Only One Week to Warpstock Europe 2001
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The third edition of Warpstock Europe will take place in only one week time. If you still haven't registered for the event, it is now time to do so. On-line registration is still available at the Mensys web site, but will end on October 28th 2001. For those who do not want to use a credit card for on-line payments, on-site registration will also be available at the Warpstock Europe registration desk. Still, the Event Team would like to ask attendees, including students and HCC members, to register when they can, because knowing how many people will attend will help us with the preparations.
To register for Warpstock Europe and buy your tickets on-line, go to the Mensys web site at : http://shop.mensys.nl/catalogue/mns_WarpStockEurope2001.html
Apart from any potential last-minute modifications, the Warpstock Europe three-day presentation schedule has finally reached its final state. To get an overview of the complete program schedule, go to : http://warpstock.os2.org/en/program On the Exhibitors page at http://warpstock.os2.org/en/exhibitors , all exhibiting companies at the conference are announced. Just one obvious highlight will be the presentation of Virtual PC for OS/2 by Innotek, but there will be a lot more going on at Warpstock Europe 2001 : Mensys will be there to demonstrate eComStation 1.0, Starfire will demonstrate their Starfire Titan product and Golden Code Development will show off their amazing new trace suite. Besides exhibits and presentations, there will be a number of workshops were attendees can get hands-on practice with some of the above mentioned products. Of course, The OS/2 Netlabs will be well presented at Warpstock Europe and ready to show you a number of exciting new software projects for OS/2 and eComStation.
As has been announced earlier, thanks to HCC sponsorship, all HCC members are given free entrance to the event upon display of their current HCC membership card. In addition, all students will benefit from a substantial discount, even when registering on site, upon display of their current student ID card. All registrations will include a complementary CD-ROM containing conference presentation papers and lectures.
The Warpstock Europe Social Event, which will take place on Saturday November 3, will require a separate registration. One price only for everyone, including students and HCC members : 300 BEF, including snacks and live music through the night. Of course, a selection of excellent Belgian beers will be available at the bar.
During the three days of Warpstock Europe, the restaurant on the event site will be open for drinks (coffee, soft drinks, ...) and every day at noon a 3-course lunch will be offered to attendees at a reasonable price. Restaurant tickets can be bought at the registration desk on site.
All on-site payments should be made preferably using Belgian Francs.
Upon arrival at the KHLim conference site, attendees are requested to check in at the registration table to fill out a registration form. The provided data will be used to keep track of attendee numbers, and not for any commercial mass mailings. These registration forms will be available in the Dutch, French, German and English language. Upon registration, every attendee will receive a personalized badge which will give access to the conference rooms and the exhibit hall during the event.
The Event Team would also like to mention that the KH Limburg site is accessible for wheelchairs, with some space in all conference rooms and elevators. If you need these facilities, please contact us to discuss details and parking arrangements.
The Warpstock Europe 2001 Conference will be held on November 2-4, 2001 at the 'KH Limburg' College in Diepenbeek (Hasselt), Belgium. Warpstock Europe is an annual gathering of developers, vendors and users of the OS/2 and eComStation operating systems, for the purpose of education, providing information and support to everyone with an interest in these operating systems or related technology.
