Wikimania 2009, the fifth annual international Wikimedia conference was held August 25-29, 2009 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was the first held in Spanish and in the Southern Hemisphere.
"Wikimania" is an annual face-to-face gathering of enthusiasts of Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikisource and other Wikimedia projects. However, you don't have to physically attend Wikimania to participate. Furthermore, at Wikiversity, we are attempting to find ways to sustain this contact throughout the year. This could include having online meetings - perhaps with the rationale of helping combat climate change by reducing the amount of people travelling the world in jet aircraft. (Have your say!)
At Wikimania 2006 in Boston, Wikiversity was announced as the newest addition to the Wikimedia family of projects. Several learning projects and content development groups here at Wikiversity plan to participate in Wikimania:
