This is a quick notice to remind all interested parties that the
bidding for Wikimania 2009 (note, *not* next year, but just in under
two years' time) will begin shortly after the conclusion of the
Wikimania 2008 bid process, based on our experiences of the process
this time around.

We expect to finalize the bidding process by the end of the year 2007, 
and that the city to host Wikimania 2009 will ideally be chosen by 15 December 2007 at the latest.

Anyone who would be interested in hosting Wikimania in 2009 is
strongly advised to start the process informally now so as to best

The exact composition of the Jury will likely change, but the process 
will stay the same.
