WineConf is the Wine Project's annual conference, where members of the Wine community, the broader Free Software community and interested users meet up over food and beverages. We traditionally also have a number of talks by attendees, as well as some formal and informal discussions about anything vaguely Wine related. This year, we will also be celebrating the Wine Project's 25th anniversary.
June 29 - July 1 2018

The airport with the best connection to The Hague is Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS). A possible alternative is Rotterdam The Hague Airport (RTM). There's an approximately 30 minute direct train connection from "Schiphol Airport" to "Den Haag Centraal" (The Hague Central Station) for €8,50. It's about a 10 minute (approximately 1 km) walk from the train station to the hotel, but a taxicab or public transport are options as well.
For attendees travelling from France, Belgium or Germany, the high-speed Thalys may be an option.
The Hague is well connected by road, but please be aware that paid parking is in effect in practically the entire city centre.
Within The Hague:
The Hague has a decent public transport system, as well as plenty of taxicab providers.
The Wine Development Fund will sponsor WineConf attendance for contributors to Wine that would not otherwise be able to attend. Contact Jeremy White to request a sponsorship. If instead you'd like to make a donation to the Wine Development Fund, we'll gladly accept those as well.
The Hague has a decent number of opportunities for tourism; https://denhaag.com/en has some pointers.
This year Aric Stewart has volunteered to take a more active roll on scheduling talk and programme in advance. If you have a presentation you would like to make at this years WineConf please propose the talk either on the email@example.com mailing list or by contacting Aric directly.
- Please provide an estimate of how long your talk will be. We are shooting for approximate 40 minute slots with between 15-20 minutes of talk and with likely an equal amount of question and discussion time afterward. Generally shorter talks are not an issue, however longer talks will need to be discussed and will be considered based on the rest of the schedule.
- Topics should obviously be of interest to the other attendees, i.e., the broader Wine community, but note that that doesn't imply the talk has to be about Wine itself
- If you have a preferred time and date for your talk please indicate that to me when you submit your talk. We will try to make it work as best we can.
In case of sufficient interest there will likely be a Friday afternoon programme, so it may be worth planning to arrive Friday morning rather than Friday evening.
Breakfast at the hotel is open from 7:00 until 12:00, and we have the conference room from 9:00 until 17:00.
Friday June 29
Here are the rough proposed slots, They will be changed and modified as required by the addenda as it gets fleshed out. Understand that even with this shift toward a scheduled day we will not disrupt productive conversation to fit to the schedule. The schedule will warp and flow as required to facilitate the talk, not force the talks to conform to it. This does mean if you are planing to try to attend a given talk you will likely want to arrive a bit early and understand if when you arrive the schedule is either behind or ahead of plan.
