open-source software and free content.
The conference will run for 3 days, with an optional welcome dinner on
August 25th, and the special closing Wikimania party on Augusts 28th.
Besides the exciting conferences, we are planning a set of activities
for those who also want to enjoy Buenos Aires renowned nightlife. So
don't forget to polish your shoes to dance tango and reading your eyes
for a lot of sightseeing!
We will be opening the call for speakers and scholarship applications
during the following weeks, and the assistance registration in March.
