As comparatively powerful mobile computing devices become more common, mobile web applications are dramatically gaining popularity. In this paper we present an approach for a mobile semantic collaboration platform based on the OntoWiki framework. It allows users to collect instance data, refine the structure of knowledge bases and browse data using hierarchical or faceted navigation on the go even without present data connection. A crucial part of OntoWiki Mobile is the advanced replication and conflict resolution for RDF content. The approach for conflict resolution is based on a combination of distributed revision control strategies and the EvoPat method for data evolution and ontology refactoring. OntoWiki mobile is available as an HTML5 Web applications and can be used in scenarios, where semantically rich information has to be collected in field-conditions such as during bio-diversity expeditions to remote areas.
