Team OS/2 Deutschland e.V. and are pleased to announce that WARPSTOCK EUROPE 2008 will be held at the City Hostel Düsseldorf, Germany on November 14-16, 2008. For more information, visit the Warpstock Europe web site at:

Warpstock is an annual conference for the OS/2 and eComStation operating systems and related technology. It is dedicated to information, education, support, and exchange and addresses users, developers, and software vendors. To achieve these goals, the event offers seminars and workshops, exhibition areas, and room for personal exchange.

Warpstock conferences are held in different parts of the world. The originating event is targeted at the users of the United States of America and Canada, while the Warpstock Europe event obviously is its European counterpart. Also, there is the Warpstock Czech Repuplic, which dedicated to the community within the Czech Republic and countries of Eastern Europe.

OS/2 and eComStation users from Europe--and anywhere else for that matter--are invited to come to Germany this year to attend Warpstock Europe 2008. The Event Team has many ideas on what to offer during this three day OS/2-fest.

Warpstock Europe 2008 will be an excellent opportunity to attend high-quality presentations about a variety of OS/2- and eComStation-related subjects, exchange ideas with other developers, meet the people behind projects, get support from user groups, and talk to other users.

Located in the heart of Western Europe near the Dutch border, Düsseldorf is at a convenient travelling distance for people coming from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France. Attendees flying in from other countries will arrive at Düsseldorf International Airport, which is only 10 km away from the event location. The distance to the railway station Düsseldorf Main Station is 5 km. Public transport to the event location is available.

Following a complete refurbishment, Düsseldorf now boasts the most modern youth hostel in Europe. The City Hostel offers 96 sunny and stylish rooms, all with ensuite shower and toilet facilites, and 386 beds. The innovatively designed building also houses a very popular bistro and outdoor terrace--the perfect place to unwind after a busy day in this exciting city! Four conference rooms will host sessions, workshops, and the exhibition area, while a restaurant takes care of the physical well-being. The hostel is located directly at the left bank of the river Rhine opposite the famous historic city centre, making it a perfect starting point for everybody who wants to extend his visit beyond the duration of the event itself and avail themselves to the opportunity of a broad range of cultural offerings.

Behind the organisation of Warpstock Europe 2008 is an international group of OS/2 users, lead by Wolfgang Wilms, chairman of organiser Team OS/2 Deutschland e.V., and Christian Langanke, chairman of the supporting Team OS/2 Ruhr e.V. Both have vast experience in running such events as they already created Warpstock Europe 2000 in Karlsruhe and provided support for other events. This event will again benefit from the support of, an organisation with the goal of enabling others to create OS/2-related events by providing information about event organisation, a communication and coordination center, and the means for running event web sites as well.
