Apply to host WordCamp Europe 2016 | #WCEU

When WordCamp Europe was born the idea was to host it in a different European city every year. The reasoning behind this is quite clear – gather WordPress enthusiasts from all around the continent in a new exciting place each year to share knowledge, have fun and get to know the local community of that country and city.

The choice which city to host WordCamp Europe for each year is made by the organising team of the previous year based on applications that european communities submit, much like a standard WordCamp application, just on a different scale.

We have to consider many different aspects of the application – from how well prepared the budget and venue research were and how strong and well established the local community is to things like the location itself, where on the map it is compared to the location of the year before, how affordable it would be for attendees, is it easy to get there and how strong the local team is.

Leiden, Sofia, Seville…

This year we skipped the open call for applications to host WordCamp Europe. There was only one reason behind this decision – time. As we wanted to move WordCamp Europe in the first half of the year, we were quite limited in time. So instead of publishing an open call for applications, we reached out to some of the best established WordPress communities in Europe and asked them to assemble a team and prepare bids to host WCEU 2015.

We chose Seville because it had the best mixture of everything we were looking for – exotic location, affordable, well-connected with the rest of Europe,  a very experienced local team and a strong WordPress community.

From 2015 on the host city for each WordCamp Europe will be chosen after a public bidding process. Starting right now.

Apply to host WordCamp Europe 2016

The application process is now open and we would love to have you on board. To apply, you need to prepare a budget and fill out an application form. The call for hosting WordCamp Europe 2016 will be open until April 24th. If you want to do it and believe you can pull it off,

We’re very excited for you!

Love,
The organising team

Speaker applications for #WCEU are now closed!

We’d like to say “Thank you” to everyone who submitted a talk proposal (or five) to WordCamp Europe 2015. We are really excited about all the 171 applications we received and are already digging into them in detail so we can bring the greatest line up possible to Seville.

All applicants will be contacted by the WordCamp Europe speakers team by March 16, so stay tuned!

Like we’ve done in the past two years, there will be certain things we will be looking for when making the decision about which talks to include:

  • Diversity of subject — since WordCamp Europe will attract people from different areas, we need to make sure that we’re providing content that’s useful for developers, designers, bloggers, business owners, and everyone else in between.
  • Diversity of geographical location and gender — the final schedule will represent the WordPress community worldwide, while particularly showcasing WordPressers in Europe.
  • Novelty — is the presentation saying something new? Or saying something old in a new way?
  • Relevance — is the content relevant to WordPress and WordPress users today?

And here is some data on the applications we received

We got 171 applications from 30 countries all over the world. That’s almost 93% more applications than we received for WordCamp Europe 2014 when we got 88 applications from 19 countries.  Thank you again to everyone who applied.

Screenshot 2015-03-01 01.10.05

  • Europe 104 (61%)

Get to know Seville – how to get there

Seville (Spanish: Sevilla) is the capital of Andalucia and the cultural and financial centre of southern Spain. A city of just over 750,000 inhabitants (1.6 million in the metropolitan area, making it Spain’s 4th largest city), Seville is Andalucia’s top destination, with much to offer the traveler.

sevilla-airport-terminal

Airport

Sevilla International Airport (IATA: SVQ) is located about 20 minutes drive from the city center.

Get in

  • By taxi – Taxis are always available next to the bus stop and run on a fixed fare to Seville center, €21.90 during the day and €24.41 after 10PM and on weekends/holidays. For the fixed airport fare taxi drivers turn off the meter. Much controversy has been stirred by some taxi drivers trying to overcharge tourists, so be careful to pay no more than this if you are traveling into the city (agree the price before the start of the journey). Other destinations outside Seville obviously cost more and are metered. Tips are not necessary, though €1-2 for polite, helpful service is appreciated. You might also want to be aware of the fact that speed limits seem to be considered as kind of minimum speed by most taxi drivers…
  • By bus – A bus service “Especial Aeropuerto (EA)” [2] runs about every 30 minutes from just outside the “Arrivals” hall during most of the day (though with longer gaps from 1pm – 4pm) and costs €4 (€6 for a same day return) and takes 20-30 minutes.

