users and supports dataflow-oriented processes.
