I planed to attend Wikimania this year, and the Poland consulat tell me
generally they would take 3 weeks for the visa applications.
Also I need invitation letters to Poland first before applying visa.
So my questions are:
- When will Wikimania open for registration?
- Can I get the invitation letters on time?
Thanks for help.
I tried to ask this question to the Gdansk local team privately, dziękuję
but seems they're too busy to reply
so I open a thread here to see what other attendee's plan of Accommodation
for early arrival in Gdansk
a. Will there dorms for us as early as 6th?
b. Do any early arrivals have plans for their accommodation? so we can stay

Early registration is closing soon for WikiSym 2010 -- the sixth
annual symposium on wikis and open collaboration, to be held this year
in Gdansk, Poland. The symposium will feature a keynote by Cliff
Lampe, research papers and panels about wikis and open collaboration,
and an open space track for ongoing discussion. The conference will be
held just before Wikimania 2010, the annual community conference of
the Wikimedia Foundation, which will offer an opportunity for wiki
researchers to meet and interact with Wikimedia community members.
Early registration closes May 30. See:
http://www.wikisym.org/ws2010/Registration for more information.

WikiSym 2010: July 7-9 | http://wikisym.org/ws2010
A quick note regarding early or late accommodation in Gdańsk.
The budget accommodation we have now reserved in student dormitories and similar facilities
is booked from 7th till 13th of July. This includes scholarship recipients.
We are not arranging earlier stay for the Wikiexpedition participants (see http://pl.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikiekspedycja_2010/en), as those people will be moving around the region so their
accommodation should match their route.
There should be no problem, however, to stay in Gdańsk at your place before and after the date,
generally dormitories start to be available around mid-June.
During the registration you will be able to indicate your preferred stay period.
