Wikimania 2010: Call for Participation is there!

Wikimania is an annual global event devoted to Wikimedia projects 
around the globe (including Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikinews, 
Wiktionary, Wikispecies, Wikimedia Commons, and MediaWiki). The 
conference is a community gathering, giving the editors, users 
and developers of Wikimedia projects an opportunity to meet each 
other, exchange ideas, report on research and projects, and 
collaborate on the future of the projects. The conference is open 
to the public, and is a chance for educators, researchers, 
programmers and free culture activists who are interested in the 
Wikimedia projects to learn more and share ideas about the 
Wikimedia projects.

This year's conference will be held JULY 9-11, 2010 in Gdansk, 
Poland at Polish Baltic Philharmonic. For more information, please 
visit the official Wikimania 2010 site:

Wikimania 2010 will be a mix of submitted talks, open space 
meetings, birds of a feather groups, and lightning talks. 
Submissions will be discussed and selected in an informal process
on the wiki. If your submission is not added to the schedule, you 
will still have many opportunities to bring topics forward