Alternatives:

  • Fly to Jerez airport La Parra International Airport (IATA: XRY) located 10km from Jerez de la Frontera, 95 km from Seville. Used by discount airlines such as Ryanair (from Frankfurt-Hahn, London-Stansted).

  • Fly to Madrid (IATA: MAD) is located on the northeast of Madrid, only 12 kilometers from Madrid city centre. From the airport, T4, you can take Cercanias train C-1 line to Atocha train station (30 mins) and then the AVE train (high speed) to Seville (2h30m). Seville’s train station is centrally located and with lots of buses/taxi/local trains connections, so it’ll be easy to connect from there to wherever he needs to go afterwards.

  • Fly to Málaga (IATA: AGP) is located 14,8 km from Málaga centre. There are plenty of direct trains from Malaga to Sevilla everyday. Have a look on www.renfe.es for times. The MD trains are the cheapest at E23,20 one way, Journey time about 2.30 mins.

By Train

Sevilla Santa Justa Station is on the eastern edge of Seville city centre. Completed in 1991, the station is the southern terminus of the Spanish high-speed AVE train service.

High-speed are great if time is of the essence, less than an hour from the wonderful city of Córdoba, less than three hours run from Madrid to Seville. However, slower trains remain a bargain, and there is an overnight train that runs from Barcelona to Seville in under 11 hours.

By Bus

The Spanish bus service is punctual and comfortable with most having air-con and a toilet. Believe it or not, to get to Seville from other cities in Spain it can sometimes be only minimally longer than train (but much cheaper). Check out your options first with the helpful Information desk you will find inside any terminal. The buses run regularly to/from most major cities, departing either from the Plaza de Armas bus station near the river, or the Prado de San Sebastián station near the University/Santa Cruz. Sometime queue for buying ticket from the ticket office on a busy day might take up to 20 min or more.

Public transit

Sevilla has a great public transportation system.

Buses run frequently and cover the majority of the city in their routes. You can purchase bus cards at many news stands. Trips cost 60c or 70c, and it costs €1.50 to buy a refillable bus card (which can be topped up at many newsstands).

Sevici bikes are available throughout the city with special docking stations that allow you to easily grab a bike and go wherever you need, then drop it off at another station when you arrive. Bikes cost 11,50 euro for a week pass, which allows the first half hour free and subsequent hours are a euro each. Also, year passes can be purchased for 23 euro with each half hour free and additional hours 50 euro cents.

Scooters are available for rent for €30 for the day and €120 for the week. These are a cost efficient way of getting around and a driver’s license is not necessary.

A tram system is currently being incorporated into Sevilla’s local transportation and is running from the San Bernardo Train Station to the Plaza Nueva.

Taxis are easily accessible throughout the city.

Metro

Seville’s metro opened on 2 April 2009. It follows a 18km reverse U from the south-west to the south-east through the southern end of the city centre where it stops at Plaza de Cuba, Prado de San Sebastian and San Bernardo. Tickets are €1.30 for a single zone or €4.50 for all 3 zones unlimited trips, and the metro runs from 6.30AM-11PM on weekdays, and late departures are available on Fridays and Saturdays until 2 o’clock.

Drive in / Parking

Driving is also always an option for long distance travel in Spain, but isn’t as convenient or as useful once in town.

Conozca Sevilla – cómo llegar

Sevilla es la capital de Andalucía, centro cultural y financiero del sur de España. Una ciudad de unos 700.000 habitantes (1.6 millones en el área metropolitana, siendo la 4ª ciudad más grande de España). Sevilla es uno de los destinos más visitados de España, con mucho que ofrecer a los viajeros.

Aeropuerto

Aeropuerto Internacional de Sevilla (IATA: SVQ) Está situado a unos 20 minutos en coche del centro de la ciudad.


Other alternatives:

- Una alternativa es volar al aeropuerto de Jerez: Aeropuerto Internacional La Parra (IATA: XRY) situado a 10km de Jerez de la Frontera, a 95 kms de Sevilla. El cual es usado por aerolíneas de bajo coste como Ryanair (desde Frankfurt-Hahn, London-Stansted).

