Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

I want to talk about our product ReferenceME. It is free referencing tool that creates references in one click or one scan of a barcode. Our product aim is to link bibliographical content and bring relevant information to users without the need to search. Our long term aim is to verify content within the web and Wiki, bringing an easy referencing tool that can semantically verify a reference. My main conversation would be around how this is important for:

- The future of Wikipedia - The impact it can have on educational establishments using Wiki - The improvement of Wiki content.

We are big fans of Wiki and want to bring an acceptance of Wiki into the University/Research world.
