The agenda is usually pretty loosely defined and is often refined throughout the conference, but the topics will be largely constrained to those relating to Wine development. If there is a topic you would like to discuss, send an email to the wineconf mailing list. We usually also set aside time for ad-hoc working groups; we'll keep scratch pads handy for such conversations.

There is one traditional item you do not want to miss though:

  • Saturday, 9:00 - Keynote presentation by Alexandre

Other talk/discussion proposals:

  • WineTest Review
  • CodeWeavers update
  • Swag/Branding discussion
  • Project Hangover: x86 emulation on ARM with Wine+Qemu (André, Stefan)

(more TBA, feel free to add more items to the list)

Hotel reservation

We have a pool of rooms at fixed price 325 PLN/night (around 77 EUR/night) reserved for WineConf attendees. To make a reservation, please fill the form and e-mail it to the hotel (you can change the arrival/departure dates).

Please also fill RSVP form (even if you're not staying in the hotel), so that we know you're coming.

Getting there

By Plane:

The nearest airport is Wrocław Airport (WRO).

From the airport, you have two choices to get to the hotel. A taxi cab will cost you about 50 PLN (~15 EUR) for the trip (see air port page for details). The 106 bus line will get you to the hotel in about 45 minutes. Exit the bus at Orląt Lwowskich bus stop and take ~10 minutes walk to the hotel. You can also use Uber.

By Train:

The train station nearest to the hotel is Wrocław Główny railway station. It's around 25 minutes away by foot from the hotel. There's lots of options of getting from there by tram. The easiest is to take tram no 15 and go to Rynek stop.

By Car:

The city centre is quite crowded. It may be hard to find a parking place there (it's free to park near town square on weekends and after 6 PM). Parking at the hotel should be possible but is expensive.If you wish to avoid parking fees let us know, it should be possible to find a place free to park nearby.

It's easiest to buy the tickets for public transportation in bus/tram. There's a machine that sells them in every vehicle. It's only possible to pay by credit/debit card. If you prefer to pay by cash you should buy the ticket in e.g. newspaper shop. The best page to find public transportation routes is (Google Maps also may be used, but it's known to miss some connections).

It's also possible to pay by card in most taxis (but you have to confirm it with the driver).


If you want to do some sightseeing in Wroclaw, area around Sofitel Hotel is a good place to start. It's just next to Market Square (called Rynek), which is the main tourist attraction in Wrocław. All the area around Rynek is nice for walking.

Ostrów Tumski is the oldest part of the town. It's in walking distance from the hotel.

There are multiple museums in the city. Panorama Racławicka, a 15x114m large paining, is also very popular for tourists (tickets are often sold out, so it's safer to buy them online in advance).

Next to the Sofitel hotel, there is St. Elizabeth's Church, which has a high tower with very nice view of the city (warning: 200 stairs climbing).
