Why is Warpstock Europe 2002 in the Netherlands somewhat different!
Location and lodging
Reading the header you may wonder what makes this years Warpstock event
so special compared to all other ones. Well, let me explain it to you!
As a matter of fact each Warpstock conference is special and no one in
particular. However the only thing which could be different to your
experience is the location! This time the organization team has chosen
a lovely Youth Hostel at Arnhem in Holland. You will find its cosy
atmosphere only at your own home and last but not least it's situated
in a very nice wooded environment. So, you will not be lost in space
and look to no end for big concrete lecturerooms with very high ceilings
The purpose of all this is to give you as a participant the
right facility to exchange knowledge and to get in touch with other
(famous) OS/2 enthusiasts. If you never have been at a Warpstock event
in the past, this year it's really worth a try.
If you prefer to stay at the Youth Hostel during the event, you can check
out availability and make an online booking request here.
The organization team has
made some reservations in advance, so you have to check in as "Warpstock
Booking requests for a real Hotels in Arnhem and its surroundings can be
Molenbeke: an exhibitor/usergroup room
You can view gallery of photos at Gallery.
If you prefer a real hotel over a youth hostel, of course there is the
possibility to make a choice from a wide range of all kind of Hotels in
the city of Arnhem. There is a very nice website to choose
More information about registration and all the things you need to enjoy
Warpstock Europe 2002 are published very soon on the Warpstock website.
Another reason why you should come over to Holland and visit Warpstock Europe
2002 on the 8th - 10th November, is to save money. All prices are including a
delicious lunch each day of your stay and an early registration for three days
will be 30 Euro only!!! Furthermore there is already a bed & breakfast at the
Hostel for 22 Euro (about 22 US dollars).
You will find everything about the online registration and prices on the
Warpstock Europe website and on
All prices mentioned here are only relevant to online registration until
1 week prior to the event. Of course, you are allowed to check in at the
registration desk on the event itself, however it will cost you more money.
Actually, this means that all prices after the 1st of november will be raised
with 5 Euro.
This is quite clear if one considers for one thing that registration during
the event takes a lot of time and for another that it would be very
convenient to us to know the amount of visitors in advance.
So, if you want the right lunch at the very right moment, do your Warpstock
registration on line.
Easy way to get there
Holland is a very small country, so there is no need to travel so much.
Inspecting a globe you will find Arnhem about a 100 km east of Amsterdam,
some 10 km away from the border with Germany. It's about one hour from
Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol) either by car or train. Arnhem is as far as
400km from Hamburg, 165 km from Koeln, 640 km from Basel, 215 km from
Bruxelles and 510 km from Paris.
If you travel by:
- Airplane -
please go to Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol) and from there it's most
convenient to travel by train to the city of Arnhem. You can get information
about trains in Holland from this page. You will
arrive at the Arnhem Centralstation and from there take bus nr 3 to
Alteveer/Burgers Zoo and leave the bus at "Rijnstaete Hospital" busstop.
Finally, you have to walk a little wile, following the green NJHC
- Car -
take the highway A12 towards Arnhem and leave the highway at exit
nr. 26 to Arnhem-North. At first follow the signs to the so called
"Burgers Zoo" and when you see those typical green NJHC signs along
the road you have to follow them. On homepage you
will find a nice picture of this sign.
- Train -
from Germany and Swiss etc. you have many possibilities. One of
them is to take a train to Cologne and from there the International ICE
train to Amsterdam. Take a look at DB homepage for those special
ICE trains to Amsterdam which stop in Arnhem too. If you are traveling
from France or Belgium, the easiest way for you is to travel via Bruxelles,
Rotterdam and Utrecht to Arnhem. The special "Thallys" train to Amsterdam,
which stops in Rotterdam, is an excellent choice in that case.
What could one expect?
If you are dealing with OS/2 or eCS, no matter in what way, one of the most
frequently asked questions is: How to get things working on OS/2............!
So much attention on this Warpstock Europe will be paid to that, e.g. USB
devices, digital camera's, etc.
Dutch, German and Belgian OS/2 usergroups are presenting themselves, showing
you all the practical things you allways wanted to know.
Furthermore vendors will be present with special offers of OS/2 software
(Mensys BV) and full OS/2 supported IBM hardware
The offers you will discover there are really irresistable!
Some presentation sessions by well known people inside the OS/2 world are
We mention here:
- Mensys people : A look at the complete rewritten installation procedure of eCS
- Alain Reykaert: CID install
- Marcus de Geus: REXX-mail
- Bart van Leeuwen: The brand new email client "Lookout/2"
- Peter Kolle: All about the excellent DTP program Maul
- Achim Hasenmueller: Innotek software
- Marcus Montkovski: USB support OS/2
- Zsolt Kadar: That amazing UpdateCD
- Oliver Stein: Get connected by IR
This is only the beginning and there are much more presentations to come.
If you are interested in giving a presentation feel free to contact
Gerrit Schoenmaker or
All speakers at Warpstock get a free bed & breakfast in Alteveer Hostel for
one night! So go ahead and get in touch.
Holland - fairyland
After presentations you have time to visit Arnhem.
Alteveer Hostel is a modern accomodation situated in the on the woody northern
site of Arnhem, which is located at the banks of the river Rhine.
It's close to the bustling city centre and with lots of recreational facilities in the
area. The famous Open Air Museum and Burgers Zoo are within walking distance.
A bit further you will find the Hoge Veluwe National Park with the Kroeller
Mueller Museum and its outstanding collection of art and paintings.
Back to the hotel
The hostel itself
has a very
domesticated atmosphere, modern meeting rooms, a cheerful English pub, snooker
billiard and a nice main lobby with a variety of chairs. There is already a
bed and breakfast for the rate of about $20 per night for a quadruple room.
So the hostel has the ultimate ingredients to exchange knowledge among OS/2
enthousiasts, even during the night! If you are curious about pictures of the
hostel take a look at the site.
See you on Nov 8th - 10th at Warpstock Europe 2002 at Arnhem, The Netherlands!
