Wikimania is the annual international conference of the Wikimedia community. It's organized by a different local team each year – in 2012 the conference is taking place in Washington, D.C. Wikimania allows the community and the general public to learn about and share their experiences with free knowledge initiatives all over the world.
The previous conferences were held in Frankfurt, Germany (2005), Boston, USA (2006), Taipei, Taiwan (2007), Alexandria, Egypt (2008), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2009), Gdańsk, Poland (2010), and Haifa, Israel (2011).
Join us for a gathering of experts, enthusiasts, and those who are just curious, in a center of academia, culture, and technology. Engage at the official annual conference of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects. Relish in a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
