Semantic MediaWiki+ (SMW+) is a semantic enterprise wiki for workgroups, departments or companies. SMW+ is ready-to-use and comes as preconfigured bundle of MediaWiki extensions, most notably Semantic MediaWiki and the Halo Extension. SMW+ is designed to leverage the hidden knowledge often locked up in unstructured content. It combines the collaborative authoring approach of a wiki with semantic technology.

SMW+ emerged from Project Halo with the objective of providing scientists a platform for collaborative knowledge engineering in the domains of chemistry and physics. This platform should allow that machine-interpretable knowledge can not only be authored by special knowledge engineers, but also by a large community of subject matter experts. SMW+ is being used amongst others by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of the UNESCO to power an online encyclopedia for oceanography. Further areas of application include Project- and Knowledge Management.
