Dress code Academy eventEdit

The dress code for the Academy event is a mix between "business casual" and "informal attire" (please wear with whatever you feel comfortable, I wouldn't recommend jeans and a polo shirt, though)

  • Men: dark trousers, (optional matching jacket), shirt, (optional tie),

black shoes

  • Women: (optional suit) or skirt or trousers, blouse, (optional

matching jacket), closed toe shoes

Getting to the NIH headquarters on Thursday morningEdit

The NIH will organize a van for us all. We'll leave our hotel at 7:50 am (meeting in the lobby at 7:40 am)

Flights homeEdit

Please check your flight plans and make sure you'll leave the hotel early enough. We'll reimburse you for the cab/public transportation.


The Wikimedia Foundation will reimburse you for travel costs related to the NIH Academy event. E.g. If you take public transportation to your airport, please keep the ticket/receipt and send it to our office after the event:

Open questionsEdit

  • People will need to check out of the hotel in the morning. The hotel will store people's luggage?
  • The NIH will arrange for transportation back to the hotel at which time?
