The 2011 convention was the first SciWorld to have its schedule managed and maintained exclusively on a wiki, specifically SimEnc. Previous conventions had been orgnaized on AOL, with a schedule e-mailed out and posted to message boards, or later, via a website that was updated as events were added.

In addition, this was the first convention that was held in the irc channel of a specific club, namely that of Independence Fleet. This was an innovation of Charles Star, who wanted SciWorld to take on more of an Olympic feel, with a different club hosting the convention each year. Previous conventions were held on AOL, or in the Diaspora Games irc channel.

The 2011 convention was also the first online simming convention to open with a multimedia presentation.
