The following list is in a vague sequence according to likely time of event (soonest first).
GeoVoCampDC2013 was held
in conjunction with ESTC
Harry Halpin and Keith Alexander have discussed the possibility of organising a VoCamp in Edinburgh. At this point, July might be the best month. Also, there is a huge festival in Edinburgh all of August. We could do VoCamp at the Informatics Forum at the University of Edinburgh.
There is a possibility of a VoCamp in Barcelona or Madrid in Spring 2009, close (in time) to WWW2009. If you're interested in taking part make your enthusiasm known to Peter Mika ;) (see VoCampIbiza2009!)

Austin, TX, USA
Juan Sequeda has expressed an interest in running a VoCamp in Austin, TX. This is going to take place on the weekend of March 28-29. VoCampAustin2009
Washington DC, USA
Ed Summers is interested in trying to help make a VoCamp happen in DC: possibly at the Library of Congress, or elsewhere in the area. There are lots of people doing stuff with OWL, RDFS, RDF, etc in the area... so getting people together around vocabulary development seems like a generally useful thing to try to do. Immediately before or after ISWC2009 (October 2009) has been floated as a potential window for this event.
We are organizing the WOP workshop at ISWC 2009. It is strongly related to Vocamp activities and we are thinking at organizing a Vocamp there supported by the workshop. I'll let you know more precise info soon. (Valentina)
