I didn't read anything about Type B on the Wikimania website. This does complicate things for me as I don't have a proper connector. I come from India which uses Types C and D. But I am not sure if the Type C used in India will be compatible with the Type C of Egypt. Which type of socket does the Wikimania site have? Is there any facility there of buying/renting converters?

B or C. (B has earth and in some hotels, only B type socket is
available). If you have a laptop, your AC adopter may be 100-220V
valiable, so no worry. But yes, getting a right connector is crucial.

I'm in Cairo until 16th morning. If someone is willing to join, feel
free to leave a message at 2773 5307. Thanks.
