Ciao Roma! WhereCamp EU Is Heading To The Eternal City

The waiting is over. WhereCamp EU is visiting another European city for 2013 and this time we’re going to be in Rome. That’s Roma, Italia by the way, not the station on the Paris Métro and not one of the 16 places in the United States called Rome either.

Ciao!

Here’s the details you need to know …

When?

January 18th and 19th 2013.

Where?

Porta Futuro, Via Galvani 108, 00153, Roma

More To Come

WhereCamp Is Coming Back To Berlin

You can’t keep a good WhereCamp down it seems. Not content with hosting WhereCamp EU in 2011, Berlin is hosting it’s own WhereCamp, appropriately named WhereCamp Berlin.

Those of you who were in Berlin for last year’s WhereCamp EU will know that Berlin is an ideal city for a WhereCamp, offering the perfect combination of scenery, location nerds and some rather fine German beer.

If you’re interested in more details, head on over to the WhereCamp Berlin site, and for those of you who don’t speak that much German (and that includes myself) the event and the website is in English. WhereCamp Berlin kicks off on Friday June 22nd. 2012 at the campus of Beuth University.

So Berlin, have a great WhereCamp and if you’re visiting, don’t forget an Ampelmann souvenir to remind you of your WhereCamp-ing. As they say in Berlin, WhereCamp kommt zurück nach Berlin (WhereCamp is coming back to Berlin).

Amsterdam welcomes whereCampers!

We are finalizing the list of sponsors for whereCampEU. A very important one: the city of Amsterdam. Why? There are a great many reasons for that. First of all, Amsterdammers love maps (and so do the Dutch, well many of them). But more importantly, Amsterdam (already dubbed Appsterdam) likes, no adores creativity. We PICNIC in Amsterdam, we TheNextWeb in Amsterdam, and next weekend we are whereCamping in Amsterdam as well!

The city gov sees Amsterdam as the right kind of town for inspiration and creativity. Add a rich tradition in maps and cartography and there you have it:  the city of Amsterdam welcomes you to whereCampEU.

- In a few days we will announced the final list of sponsors. In a week’s time YOU will be in the driver seat at whereCamp.EU

BTW Lots to do in Amsterdam: http://www.iamsterdam.com/

First some basics: what is whereCampEU?

The UnconferenceWhereCamp Europe is an unconference; inspired by FooCamp and the Silicon Valley WhereCamp which traditionally follows Where 2.0. It’s open to everyone and you drive the agenda and the sessions. It’s what you make it, so come along, listen, contribute and speak. We start with a blank programme, and you post sessions and talk about whatever you want to (as long as there is a map in there somewhere). Some people put together a great presentation, others host debates and discussion – its up to you.

Who Will Be There?
WhereCamp Europe is open to everyone; from über hacker to beginner, from GIS to neogeography, from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 and beyond, from mobile, from web development. If you have an interest in geography and how it’s changing the way in which we interact with the world then you should come along. Check out the list of 2012 whereCampers!

WhereCamp? Where Is It?

WhereCamp draws near. The sponsors are sponsoring. People are booking flights, ferries, and various other forms of transportation. Hotels are being booked and floor space to crash on is being promised.

All is well and good. But where is it? Yes, it’s in London but London’s a bit of a big place.

Fear not, the best things come to those who wait for the organisers to sort things out.

On Friday March 12th. 2010 it’s time to head south of London’s Euston Road to Wallacespace in St. Pancras at 22 Dukes Road, London, WC1H 9PN. OpenStreetMap, Yahoo! Maps link. Google Maps link. Bing Maps link.

Then on Saturday March 13th. 2010 we move north of the Euston Road to the Guardian’s offices near Kings Cross at Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9GU. OpenStreetMap, Yahoo! Maps link. Google Maps link. Bing Maps link.

Naturally we’re deeply grateful and happy to be hosted by these fine institutions. Not got your WhereCamp EU tickets yet though? Look out for further pronouncements on this blog on on the official WhereCampEU Twitter feed.
