The WikiCon 2014, the largest meeting of the German speaking community and her sister projects, is organized this year from 3 to 5 October in Cologne. Besides lectures and an evening program there are also several excursions to museums and attractions in Cologne. We would welcome it and consider it delighted if Wikipedians from the nearby Benelux countries woulld visit our conference. Until 31 August you can sign up for it including a hotel reservation through this form. You can also decide on a later moment to come but if you then wish to stay multiple days, you have to organise a place for the night yourself.
