Meet face-to-face with fellow PhysComp / WSN / JeeStuff enthusiasts hosted by jcw, assisted by martynj. Get the latest news, share your ideas and show off your project live (or with pictures - projector with OSX/PC video connector available).
Discussions, presentations, hands-on sessions – it’s all possible, if we get organised appropriately!
|. **Date* |=. Fri - Apr 19, 2013 - 18:00 to 20:00, 20:00 to 22:00
Sat - Apr 20, 2013 - 9:00 to 13:00, 13:00 to 17:00, 18:00 to 20:00 |.
| **Location* |=. Theater aan de Slinger / College De Heemlanden
**[Houten](http://maps.google.nl/maps?q=De+Slinger+48,+houten), NL |
The location of this event is Houten, 10 minutes south of Utrecht:
* Theater aan de Slinger is right next to the railway station.
If you have to come by car, drive to “Kamillehof, Houten”.
The cost will be €10 for those who come only on Friday evening, or €25 if you come on both
days or Saturday-only, including a light sandwich lunch (pizza in the evenings will be extra).
For more options, consider a hotel in Utrecht - close to the central railway station (e.g. the Plaza Hotel) is probably most convenient. It’s a 10-minute train ride, and there are trains to/from Houten every 15 minutes.
This event will be structured as a BarCamp, i.e. highly participatory, and planned + structured at the start of the event, including 15-minute time slots for presentations, so please get in touch (better still: edit this wiki directly) if you’d like to present an idea, project, or topic:

There is a VGA projector and WiFi in the main room.
Informal discussions about any topic deemed interesting. We can split up and discuss these in smaller groups, even in parallel in different rooms if needed. Whatever works to exchange experiences and ideas:

PS. These sessions did not take place - everyone ended up following the main presentations…
To get an idea how many will attend and help the organisers do their job, please
add your name to this list the list is now closed. See the Doodle screendump below for details. This was not intended as commitment, the chosen venue is able to accommodate 25 people (one room) on Friday and 35 on Saturday (two rooms), so all should be well. See you on one or both of the JeeDays!
