The Warpstock Europe Event Team is pleased to announce that WARPSTOCK EUROPE 2007 will be held at the Stayokay Valkenswaard hostel, the Netherlands on November 2-4, 2007. For more information, visit the Warpstock Europe web site at:
Warpstock is an annual conference for the OS/2 and eComStation operating systems and related technology. It is dedicated to information, education, support, and exchange and addresses users, developers, and software vendors. To achieve these goals, the event offers seminars and workshops, exhibition areas, and room for personal exchange.
Warpstock conferences are held in different parts of the world. The originating event is targeted at the users of the United States of America and Canada, while the Warpstock Europe event obviously is its European counterpart. Also, there is the Warpstock Czech Repuplic, which dedicated to the community within the Czech Republic and countries of Eastern Europe.
OS/2 and eComStation users from Europe--and anywhere else for that matter--are invited to come to the Netherlands this year to attend Warpstock Europe 2007. Even though the organization of the event is still in its early stages, the Event Team already has many ideas on what to offer during this three day OS/2-fest.
Warpstock Europe 2007 will be an excellent opportunity to attend high-quality presentations about a variety of OS/2- and eComStation-related subjects, exchange ideas with other developers, meet the people behind projects, get support from user groups, and talk to other users.
Located in the heart of Western Europe near the Belgium border, Valkenswaard is at a convenient travelling distance for people coming from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and France. Attendees flying in from other countries will arrive at Eindhoven International Airport, which is only 18 km away from the event location. The distance to the railway station in Eindhoven is under 11 km. Public transport to the event location is available.
The spacious Stayokay hostel has been designed for comfort and utility, and has a capacity of 150 beds. Four conference rooms will host sessions, workshops, and the exhibition area, while a restaurant takes care of the physical well-being. In the evening, visitors can mingle in the bar. Located in a wooded area, the hostel offers all kinds of recreational facilities from table tennis to cycling trails. Together with a range of cultural offerings that includes several museums, this is a great opportunity for everybody who wants to extend his visit beyond the duration of the event itself.
Behind the organisation of Warpstock Europe 2007 is an international group of OS/2 users, lead by Event Team Chairman Keith Merrington. This year also marks a new beginning as this event is the first to benefit from the support of warpevents.eu, an organisation with the goal of enabling others to create OS/2-related events by providing information about event organisation, a communication and coordination center, and the means for running event web sites as well.
