If last year is any indication, Wikimania will involve a week of community gatherings, discussions and hacking; with a few days of packed presentations and large crowds. There will be trips into the city and surrounding countryside.

Wikimania will take place from the 4th to the 6th of August 2006. There will be trips, planned and unplanned, into the city and surrounding countryside. Information about orienting oneself on campus and having a good time in Boston is gathered here.
