Gregoire Japiot has announced WineCampFrance, happening at Lake Geneva (Saint-Paul-en-Chablais), France, from June 15 to the 17th. Here are the details here sent out:

What is WineCamp?

WineCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference, set in the country. It is born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment.

Everyone is encouraged to participate at WineCamp: everyone sets the agenda, presents, leads or gets involved in discussions and creates together.

Where is WineCamp France?

WineCamp France will take place near Lake Geneva in eastern France, in a small town called Saint-Paul-en-Chablais. It is 45 minutes from Geneva; 45 minutes from Lausanne (by boat); 2.5 hours from Lyon (by car) and 3 from Paris (by train).

How much does it cost?

We don’t know yet – depends on sponsors, and people who show up. Normally the cost covers basics – food and supplies. This is not a “conference” with an high admission price. WineCamp Calaveras had great sponsorship, and ended up costing participants $60 (45 Euros).

Who is “we”?

It’s you and anyone else who gets involved. Look at the WineCamp France wiki (see below) for more info about who has signed up to organize the event. The primary organizer and instigator for WineCamp France is Grégoire Japiot. The Smoking Goat is an early adopter and is also organizing and attending.
