Below is an up to date agenda for wineconf 2002. Things are coming together 
great and it should be a information filled event. Thanks to all the 
attendees who are going to make this event worthwhile through their valuable  
presentations. Be sure and get that haircut before coming because my sources 
tell me there will be 3 video cameras capturing this event for later 

We have two full days planned (March 15th-16th). The sessions will go from 
9-5 on both Friday and Saturday. I think all of the international attendees 
are coming in on Thurs, so they'll be rested up to start at 9am Friday 
morning. Both days, breakfast pastries will be provided at the conference 
premises along with lunch. Dinners will be within walking distance on Friday 
and Saturday. 

We're also planning on providing transportation from the airport to hotels on 
Thurs for our out of town guests. So a rental cars may not be necessary 
unless you're planning on extra activities on Sunday that aren't part of the 

As for the conference sessions, the attendees are the speakers, so we're 
asking those in attendance to prepare a 30-45 minute presentation meant to 
educate and inform as well as spur on discussion. If you don't see your name 
on the list below, please send me a topic you would like to give a 
presenation on. I've heard from nearly everyone. 

We have a great conference venue lined up which will have 
plenty of meeting rooms and state of the art presentation capabilities along 
with internet access. To give a presentation, you can either bring a laptop 
to plug into the video projection system or you can email to me your 
presentation and I will insure that it is on a computer plugged into the 
projection system for your presentation. 

There are 2 areas that we'll be focusing on:

Business issues - This will be a combination of presentation from companies 
talking about their business experience with WINE as well as talks on the 
non-technical issues facing WINE. 

Wine Technology - There will be some advanced topics as well as some more 
general overviews. Since ( will be on hand to shoot video 
of all the session, our goal is to have a video series that those newer to 
wine can view at anytime via the net to get up to speed. Alexandre's keynote will set 
the tone and provide a roadmap for many of the discussions. Alexandre's 
keynote will kickoff the conference. 

NOTE: Presentations listed below with a * designate a Friday presentation. If 
there's no asteric, then the presentation will be on Saturday. For maximum 
diversity, we will be alternating between technology presentations and 
business. There will be two technology presentations and then one on a 
business topic. Repeat.