- El aeropuerto de Madrid (IATA: MAD) se encuentra al noreste de Madrid, a sólo 12 kilómetros del centro de la ciudad. Desde el aeropuerto, T4, tú puedes coger el cercanías C-1 para ir a la estación de tren de Atocha (30 minutos) y allí puedes coger el AVE a Sevilla (2h30m). La estación de tren de Sevilla Santa Justa etá muy centríca y hay taxis, autobuses y otras conexiones de tren, por lo que te será fácil conectar desde allí a donde quieras que ir después.

- El aeropuerto de Málaga (IATA: AGP) se encuentra a 14,8kms del centro de la ciudad. Hay un montón de trenes directos desdeMñalaga a Sevilla cada día. Eche un vistazo en www.renfe.es. Los trenes MD son los más baratos 23,20€ y el recorrido es de aproximadamente 2,30 minutos.

Para llegar a la ciudad

  • En taxi – Los taxis siempre están disponibles al lado de la parada del autobús y tienen una tarifa plana para llevarte al centro de Sevilla: 21’90€ durante el día y 24’41€ a partir de las 22:00 y durante fines de semana/vacaciones. Debido a esta tarifa plana, los taxistas apagan el taxímetro. Ha habido casos en los que se ha intentado cobrar de más a turistas, así que presta atención en no pagar más si estás viajando al centro (confirma el precio antes de empezar la carrera). Otros destinos fuera de Sevilla obviamente cuestan más y se usa el taxímetro. Las propinas no son necesarias, aunque 1-2€ de cortesía por un buen servicio son apreciados. También deberías estar prevenido de que los límites de velocidad parecen ser considerados a veces como el mínimo de velocidad por los taxistas…
  • En autobús – La línea de autobús “Especial Aeropuerto (EA)” [2] sale cada 30 minutos desde la misma salida de “LLegadas” durante casi todo el día (aunque con menos frecuencia entre las 01:00 y las 04:00 de la madrugada) y cuesta 4€ (6€ por ida y vuelta el mismo día) y tarda unos 20-30 minutos.

En tren

La estación de Sevilla Santa Justa es en el extremo este del centro de la ciudad. Terminada en 1991, la estación es la terminal sur del servicio de tren de alta velocidad AVE español.
La alta velocidad permite ahorrar tiempo, a menos de una hora de la maravillosa ciudad de Córdoba, a menos de tres horas Madrid. Sin embargo, los trenes más lentos siguen siendo una ganga, y hay un tren nocturno que va desde de Barcelona a Sevilla en menos de 11 horas.

En autobús

El servicio de autobuses español es puntual y cómodo, la mayoría tiene aire acondicionado y un aseo. Lo creas o no, para llegar a Sevilla desde otras ciudades española a veces es más tiempo que en tren (pero mucho más barato). Echa un vistazo a las opciones de primera con el útil mostrador de información se encuentra en el interior de cualquier terminal. Los autobuses salen regularmente a / de las ciudades más importantes, partiendo ya sea de la estación de autobuses Plaza de Armas cerca del río, o la estación del Prado de San Sebastián cerca de la Universidad / Santa Cruz. Hacer cola para comprar entradas en la taquilla en un día ajetreado podrías tardar 20 minutos o más.

Las bicicletas cuestan 11,50 euros a la semana, las primeras medias horas son gratis y posteriores son un euro cada una. También, hay pases anuales que se pueden comprar por € 23 con cada media hora gratis y adicionales horas 50 céntimos de euro.

Scooters están disponibles para alquilar por € 30 para el día y 120 € para la semana. Estos son una manera rentable de moverte y una licencia de conducir no es necesario.

El tranvía se ha incorporando al transporte local de Sevilla y está funcionando desde la estación de tren de San Bernardo a la Plaza Nueva.

Los taxis son de fácil acceso en toda la ciudad.

Metro

El metro de Sevilla abrió el 2 de abril de 2009. Va desde el suroeste hacia el sur-este a través del extremo sur del centro de la ciudad donde se detiene en la Plaza de Cuba, Prado de San Sebastián y San Bernardo. Los viajes cuestan € 1,30 para una sola zona o € 4.50 para los 3 zonas viajes ilimitados, y el metro está abierto desde 6.30 a 11 PM de lunes a viernes, y las salidas finales están disponibles los viernes y sábados hasta las 2:00.

Conducir en / Parking

Conducir es también una opción para los viajes de larga distancia en España, pero no es tan conveniente una vez en la ciudad.
